Maxi Madness

Maxi Madness. No, not this or this (Do not click if you are easily grossed out, seriously. That means YOU Whoreder Heather).  I am talking about Maxi dresses! Maxi Dresses have been around since 1967, when Osca de La Renta first created a long cotton dress for Elizabeth Arden Salon. They remained on trend until the mid to late 70's, disappeared, and made a come back in the 21st Century.

In the 70's Maxi dresses were mostly lace or polyester and stopped right above the ankle. Nowadays (most) Maxi dresses are jersey material and floor length. For Summer, a Maxi dress may be the easiest thing in the world to throw on and still look cute and put together. Anybody can wear them as they are available in all sizes and lengths to accommodate all us shapes and sizes of women folk.

Here are a  few of my favorite dresses rounded up by price. I include all price ranges because as a Whoreder, I am cheap err...frugal; but every girl deserves to splurge every now and then. If you are more interested in which type of Maxi dress is better for your specific body shape, check out Betty Confidential or this YouTube video clip from E!
