Some of these are pretty edgy - cool! I am in love with the fabric that looks a bit like plastic wrap - I think it is from a Paris show, there was a ballerina outfit with similar fabric!

Now you're talking. This is the shape that I most identify with. To the point that I cannot pick just one. I would wear them all. Helps that they are all so beautiful and intricate. And that floor lengh swish! Gasp, I love :)

I am a buyer for yogoego.com and we love the whole maxi trend! If,like me, you can't afford the real thing you might like the one we have from Forever Unique at the moment. Check it out..http://www.yogoego.com/product-details/manufacturers/156/5206/Brands/Forever-Unique/Forever-Unique-Gem-And-Sequin-Trim-Maxi-Dress.htm

Claire @ slightlynoodles said...

Oo, prints and maxi dresses - two of my favourite things. The red one right at the top of the post caught my eye, so I sauntered over here to have a peek! Unfortunately I've not yet found a maxi dress that doesn't make me look pregnant, but a girl can only hope that the promised day will come soon...

Kris said...

I love the second ring... and those dresses? GORGEOUS!

MizzJ said...

They're all beautiful! I love this trend, it's so wildly creative. I think if I had to, the Dries van Noten was my fav pick as it resembled a silk painting.
