Spring is Here!

Note to Nicole Richie:
I love this look on you. Generally I think long dresses, like this one, do not look good on petite women. You proved me wrong.  I love the unique print of the this vintage dress on you, and I think the sleeves and back of the dress make it interesting. You are definitely rocking a bohemian vibe, and it suits you.

Note to Readers:
I can not even tell you how happy I am that spring is here.  The sun is out, and I am ready to start wearing shorts, dresses, skirts, and everything else that has been buried in the back of my closet for the past few months. This spring we will be seeing a lot of romantic styles and floral prints, and I can't wait! 

If you are going to wear a maxi-dress (I hate the name, but you know what type of dress I am talking about), make sure the dress does not overwhelm you.  This is why I am a little wary about petite women wearing them, but don't worry Nicole has proven you petite body types can still wear them and look fabulous.  Make sure there is enough fabric to create the look you want, but not so much that you can barely see yourself hidden in the dress. I hope that helps. Dresses are a great way to keep cool during the hot summer months.

I am LOVING the maxi dress trend, especially dresses in geometric prints and florals.
But like you, I hate the name.
