    I think you’ve summed it all up about why we love them so much Jonet. I have a plain coloured Maxi dress that can go from daytime shopping to Ballroom glam in minutes. Finding the right length for me can be hard being petite, but when it’s right I love it!

      I agree with you, Laurie, maxi dresses are so versatile. I have the same problem, since I’m 5’2″, I get so excited when I find one that I don’t have to have altered. Thanks for your comment. Xo Jonet
