I resisted the maxi movement for a long time, convinced it wouldn't work on my 5'4" body. Then I tried this dress--and loved it! I could honestly live in maxi dresses now, I want to get one for every day of the week. I added a bit of sparkle with this necklace I've had for months, but never actually wore. Finally, my Jeffrey Campbell wedges finished off the outfit perfectly, like they always do.
