Maximum Effect: The Season’s Best Maxi Dresses~ Tuesday, Jun 10 2008 

All New For 2009

I am not sure how I feel about the Maxi Dresses. Perhaps it is because I have done them already in the ’70’s. They arrived on the Style Scene last Summer and they are back again for 2009, and you can find them everywhere. They can be very feminine and for some, a better alternative to a mini dress. They are great for shopping down Robertson in L.A…….backyard barbecues …..and poolside parties! Here are some of the best ones available for maximum style effect. P.S. Please don’t wear them with closed toe pumps……a real maxi dress is not a formal!
