To Maxi or Not to Maxi

OK we have all seen it at stores and in magazines, the new rage in summer dresses. The Maxi Dress. The long flowy dress that's, not too long that it drags, but just long enough to cover up. I saw this dress a few seasons ago, on runways and high fashion mags. Looks like it has now trickled down to the main stream fashion retailers. It has now even trickled down to the plus size retailers. I actually like this style of dress but wasn't sure if a "big girl" could pull it off. I'm normally not a follower of too many trends, sticking with classic styles and what looks good on me. Too trendy equals everyone is gonna be wearing it...always been one to go against the crowds. Maxi dresses seem to be the perfect summer must have. They come in so many prints and colors, and from what I have seen look good on many body types. I also have seen many dressy styles for evening and formal events, as well as everyday casual. I recently gave in and purchased 2 Maxi dress, #1: casual for everyday summer wearing around town and #2: dressy for cousins wedding this summer . So I am looking forward to wearing these 2 Maxi dresses this summer. Best part I must share is both were purchase on clearance. Yup! I couldn't believe these dresses were so cheap. Maxi #1was bought at Target for $7.48, retail $29.99, Maxi #2 was bought at LaneBryant.com for $19.99, retail $89. I learned you should never pay full price for fashion, everything goes on clearance towards end of a season. Right now all the spring stuff is on clearance so you can find great deals. Unless you are an uber Fashionista who must have an item the second it comes out, go ahead pay full price. I will have the same stuff as you in a few months and only paid half the price.
