The Maxi Dress
I am 5'2 1/2" and unfortunately (or fortunately?)love the maxi-dress. I am forever trying to convince my tall friends to invest in one as I think a tall person REALLY looks good in this and can carry it off much better than someone like me. I do have a few already but I have to wear them with a heel because they are sooo long on me. Maybe it's just me but I think they can make you look taller since it is one continuous piece of fabric from head to toe and with a heel it is elongating (maybe that is just what I tell myself so that I can "get away" with wearing it though).
With that said, I found a new website called SHOPROBERTSON.com which shows celebrity fashion and then you can actually buy the goods right there on the same site. The price ranges dramatically from over 100s of dollars to around $20 for some things so you have to dig...it's like Nordstroms Rack only online. They do have a Robertsons Rack section where you can get 30-70% off!!! My favorite part of the site is the CELEBRITY STYLE section. Note all the MAXI DRESSES the celebs (Jessica Alba) and non-celebs (ie Lauren Conrad) are wearing. ;)
