The Hunt: Bright Maxi
Periodically, a dress comes along that captures my imagination and just will not leave my head. Kate Hudson's yellow dress in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days was like that. So was this chartreuse confection of Barbie's from her recent photoshoot. The fashion world trended toward highlighter yellow over the last year or two, but now we're starting to see some of the lime shades (with a touch more green in them) come back. I've scoured my favorite places to online shop and found a few beauties that seem to fit the vibe. You can check out direct links at our polyvore page, or just scroll through the maxis on the listed sites.
*The dress listed at bloomingdales.com is also available at lordandtaylor.com, in fewer sizes, but at a much better price, so you might want to check there first. :)
Then again, maybe lime, chartreuse, kiwi and their ilk aren't your thing, but the idea of a bright maxi appeals to you. I can totally get on board with that! Gorgeous dresses in sumptuous colors are just like...everything, right? Wear them as is right now, wear them with a jacket or pullover in the fall. Hello, versatility! :) If you need some alternately-colored inspiration, here are some other possibilities to get your creative/purchasing/gift-to-yourself juices flowing. Happy bright-maxi-dress hunting!
