To the Max

Have you ever gone into a store to be greeted by a mannequin dressed in a trendy outfit wondering if you could ever pull it off as well as that piece of plastic? One trend that has gained popularity over the past few seasons is the flowy and romantic maxi dress. Being on the short side, this trend posed a few problems for me. But don't let a few roadblocks prevent you from trying something new! Though we short fashion lovers may have to spend a few extra bucks getting the dress altered, because there are many inexpensive options out there, we can still purchase a chic piece without having to spend a fortune! Below are a few dresses that caught my eye!
