I am a fan of maxi dresses, I really am. I just can't wear them. I have tried on countless maxi dresses and purchased none. It's difficult to find one that flatters a petite 5'2 fashionista with short legs. Recently, I have seen several styles of dresses that feature a short hem in the front and tapers to a longer hem in the back. This style seems more flattering for short vertically challenged women. Thus, I present my solution: Business in the Front, Party in the Back!
