Take a long look...

You'll be seeing a lot more of the maxi in months to come! Finally, the days when the mini dress ruled are behind us, and those of us who feel like we have something to hide have something cute to cover ourselves with! You don't have to be 5'10" and stick thin to wear long dresses, I promise. If you've got bigger legs or a little bit of a tummy, choose strapless or halter styles to highlight your shoulders and draw attention away from your trouble spots. I personally have always been a little hesitant to wear dresses.... largely because I'm self conscious about my legs, so I'm pretty excited that the maxi trend is set to last another summer. Sure, a lot of you petite girls out there probably think this is one trend you can't pull off, but you're wrong. Shorter celebs like Kelly Ripa, Hayden Panetierre, and Eva Longoria Parker have been wearing maxi dresses for the last couple of years, and they make them look great! Below, you can see these three wearing Sweetees styles from last summer...

The maxi dress has long been associated with a carefree bohemian lifestyle, and while a long dress can easily be dressed up for a night out, it's also perfect for a walk on the beach or a comfy day of shopping. Who cares if the bottom gets a little dirty?
Below are some of my personal favorites from our latest arrivals: the Cactus dress by Sweetees followed by the Biscayne dress by Trina Turk, both of which can already been found on our website at http://www.shopmcauleys.com/.
Here are two more that just came in earlier this week, but will be online by tomorrow. On the left is Eva Franco's Celeste dress, and on the right is a multi printed dress by Envi. And remember, most of our newer styles are availabel for special order if we happen to be out of your size! Just email or call us to inquire.
That's all for now, but there will be another post later this week. Have a great day everyone!
