I don't know about where the rest of ya'll live, but here in LA there's been a serious maxi-dress thing happening lately. I have mixed feelings about maxi dresses for summer...I mean, if it's hot enough outside to wear a strapless or sleeveless dress, isn't it too hot for a long skirt? I love the look of it though...
I also have a huge fondness for those early 70's Hawaiian bark-cloth maxi dresses, probably because my Mom made matching dresses for the two of us to wear when I was a tiny kid. They were purple bark cloth, if I remember right, and we wore them to a Mother/Daughter luncheon at my school. I couldn't have been more than 6 or so!
Anyway, I digress...
Back to the maxi dress thing. There are some amazing dresses on Etsy right now! So colorful and summery looking! I thought I'd share a few of my faves. Enjoy!

The cute one above is by Waltah Clarke...one of my favorite vintage designers of Hawaiian & Aloha wear. I'll have to do a post about him later! Great clothes, great story :-) I'll save it for another time...

I saved the one above for last, because it's my favorite! It's got a tiki print and it's green? It might as well have my name written all over it, hehe. It's really kitschy, but I love it anyway. Look at that fabric!
Hope you all liked these pix...what are your thoughts abut maxi dresses? I'd love to hear!
