Maxi Dresses Make My Day

If you peek inside my closet, you’d find a whole section dedicated to maxi dresses. I don’t know what it is about the big boho frocks, but I love them. Maybe it’s being all neatly tucked inside. Maybe it’s the lazy factor of not having to find a separate top or matching bottom to go along with. Maybe it’s my obsession with the ’70s. Whatever it is, there’s nothing quite like a floor-skimming dress to start the day. Here’s what I wore this past week to the Alvin Valley trunk show, where I scored the most incredible pair of high-waisted black cigarette pants, something I’ve been searching for since I tossed out the ones I scored at Naf Naf in Paris more than 14 years ago. Why, oh why, did I ever edit those out of my life? I’ve been lamenting them since we parted ways in college. That’s why I know these latest trousers are a solid investment. And you’ll most likely find them, alongside my slew of maxi dresses inside my closet when I’m well into my 90s.
