Looking for the dress

That I will wear for our anniversary drinks, or more like the the legs that would go with any dress of this style. I am a little on the short side. But then Nicole Richie pulls it off. Maybe it's because she has such a teeny frame. Even if I can find one to suit me I will need it taken up about a million inches so its not dragging in the red dust of the city in Marrakech. I have until Monday to search. Are you on a quest to find an item perfect for this Summer? Maybe we can point each other in the right directions.

i'm looking for a summer ball dress. i'm definitely a maxi girl...but for the very reason that i am tall and like to wear flats so i don't tower over my husband! i am tempted by a couple i've seen on the wallis website...not somewhere i'd normally buy from but i love the beautiful cloud dress from the yasmin le bon range. and there's 20% off today and tomorrow : ) good luck with your search! xX

Wish you could wait until you get to Marrakesh...that's what I'd suggest. I saw some OK ones in a J Crew catalogue but not cool enough. There are some via Gudrun Sjoden website...but 'tis too late to order...I'd put in the link but don't want to mess up your feed. (I never know.)

Good luck!

DVF has some amazing maxi dresses right now and so does Zara. Don't feel bad about having to heam the maxi we all do. I'm 5'1 just make sure you have your shoes all picked out before you do so :-) Good Luck!

Oooh, loving those options. If only it was summer here in Oz as my winter attire of long jumpers and ugg boots just doesn't seem to cut the mustard!

I'm afraid I can't pull off the maxi, but they are so pretty. I am looking for a great pair of sandles that I can wear to work as well as out and about. Good luck on your search.

Beautiful dress, I never thought about the fact Nicole is able to wear it well, perhaps I should try one. I always figured because I am not 6' and model like it wouldn't work...There is one from Whitehouse/Black Market that is stunning :)

hmm,gorgeous. can I steal your dress?.

I'm also very short and small frame and when I buy long dresses like this one, I invariably have to fix them!.
