I have long been skeptical of maxi dresses, and have eschewed the trend until a few weeks ago when I visited Chicago. Under the influence of Emily (sartoriography) and--ahem--a lunchtime glass of wine, I was persuaded to buy this dress at H&M. She reminded me that a different Emily (the other emily) owns and rocks the same dress (see here, here, here). How many Emilys need to tell you a $15 dress looks good before you take the plunge? (For me, evidently, two). And while I really like the look of this dress, I can't say I'm completely converted yet, if only because I feel like I can't walk in it yet. It feels like a constraining mermaid tail at times and I spent most of the day hiking it up so I could walk and bicycle better. But maybe there is a third Emily out there willing to teach me how to walk in a long dress, and I'll finally be sold?
