Style: The sisterhood of the travelling dress

Girls, listen up. I have discovered a wonder dress! Remember The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie? About four friends who want to stay connected as they all go their different ways for the summer, and find this magical pair of jeans that they share? Those four girls had all totally different body types, yet the pair of pants fit each one perfectly. Magic!

And I, my friends, have discovered the dress equivalent. It is aptly called the Miracle Maxi Dress, and this time, this is no false advertising.

I have a love-hate relationship with maxi dresses. I love them, but usually not on me. Most of them have the tendency to make me look/feel frumpy, pregnant or stumpy. I'm 5'6", but in most I look way shorter and sort of squished together.
But this dress? Oh, it is magical! If you read the reviews on the ModCloth website (which are all glowing!) you can see that this dress seems to fit and flatter every body type: pear-shaped, tall, short, curvy, lean... whatever size you are, it will look good on you.   

It also comes in a creamy white/black version, which I am now extremely tempted to order as well. 
Spring is almost here, can't wait to start wearing this beauty out!

Dress: ModCloth; flats: OldNavy; belt: ModCloth (from this dress); jacket: American Eagle (last year, this year's here); gumboots: Dunlop; scarf: handmade by my daughter; hat: gift

Happy Friday!

Linking up with Lena B and Tara today.

Love, Miriam

P.S. I'm not getting paid for this review, this is 100% my opinion. But I think I should. ModCloth, if you are listening, what do you think? Gimme free clothes? ;-)

    1. Thank you :-) She is a Kuvasz, a Hungarian sheepdog, immensely protective and loving. Plus the dirt just falls off her, which is priceless for our muddy winters.

  3. Looks like a brilliant discovery to me!! I have that same magical feeling with a few scarves...although I guess that's a bit different :) Your furry friend is beautiful, what kind of dog is it?

  4. I'm on the shorter side, and I've had the same feeling, that the maxi dress style makes me look shorter than I am, so I haven't really worn any, but I think that you do look really great in this dress!

  5. I can not say I have ever seen a maxi dress that did not have spaghetti or tank straps! I might need this one...

  7. I love the colors!! It looks so great on you. ModCloth definitely needs to tune in and send you some fun clothes to model...starting with the black and white version. :)

    I also love your newsboy cap. I'm a fan of the hats.

    1. Haha yes, I agree! There is a blogger I adore, Elizabeth from Delighfully Tacky, and she's rocking that black and white one. That's where I got the inspiration - check her out: http://www.delightfully-tacky.com/2014/02/remix-archives-zig-zag-maxi.html

  9. I have also not gotten on the maxi dress trend because I feel like it looks frumpy but that really does look nice on you. Love the green scarf!

    1. My stepdaughter hand-crocheted the scarf for me for my birthday, so it is extra-special.
      Seriously, this dress defies the usual limitations of the average maxi. I don't know how they've done it, but it's comfy and flattering! Win-win. You should read the reviews, everybody raves about it! All clothes should be like that.
