The Lust List: Resort Maxi Dresses

I know it makes me rather bitter to open my March fashion magazines to find bright, cheery “resort” clothing strewn all over the pages while I’m freezing my tooshy off and avoiding black ice on the blustery walk to the metro. Which is why I, again, recommend you get on and buy tickets to someplace warm, someplace with fruity drinks decorated with little umbrellas, ASAP. With that, I hope to inspire you by continuing our foray into resort wear.

Originally from Florida, the magazines never bothered me too terribly much until last year. Now, as I said in yesterday’s post, I am cold, tired, pale, and rather bitter. But, because the Bitches like to see the glass as half full, let’s think positive: Spring is just around the corner, and you can find damn cheap vacations available on the Internet (double thanks to Tim Berners-Lee and the recession).

Winter tropical vacations bring up a whole other quandary: the pale, pudgy, hairy (exercising and shaving are difficult tasks in winter, no?) body you (and I) will be putting into a swimsuit. (And, while I did run around the Capitol in my skivvies last weekend, that was for charity, and I was inebriated.)

The solution? Cover-ups. They’re fun—love the happy bright prints—and, frankly, they’re a necessity. These maxi dresses not only cover your pale legs but they are surprisingly sexy and elongating on all sizes (even shorties like me!). Keeping with yesterday’s tribal boho theme, I’ve picked maxi dresses with a variety of prints and price points for your spring vacation to the tropics …

  1. The last dress on your list was featured in the Express today! I can’t find the octopus ring they paired with it on South Moon Under’s website though…

  2. I don’t even understand how I stopped up here, but I believed this put up was once good. I don’t recognize who you’re but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already. Cheers!
