Edit - the second after I published this I just relaized that on the park, where I was 'sun bathing', everyone else there (well every other girl) was wearing sandals/flip flops with a floral maxi-dress. And I really have the urge to get one, not because everyone else is wearing them but because, 1 - they are floor length, very graceful and covers up my horrible, pale legs. 2 - they are probably quite cool as they don't stick to your skin. 3 - they look amazing.
Can short people pull off maxi's ? X
