Trend: Maxi Dresses

shame about the prices!!!

You're welcome soferet!

Kav-z: The one from La Redoute is only £12.50, and the one from New Look, which I'm just going to have to buy, is £28. I'm sure if you shop around you'll find something. I reckon the only reason the Topshop dress costs £150, is cos it's from the Kate Moss collection!

Ohhh i love maxi dresses, they r such a must for the summer... i was jus browsing the new look website today and fell in love with the paisley dress... seeing it on ur blog makes me want it more... i bought a few maxi dresses from www.asos.com end of last yr for Eid, and got lots of compliments. Also Utam london has this amazing silk maxi dress... and the prices r not too bad either... :)

Ali,

What was it like ordering from ASOS? Was the delivery quick, and was the quality good? Also where is Utam?

ali said...

ordering from ASOS wasnt bad at all. I actually ordered with them in a hurry for my hubby's birthday, and since i had left my outfit til the last minute, i had to order with the next day delivery which was on time, since then when ever i order from them there stuff is on time... As for the quality, its not bad.... Best thing is they send 2 chocolates and a magazine with the order.... :)

I bought a dress from TKMax a few months ago which was from Uttam london and when saw their website they had some really nice dresses but i just checked it again i think they've changed it and you need to register in order to check the website :)

I like the first one. Purple and yellow? That would let me carry my yellow patent leather rocker clutch and not be too tough. Add a black pashmina and a tailored empire waist open abaya (I suggest every girl gets one of these made---they are so USEFUL---- the look is a front open abaya that slips on over top, but it has a slit from the ribcage down so you can wear long dresses and skirts with it. Better coverage than a cardi, but you don't give up your skirt. I think the style originated in Salalah, Oman, where the women are famous for their layered Arabic-flamenco style skirts (which is actually where flamenco and the words Al Hamra come from in Spanish culture---the Arabs were there). Oh I love the girls from Salalah. They taught me about how there is to be no race and tribe in Islam, and how beauty and modesty are both important to Allah SWT. Everyone should visit Salalah once, during Monsoon season, to experience it. After Mecca and Medina, of course, LOL. Insha'Allah. Sorry for taking all your comment room Hayah. If you do go to Oman though, I suggest bying walking shoes in the form of durable flip flops because women there don't buy walking shoes---everything has a heel on it and it is too hot for flats and runners. I only brought two pairs, and I wore both out navigating Oman's rocky terrain.
