So you know how I like to late-night Amazon shop for clothes and sometimes it’s a gamble. Many times I take a chance on a $20 something and many times it turns out to not even be worth the free shipping. But this time — I’ve found another winner! This maxi dress is THE best for summer! But you have to get this exact one, and maybe even down to the color. So on Amazon, this is why it gets confusing because a lot of different vendors will use the same model photo but it will be a different product. I ordered this dress from two different vendors — one in this grey and one in black. There was a $5 difference in them but the dress looked so similar even though the photos were different, so I thought let’s just see what the difference is. The black dress is a more jersey feel, which oddly enough isn’t as flattering as this grey one.* (UPDATED OPINION! SEE BELOW!)  This grey maxi dress I’m wearing is a thicker fabric, with a tiny bit of stretch, but it keeps its shape and more importantly — doesn’t stick to my body. The grey one is my favorite by far!

I also love that this dress has movement, it gives it such a rich feel. But ya’ll — it’s $23. THE BEST. You can find this exact dress here!

Quick side note: I ordered this in the 11 – dark grey. I do not know if any other color is the same material as this one. I might order another color just to see because I love this dress so much! But if you do and you find out, let me know in the comments!

As far as sizing of this maxi dress goes, I’m in the medium and I feel like it’s a pretty generous fit. If you’re petite, size down one or expect a looser fit! The length hits me about at my ankles without heels on and obviously with heels a bit above them. It is not floor length on me, which I actually like because sometimes maxi dresses can get too long. I am 5’9″ and a pretty standard size 8 /medium if that helps you decide what it will look like on you! Find the dress here!

*UPDATED: I LOVE the black dress just as much as the grey! Maybe more?? I don’t know, that’s like picking a favorite child. Impossible! I still stand by that it’s not *as* flattering but just because it shows a little bit more of my tummy than the grey dress. But who cares right? I don’t. It’s soft, it’s comfortable, it’s perfect. You can see my post on the black dress here!

I know you’re going to ask, so I’ll just tell you! I’m not wearing Spanx or a slip under here, just regular undies! The black one I would need to wear Spanx. Lame.

  1. Long time reader, first time commenter! You are probably the only blogger I follow where I actually will purchase the clothes you post about.

Hope this dress is also a keeper! 🙂

  3. DONE. Just ordered. I literally came here today hoping you’d have some ideas for good casual summer weekend dresses AND YOU DID. Thank you!

  4. OK, I bought this dress in Navy and love it! I’m 5’2″ and it juuuuust barely touches the ground, so I can wear with flats or wedges. I already ordered one in black as well. Thanks for the recommendation! (Also…why is late-night Amazon-ing so fun?!)
