That Yellow Dress

While I've never been one to follow trends conscientiously I've lately found myself in swing with a few of them. Namely dresses. Namely long maxi dresses. I recently got a dress off of eBay because of this. It's a yellow 70s dress that I got because it reminded me of a beautiful yellow pleated dress I saw on one or two of the blogs I frequent but can't find any more. It was so lovely. The closest I can get to it are these dresses, that while lovely in their own right, don't have that same sort of fragility that one had.

But I'm also just loving long dresses in general. Like maxi, full length. Good maxi dresses are hard to find at the moment unless you're looking in vintage stores and such. That's why I feel like mine was such a find. I'll post pictures when I get it in the mail.
