On days when I can’t decide what “outfit” to put together, my maxi dress always come to the rescue! It’s cute, chic, comfy, not to mention easy and efficient! Throw it on and you instantly look darling (plus if you don’t feel like shaving, who would know? :)

Stacey Bendt Eisner, designer and founder of Alice + Olivia is no stranger to girlie, flowy pleats!  There’s something about the flowy-elegance meet relaxed-sophistication of this green pleated maxi dress that makes me feel like a princess every time I put it on. Definitely a favorite of mine in 2011 and will for sure be a repeat this summer….
