Maxi Dress

Hello everyone,

One of my favorite fashion pieces is the maxi dress. I believe that it’s an easiest way to create elegant and fashionable look without looking overdone or under-dressed.

Have a beautiful day



  • Same here! I’m actually wearing one today b/c I knew how hot it was going to be here in D.C. I dressed it up with a jean jacket and lots of bangles and of course gladiator sandals! Love the look!

  • Wow beautiful dress! I love that it’s black and white, it makes it so classy looking! I feel like it would be well-suited for a dinner cruise, haha! 🙂


    • elena

      Thanks Julia! You are right, it will be perfect for the cruise- I should tell it to my husband:)

  • Maxi dresses are my all-time favorites, and they work year-round! And they are great on days when you didn’t feel like shaving your legs 😉

    I love the little slit/cut-out in yours (I don’t know the technically/fashion term)!

    • elena

      Ha Ha, true:)!

      Thank you very much Necole!!!!

  • Elena another stunning illustration. You look sooo beautiful. The maxi dress is awesome and goes so well with the clutch. The photos and the locations are wonderful. The black and white pic with the car is my fav but they are all great. I think we both wear the same nail color polish ha ha.


    • elena

      Ohhh thank you so much my dear!!! And I think you are right about the nail polish- are you wearing the one from your last post? We have an amazing taste:)

  • Kat

    I LOVE your illustrations! (I’m totally jealous!) Thanks for commenting on my IFB group. 🙂

    • elena

      Thank you so much Kat for your lovely comment! Don’t be jealous- you are talented!

  • I love it! I’m actually just heading out now to pick up a maxi dress I brought in to shorten (maxi dresses aren’t buyer friendly for shorties like me lol). Can’t wait to wear it since it’s been so hot here and they’re so comfortable to wear 🙂 I love your dress !!
