In the summer one of my favorite styles is the maxi dress. An easy, light go to it looks good in almost any style and has the ability to be dressed up or down. No matter what trends are faring well in the season, a simple maxi in the summer heat, never lets you down. I love a fun color block dress so for a day strolling the East Village I went to one of my oldies, and must admit, I was surprised that it still fit. An uncharacteristically Lacoste brightly colored color block dress, which I bought on Ebay in 2007. I’ve held onto it all this time, like many pieces I have that are in the archive, though not on the surface. Like those, I have distinct memories that go along with wearing that dress, and yet wearing it now, it feels brand new, just like me.
