There are some things a girl who's under 5'3" can't wear. Or so I thought. Meet the cutest little long dress out there: the Catalina Petite Maxi Dress ($148) from Plenty by Tracy Reese, available only online at Anthropologie. Stretching just 54" from its shoulders, the vertical-striped dress dusts the floor at just the right length, and features elongating lines—making this small girl look just a bit taller. I never knew I could wear a maxi, without it "wearing" me. An added enticement? Today, the store is shipping all orders for free.
