There are the dresses that you buy for certain occasions, and then there are the dresses that you just buy because you love them to a point of obsession. Oh, and because they work for almost every situation. That's this one, without a doubt.

It's hard to find a maxi dress that maintains a certain level of elegance while resisting prom, pageant, or red carpet theatrics. But everything that Aussie label Misha puts out is so perfectly crafted, simultaneously understated and elevated, and always with a hint (or hefty dose) of drama.
