The product description for this ModCloth maxi dress begins as follows: “‘Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it,’ the great Michelangelo once said.

I love this otherworldy-seeming Lison Long Flounce Dress from Alice + Olivia, because basically I’m a whore for ruffle sleeves. But also! Doesn’t it look so elvish and “Lord of the Rings”-y?
