Layered Top Maxi dress

When everybody else is obsessing about the high and low maxi skirt (FIY: I was too until I tried the thing and decided it was not for me), I find myself intrigued with a different kind of maxi: the layered top maxi dress.
If you do not know what I am talking about, take a look at this pic below.

In fact, this picture and SJP are solely responsible for my interest now turn into slight obsession of this dress. I find the layered top to be somehow refreshing, different from what is out there at the moment. Plus, it is a kind of top that works great with ladies without a big bust. And even though I have been blessed in that department, I am still liking the romantic effect of the top. Actually I own a jumpsuit with a layered top and I really like the fluidity of it. I am not sure I will find a layered top maxi that is floor length in Japan (it is very hard to find floor length maxi dresses or skirts here because Japanese ladies tend to be on a shorter side) but I am willing to try. These below are also interesting picks:

I will go on the hunt. It is bargain time everywhere you turn in Japan so I may get lucky! As much as I like printed dresses, I think for this style, I will stick to monotone type in a vibrant color like green, yellow (so bias towards yellow this summer) or even red. Wish me luck!
