Take One, Pass It On Item: black belt from last Friday (not that you can see it!)
I bought this dress in January, and immediately tore off the tags, and it has hung in my closet for over a month, not being worn. I'm pretty sure this was a wrong decision for me to purchase. In my defense, I was distracted by the polka dots and didn't realize that this "dress" is a super awkward length for me. I'm sure on a regular person, it is an appropriate length (evidence). On me, it is too short to wear as a dress, even with tights, but it is just a little bit too long to be a shirt. I'm not really a leggings person, so that's a no-go as well.
The outfit above is my attempt at styling this difficult item, and I am not 100% sold on this look. Plus, I think I would get tired of wearing it over all of my different colored pencil skirts. Do any of you have ideas for how I can make this work? Right now, my best idea is to chop a couple of inches off the bottom, but there's a decent chance I would just ruin it. Fashion blogger SOS!
