Vest: Old Navy
Dress: Urban Vibe
Shoes: Vince Camuto
I really like the color and the fun skirt on this dress, but I'm just not fond of the length or the fact that it is pilling already. (So happy I only paid $7 for it, I would have hated myself if I had paid full price and had that happen!) I'm shorter than most high school girls (and most Junior high girls!) but every time I try on clothes at shops that cater to that age group, the dresses and skirts are always sooo short, even on me. I can't even imagine how short they are on taller girls, I had a hard enough time just keeping my bum covered today. (The super flippy skirt doesn't help.) I think I'll sew in another layer underneath for some length, maybe some lace?
On the other hand, the husband did like this dress! He said the dress looked very "Mad Men" , but I've noticed that he likes it best when I wear simple, clean line dresses. He's so sweet, he sat through "What Not to Wear" last night and didn't even smirk when I said I really liked that girl's fuzzy white vest and would wear it over a leather jacket. (And hey, surprise, surprise, guess what happened? Oh yeah, a leather jacket was rocked under the crazy vest.)
