let me start off by saying i love this dress. i love the color, i love the fabric and i love the swoop of the neck line. what i don't love is something that is so easily fixable – yet i just haven't done it. it's the length. i rarely wear this dress all because it's about 12 inches too long. it hangs right at that thickest part of my calf area...the part that when it gets cut off, i look like i just might have cankles. well, i realized that it's super easy to do a temporary fix for my issues. a little pulling, a little tucking, and some strategic belt placement, and presto chango! a new dress.
blazer ~ target
belt ~ thrifted

yes, i will be taking this, along with about six other dresses, to be hemmed soon. after all, what is a dress when it's just sitting in your closet unworn??? lonely. so lonely.
