Stripes / Metallics

by - Thursday, April 17, 2014

I heart this striped dress, even though it can look like a shapeless muumuu from certain angles, or as my DH teasingly calls it, my pregnancy dress (nope, no bun in the oven). I prefer to wear this dress belted, but that shortens the length, so I usually end up wearing flats. For today's look, I wanted to wear low heels, so that meant letting the dress hang naturally for maximum coverage (which on second thought seems laughable because the dress is kinda short to begin with). Regardless, it's what I felt most comfortable in, so bring on the pregnancy rumors.

  1. Cute dress. I just don't understand why retailers make dresses that are so short. Why not just have them made longer so we won't have to have the headaches of having to wear flats or give up heels? I tried on a lace/embroidered dress today that would have been perfect for spring/summer, and it was beautiful but 3 inches too short. What a shame!

    1. I think it's a lose-lose situation for retailers. Someone my size but shorter might find the dress length to be perfect, whereas someone taller will think it's indecently short. I hope J.Crew starts making all their dresses in petite/regular/tall sizing! Unfortunately my Jules dress only came in one length.

      Bummer about your lace/embroidered dress. I don't know what stores you've been searching at, but I've seen some pretty options at LOFT this season!

    2. Thanks! I did see the pretty colors at LOFT and Ann Taylor. Love all their blush and chambray theme/color.


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
