More Flowers

A few weeks back, i found this dress and it wasn't my size but i grabbed it anyway because i love the vibrant colors on it. When i took it home, it turns out, my mom had seen the exact same dress and almost got it for me but did not because it was a few sizes too big. Funny. I figured, i'd give the dress a shot in its unaltered state because i usually cut and hem my longer dresses( ahem, i have an affinity for shorter lengths). Also, the floral collection in my closet keeps expanding...








Dress-Thrifted, Shoes-Hypnotic

Typically I like to hem most of my pieces but that length works with those shoes...I think it's all in the shoes...Wear some unexpected jazzy shoes and the length is cool. If you wear average shoes, then shorten it to show of legs...

Maybe when you get tired of that length, you can shorten it and rock a leather bomber and boots with it for the fall?

That's a great thrift though!
