I just received this polka dot dress in the mail today and I was so excited that I just had to wear it right away!! jeje. The only problem was that I realized it was too short for my taste... but not to worry! There is nothing that my white skirt can't fix, so I just added it under the polka dot dress and voila!! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!! the eyelet border that peeks through the bottom makes the outfit extra cute!!

I received a whole lot of compliments today, so I guess I must have done something right :)

What do you do when a skirt or dress is just too short? Any tips?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this purple purse:

  1. I do what you did- stick another skirt underneath! I guess you could do the same with jeans, perhaps belting it to bring up the dress length a bit. You look so cute in this outfit!

  2. I'm like you - I love color! I like neutrals on others, but when I try them, I feel so lacking.

    Your look is really great, I like that you included colors, but kept them subdued so they are practically neutral.

  5. Just looooove this outfit. The shoes and purse are so cool and give it an elegant look. The lace peeking out of the bottom gives it the right girly touch. I dont blame everyone giving you so many compliments. This outfit is enough to turn heads... besides that you look so beautiful with your hair and makeup.

  6. Great idea - If it is too short for me I tend to wear either leggings, jeans or shorts underneath it - ive never thought of wearing another skirt - may have to try it sometime - Thanks for the ideas Marie :D
