And a straight dress at that.
|Wearing a dress!|
Not just a dress, but oh dear, its way above my knee. I felt a little awkward because I had not realised just how short it is when I tried it on the first time. But, I went with it instead of whipping it off as I initially felt like doing. Wearing tights makes me feel a little less naked.

Looking at the pattern in this dress, I do wish the light bit had been across the tummy instead of above and below it. Next time I wear this dress, I do intend wearing something bright with it ... maybe my red blazer.
I had tried a few different belts but I did not like how it caused the dress to bulk over my hips. I even tried the belts over the dress and cardigan. I am considering having the dress altered to be a little more fitted, but not skin tight, just too give it a little more shape.
I choose silver accessories. The necklace cost me all of about R15- and I think I picked it up at Legit. Its the first time I've worn it despite having it for at least 3 months. I really like the cut out design of it, it reminds me a little of the necklace that Schatz bought me for Christmas. I added three bangles, which did drive me a little batty by the end of the day because they clunked it a lot ... lol.
Considering all the aspects, I quite liked this look and don't think the legs looked too bad. A previous comment by Annette had me thinking about why I wear most of my skirts at the length I do and the reason goes way back to around 1997 when a lady I loved and respected very much said that women should not wear their skirts above their knees because no one has pretty knees. I think that has stuck with me and whenever I see my knees I wonder if they're the ugliest on the planet.
That's all for now folks ... thanks for visiting, reading and leaving me your thoughts.
