fifthofjuly 's thoughts:

I realized a few days ago that I hardly wear dresses.

Now there could be many reasons for this. For instance the need for mobility when making models in school, or not wanting to get nice clothes coated with pink foam particles that refuse to come off until you throw them into the washing machine. But I think in the end it boils down to my short stature. Nearly every dress is way too long for me! And I’m not one to wear long dresses because I’m always certain they’ll make me look shorter than I am (not to say they actually do; I’d have to test that out to be sure).

So I leave you with a photo of me in a skirt-dress of sorts. My mommy’s skirt worn as a dress. Yep, that works for me. :)

I think that's a good idea to use a skirt as a dress.And it actually look good on you. You should wear dresses more often
fifthofjuly

Yes it makes great sense when you're as vertically challenged as I am. :) I'd wear them more often if only they'd fit!
