first off, omg you guys! i got selected as one of the winners of the chictopia 10 contest. i am honored to have been chosen to be part of such a special group of girls and i am very excited to meet all of you who will be attending this year. thank you so much to the awesome community here at chictopia!
second, i am now in the middle of planning out which pieces to bring with me while i’m in new york for fashion week. i know it’s going to be freezing cold, so i will be sure to bring plenty of coats and weather appropriate shoes for when i’m walking around, but what about party outfits? i recently ordered this awesome “mini dress” from gilt groupe, but once it arrived, i discovered that it is clearly not a dress. i’m 5’5" and this baby is barely covering my lady bits. i styled it up the way i would want to wear it if it were but a few inches longer, so i ask you: what are your suggestions for how to keep the same basic concept of this look, but without the dangerously short hemline?
