calivintage 's Thoughts:

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?

this is a great look. commanding collar! in answer to your question, i would add a brown or maroon leather mini skirt which could be worn underneath the tunic, or the tunic could be tucked in ... that would look great with a high waisted skirt!

congrats!!! I think the dress looks awesome. it makes your legs seem like they stretch forever. But I understand you are a demure, ladylike person. I agree with all the slip/layering skirt ideas posed below! I'm sure you'll find an amazing solution :)

this is adorable. when i have things that are too short, i'll put a cute slip (maybe with some lace detailing) underneath to cover myself. but i'm having the same issue; i have to figure out WHAT i'm going to wear!

Wonderful outfit. Fur collar is fab. Congrats on chictopia 10! Sometimes I wear a dress or a tunic with a pretty hem under dangerously short things! Occassionally works. Still you look fab so maybe leave it as a standing up or leaning outfit. He he!

I knew you would win lady!! congrats. you could try a slip with the lace peeking out. It would nab you another inch or two maybe. also... perhaps layer a really long cardigan, or even better, a long vest over it that way you would see the detail of the front yet cover up some thigh...

Congrats on winning! Looking forward to your posts while you are there. I have a tunic with the same problem. Things I have experimented with... - Very opaque tights or leggings underneath - A skirt either underneath or over with the tunic tucked in - Sometimes I completely give up and just wear jeans underneath. Which could possibly work if you could find some colored jeans?
