queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

So I finally got around to shortening this thrifted dress, and now I’m stuck. There’s just something weird about the sleeves that I don’t know how to fix – they look kind of frumpy and dated at their current length, but if I shortened them they might look too prissy. I considered removing them completely, but then it would just remind me too much of that marc by marc jacobs dress from a couple seasons ago (see below), and I can’t decide if that’s good or bad. I’ve pretty much come to a dead stop. Any ideas?

i don't see the problem with the similarity between the two dresses, in fact, it's the first thing i thought of when i saw this one!

What an amazing find. I think the sleeves look fine, but maybe shortening them a little wouldn't look too prissy.
