This dress is short. Like, "acceptable to wear in public but just barely" short. Like, "I really shouldn't have worn this to work even though my bosses are casual" short. Like "even though my boss was all 'you look like a cute, cheery gogo dancer today' I should have maybe worn tights" short. I love this dress too much to listen to common sense, though, so I spent most of the day pulling it down in an insecure manner. I mean, with tights I feel perfectly comfortable with the length, so hopefully once it chills up outside this dress will be getting a lot more use!
