I've noticed that there seems to be a trend for super-short dresses these days. Sure, there is the occasional midi-dress around, but generally, dresses are way shorter than I want them to be. (Especially those from UK stores like Asos, Topshop, etc. I'm imagining the UK as a land where girls generally go around wearing inappropriately short dresses...) I don't like short dresses, because I am (a) conservative, (b) nearing 30, and (c) in a professional job.
Most of the dresses I own would be perfect if they were an inch or two longer. Maybe the problem is that I'm too tall. I've never really considered myself to be tall (I'm the shortest person in my family!), but I am apparently above the average height for women in Australia.
Anyway, for now I guess I'll have to stick with buying dresses that are cute but slightly short, and googling "how to make dresses look longer" (I'm thinking that wearing a tulle petticoat slightly longer than my dress might help).
This is yet another dress from Cue. Yes, I have now bought 5 dresses there in the past month or so... These are the problems I face in Spring, when all the clothes are beautiful, and the weather is warm enough to wear nice dresses again!
These sequined flat shoes are ones that I usually wear when walking to and from work, rather than as part of my outfit during the day. They've served me well - I've had them for years - but they're really starting to stretch and I'll probably need to replace them soon.
