Peach and Red

This dress was a recent find from the Buffalo Exchange.  The day I bought this dress, there were several cute dresses in my size, which was lucky!  The floor must have just been replenished with stock before I arrived.  I saw the exact same dress in my size in a dark green, but opted for this peach color instead.  I also saw this dress in my size and still have a bit of nonbuyer's remorse for not purchasing it. Oh well, it happens.

My dress is ankle length without tucking it into a belt.  I thought about hemming it, but I think I'll leave it as it so I'll have the option of wearing it both ways.  As a short, petite gal, my first instinct is to always hem an item, but sometimes, it's okay to have a bit more length in dresses or skirts.

I like it both long and short. I never would have thought to temporarily shorten a dress by tucking it into a belt. I want to try it with one of my maxis!

Thanks lady!  I love wide stretchy belts because they are so great for adjusting lengths of skirts and dresses. Definitely give it a try!

Oh my god, go back for the striped dress immediately!! Now! Hurry!
(not that the peach polka dots aren't adorable, just that I happen to be in love with the striped one, hence my own striped dress quest)
