The Mini Minidress

Remember when I posted about a turquoise green ruffly dress that I thrifted? And I asked you if I should turn it into a minidress or a blouse, because the length was incredibly unflattering??? I followed everyone's advice and made it a minidress.

A very mini minidress. Perhaps too mini. As in, "Holy-crap-I-can't-wear-this-without-tights-for-fear-of-indecent-exposure" mini. There are three distinct options i can follow: Wear dress with tights, turn dress into blouse or give away dress to skanky ho.

Just kidding!

It looks great! I definitely overhem my dresses sometimes when I alter them. I would suggest wearing it with leggings, tights or layering a skirt or slip underneath.

Dot said...

I really like it! And I don't think it's too short either, but then again I don't know how where your legs end.

Hannah Bee said...

It most certainly is not too short, you just have to take special care in sitting/bending. Looks lovely!

Okay, Isabel wrote some stuff that might have offended some of the readers. But do you honestly think that getting even with her by calling her an “imbecilic, friendless thrift store diva who put [her] face and [her] taste out there in order to get heaps of accolades and adoration from strangers” is the best way to express your opinion about her? From what I have read, I do agree that Isabel had written ignorant and biased opinions about certain people. But you, Leslie, are not much different from Isabel. Calling her a “fucking idiot” and telling her that she is “being stupid AND looking like shit” is just as ignorant and biased as Isabel’s view on poor/fat people/Peter Gabriel etc.
