Is this dress too short for me? opinions appreciated!
I bought a dress a while ago & the last time I wore it, a stranger called me a whore, she was pretty aggressive about it, the bar staff had to come over and tell her to shush. I'm fine with that now, I don't get my self worth from how demure and pure other people think I am and she was probably just having a bad day.
But I've had a look at it and I do wonder if it actually looks good as it should or if it just looks like a long t shirt. I sometimes see people wearing dresses and think, it would look great if it was just a bit longer- thinking in terms of proportions if you get what I mean....
If I didn't enjoy putting together outfits that look nice, I would go out with it looking silly by the way, it really is just for me I'm asking.
so if I post a picture or two could you possibly tell me what you think? I don't know if this is all horribly self obsessed or just not 'done' so will hold off until someone tells me it's okay
(my friends are not honest enough and my mum, who's my go to 'AIBU person', thinks anything above knee length is asking for it!)
I was expecting something much shorter. The length looks fine to me but its better with the tights on account of it being shorter in the middle. I wonder if it rode up while you were sitting in the bar and left your pants on display.
on a separate point, I did see a woman yesterday in a short dress (nice, striped but certainly quite short and sort of flared) anyway she had a rucksack and this can sort of pull the dress, I kept thinking if she trips, bends over the dress will ride right up to reveal her knickers.....
she had bare legs too but even with nude tights you have to be really careful so you don't show everyone an unintended flash view.
