Denim mini dress - one fashion step too far?

Today I bought a denim shirt dress from River Island - I think it looks ok but I have a feeling that actually I have no sense of style and will look ridiculous.

Would you wear such an item?

I'm 29 and a size 12 (ish) in case that makes a difference!

If I was 29 and a 12, yes, but I'm not envy

how short? straight or a-line? what kind of denim
how will you wear it?
there's always a slight danger of looking a bit daisy duke in a denim outfit....

I've got a short denim dress by Lover (Australian label but i think available on netaporter here) ... I"M NEARLY 37!!!!! and a 10-12. And it was a good buy, very versatile, looks as good over l/s tee and leggings as over bare legs and arms. How much did you pay? If not too ££££ then you can afford to keep it and just wear it on little outings until you get your head around it. Then you buy the DKNY version grin grin grin grin

i have one similar to this

but it zips up and is darker denim

i wear it with biker boots usually

i am a size 8 and closer to 43

if it suits you and you feel good in it, why not?

i have a pic of me wearing it, but you can only see the top half, so no point in linking

That one's lovely Lou - the one I bought has longer sleeves but is a similar length. I'm 5'9" so it's fairly bottom skimming!

I was going to wear it with tights and boots but that won't help the Daisy Duke look...

i'm 5ft 7 and mine is pretty short too

i am sure it looks lovely, post a pic of you in it

I have one from Next, but I'm only 5ft so it's not that short! They are popular at the moment. I'm sure yours looks fine!
Like yours as well Lou
