hi everyone - i was doing one of these humm and haws today as i pondered the fate of this gap t-shirt maxi dress. on the US site, they have it in the petite version. sadly the canadian e-comm site did not, so i took a chance when they had their 30% off sale and got the XS. it ended up being 45$ after the discount.
i love the look of a maxi dress. however, i'm cognizant that: 1. my style hasn't been what you call bohemian; 2. i am petite and therefore, the risk with a maxi dress is that i may basically end up sweeping the floors with them so i am very reluctant to buy them online without a safety net of being able to return it. this is it, ladies and gents. i am indeed going to be cleaning people's floors with this dress for freeeeee if i keep it like this, or if i don't hem it.
i do have to say that the jersey material is SO soft. and the colour is amazing. belted, i get the few inches cheat, but i can't say that this is the structured look i'm comfortable with. thinking outside the box, though, is this something i could pull off? i'm still on the fence with this one.
so, what do you think dear readers? yay or nay?
