I've worn this dress a few times without feeling like it was too short, but today, for whatever reason, I just decided that it was. Too short, I mean. So I popped the white eyelet skirt under it and voilà! Instant length. I'm thinking that this trick works best with full skirts because I'm hard-pressed to think of how it might be successfully executed with something like a pencil skirt or a mini. Feel free to prove me wrong, though!
For those of you who were bummed that my particular skirt is sold out on the Modcloth site, I have a surprise for you: CLICK HERE. This is literally THE EXACT SAME SKIRT being sold on Alloy aka The Poor Man's Delias. And for half the price of what I paid! Lucky, lucky you! I admit that I'm a little peeved that I paid $60 for mine when I could've gotten it for $29.90, but eh. Now I know that Modcloth hikes up their prices like no other and will have to shop around the next time my mouse-clickin' finger's feeling itchy over there. YOU'RE WELCOME. Haha...
For reference, I ordered a size Medium and it fits wonderfully. I have a 28" waist.
