Is it just me, or has anyone noticed that hemlines have been alarmingly short in recent days? That girl up there, she is beautiful, but whoever told her she was wearing a dress was punking her.
I think that these teeny-tiny short dresses are on their way out, and the "midi dress" or "midi skirt" is making a roaring comeback.
And that makes me sad.
It makes me sad because never...ever, in my memory...has there been a better selection of beautiful tunic-style tops as we have seen in the era of the Teeny Tiny Dress.
Still. Younger gals, here is a piece of advice from someone who, though she is almost 50, still has some fashion chops: if you have to wonder if it is a dress or a top...it is a top. If it could kind of, sort of be either one...it is a top.
That dress up there? Most. Gorgeous. Shirt. Ever.
So, because I'd do anything for you, I dug around in my closet for the tops I have that were merchandised to me as dresses...
...and if this isn't proof that this dress is a shirt, I can't help you. And I can't ever take myself seriously when I shoot these blog posts.
It's going to get worse, people, so if you are going to bail on me, do it now.
This little number is from Modcloth.com I call it my hippie dress, only it could never be a dress because I can't praise the Lord in it.
This dress/shirt is a design by Jeanne Oliver, and is no longer available.
(Jeanne...this is me...begging you to design more dresses. Because I need more shirts.)
Last but not least, I chose a dress that I actually do wear as a dress. Just to keep you confused.
But no, really. I wear it as a dress. I only want you to open your closet and expand your horizons.
Just don't wear a ball gown as a top.
