Dress: The Kissing Tree Vintage; Vest: Thrifted; Shoes: tuto

This is Norwegian me (5'8"...ish) trying to pull off a petite dress; hence the title. What you see before you is the manifestation of years of coveting a lesser height without much success, clearly, through the vessel that is reclaimed/re-adjusted vintage. It's borderline (in propriety) at best, but I'm not above awkwardly scooch/wiggling into and out of a chair for the sake of some fantastic stripes.

Also, this thing has a giant, white, completely 80s collar which I tucked in on this, the day of the scooch sit. Hence the title again.
Do you guys have any items you're pretty iffy about, but can't seem to let go of? I MUST KNOW.

  1. i have SO many things i'm iffy about but can't let go of. i'd say that's half my closet if we're being honest! i've got the same problem with dresses sometimes...i'm only 5'5, but i've got legs a mile long...they're horribly disproportionate, which is supposed to be a good thing? or so people tell me. i think it's a curse, because everything looks so, so short! but hey, even if you had to be careful about bending over, and sitting down, and scooching around, it was worth it because this looks smashing on you! xo.

    1. It's good to know I'm not the only one with this issue! But yeah, you'd think that would be a good thing; it's my understanding that most women would enjoy that problem?
      And thanks, dear! : )

    1. Yeah, isn't that the way it goes?
      I don't want to be shorter anymore; I've accepted my fate and I would be waaaayyy more round if I was shorter : )

    1. I had a pair, but they mysteriously disappeared. And it's too bad, cause I have some things I can't wear cause they pretty much require spanx.
