mini

Photobucket

So, all of a sudden I'm really into mini dresses. Back in high school and around then, practically every time I got a dress from a thrift store I would hem it into a mini. Skirts too, I just couldn't bring myself to wear stuff that hit below the knee, or even slightly above it for that matter.But then finally I stopped myself from cutting inches off the bottom of everything I got, because I saw the beauty in the original piece, and all that. But now I just have this sudden urge to wear all mini dresses, and low and behold, I hardly have any! So when I went to Beacon's Closet the other day to trade, I was on the hunt for something with a short hemline.

I came across this dress and just had to have it, I totally love the collar and the colors! I even took it up a few inches when I got it home haha. It is a tad too tight in the bust area, note the squishing.. so I may even end up selling it eventually if that causes me to not wear it as much as I would like to. Either way, I am off to a good start, and even picked up another mini for myself that day. I also need to replenish my tights and knee high collection, I tend to just throw tights away durring the warm months cause I can't stand to think of even wearing them!

What a great dress and you certainly have the legs to pull off a minidress. I love reading all your posts about NYFW, I've been insanely busy and not commenting but I've been reading them.
In your previous post you mention Buffalo Exchange in WIliamsburg, I literally NEVER have a nice experience selling there. There's one guy that lifted my freshly cleaned cashmere sweater like it was a dead-moldy rat and goes "This pink is SO not in." I am not even kidding. I hate the men in that store.
AND, that green velvet dress...I kinda die at how beautiful it is.
