Point being, this is the gorgeous shift dress I just got this weekend from the antique store. It actually looks very nice on me and even I am reluctant to belt (though like a true addict I inevitably will at some point). When I was purchasing it the older man at the counter kept pointing out how I could lengthen the hem. It took me a moment to realize, but what he meant was, it looked too short for me! It was marked "little girls," but I have a good eye for telling if things will fit (I couldn't try it on, no dressing room). I'd like to share with everyone that it does have a shorter hem, but it is passes fingertip length, so it would pass those obnoxious rules many schools enforce.
I was too weary to go outside for the pictures, so these are shot from my bed. There's also a small closeup of my eyeliner, since I wing it nearly every day but no one can really tell. I wing it less boldly in the summer; hot weather calls for lighter make up, right?
