Work Wear?

Last week I ordered a couple of dresses off of the Forever21 website. I usually don't do that since normally I like to try on clothes before I buy them, but I thought at any rate if I didn't like it or it didn't fit then I could send the item back. So I placed my order and eagerly awaited my dresses to come in.

Last Friday I finally got them and couldn't wait to try them on. One dress I had ordered for work, as it was a cute, khaki shirtdress.

Adorable right?

Well...it was so cute on. It fit perfectly, except for one major thing. It was way too short! As in you could almost catch a glimpse of my posterior short! I was so disappointed because it was so cute and if longer would have been great to wear to work. I thought about sending it back and getting a large, but when I checked the website the length was only 30.5 inches. Guess I should have noticed that before I ordered it!

I tried it on for Sean the other day. His response? "Wear it to work, maybe you'll get a raise." He was joking of course, but I vetoed that idea.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the dress. Most likely return it and try to exchange it for something else. It's even too short to wear out, so I won't get any use out of it unless I return it for something else.

What about some leggings or pant-ish type thing underneath it?

It is super cute! I'm bummed for you too. I hate it when that happens!

I hope the other dress was good!

That is a cute dress. I agree with Andrea though. Could leggings work?

What kind of work do you do?

You ladies are right...leggings could work. I just need to go buy some I suppose.

To answer your question American Mum, I work at a claims office, I'm a sort of front office girl if you will.

I was going to say the same dang thing about leggings. I think that sort of short dress/ long shirt and leggings look is "in" this year, but I don't really follow fashion so don't quote me. Just like those weird wanna be shorts/ dress pants were last year.
