Red Herring Dress

When I picked up this rayon, tie-dye-esque dress at a clothes swap last fall, without even trying it on, I thought for sure I was going to chop off the top and make it a maxi skirt.

But when I tried it on, I was surprised at how well it fit (though it did not flatter) and at how comfy it was. So I decided to chop off the bottom instead. About a foot shorter and paired with my beaded leather belt and gold wedges, this baby looks much better.

So, cute! As always :) Good call on the length: that and a belt was all it needed!
