Dorothy Perkins to wear to DH's work party. I've never ordered from that site before, but they were running a sale when I ordered and the price was worth the risk that the dress wouldn't fit.
It finally showed up today, and I ripped open the package and immediately went to try it on, half expecting it to be too small. Woohoo--it fits!!!
Except that it is REALLY short. Like slutty short. Like barely covering my girlie bits better make sure I get a wax before wearing short and don't sit or bend EVER short.
Of course, the measurements were provided on the website, but I didn't bother to check the length. It didn't look short on the mannequin, and since at 5'4" I'm on the shorter side, even dresses that look short on tall, slender models are usually ok for me.
So am I going to return it?
No. Even though I think I'm a bit too old to wear a dress this short. But my legs are among my better assets, and the rest of the dress is conservative enough to offset the slutty shortness, I think. I will add black hose instead of going bare-legged, as was my original intent, though.
The quality was also better than expected for the price. To get free shipping I threw in a pair of earrings and this cute little sweater, which also seems like decent quality for the price.
