I bought this semi-shirt dress (its not the real thing--it only buttons up halfway) last weekend with the intention of wearing it as a dress with some boots. I tried it on, fell in love with it, and then lifted my arms over my head to test the length...and flashed my butt to the room. Damn being six feet tall!
So, I made it work appropriate by pairing it with some tight knit black pants, and am looking forward to putting it with tights once the weather gets a little cooler. I think it won't be entirely lost during the warmer months though, because it will be the perfect "dressy" cover up for a pool party.
