wearing: Rachel Pally dress (via Hautelook) | Sergio Rossi shoes (gift) | Chains (secondhand via MOSS Austin)
This Rachel Pally dress FINALLY arrived yesterday from Hautelook (their long shipping times really make me appreciate Gilt!) and I really like it, although it was WAY too long on me. And since Rachel Pally doesn’t “finish” her hems, I cut it. I made a real mess. Hopefully you can’t tell from the picture, but I’m pretty sure the dress is shorter in the back (I should have left it a bit longer in the back to allow for that) and my scissors were not sharp enough, so the line is not “straight.” And, of course, I think the dress is now TOO short, but I know you guys won’t think so 🙂
I’m going to wear it, and I do love the dress, but I wish I’d taken it to be professionally cut instead of doing it myself. In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m really not a DIY’er!! But I didn’t sleep well last night and am taking more Vicodin to try and combat the pain from my root canal yesterday before going out tonight to a few of my friends’ Austin Fashion week parties, so I didn’t want to go out this morning. Ah. Live and learn!
I think this dress looks amazing on you! And, it is not too short! Feel better soon!!!

Grechen!! You’re wearing pattern!!! 🙂
I absolutely love this dress on you and definitely not too short!!!!! I don’t think anyone will be inspecting your hemline and notice the diy hem but I can understand if the imperfect hem is driving you a little batty.

You are looking beautiful! Your hair color compliments your skin very well! Nice haircut and your skin looks glowing.

I also don’t think it’s too short, and I’m kind of in love with it! Rachel Pally makes a gorgeous plus size line and I’ve been scoping some pieces for a while. I think it’s time to take the plunge and invest in one!

This is a GORGEOUS dress and truly looks great on you. I don’t think it looks too short but it’s all about what you’re comfortable in. Despite that, the fit looks so, so good! 🙂

Oh, Grechen! You were absolutely lovely wearing that dress! I loved it on you!
I LOVE(!) that dress on you–in fact, I saw it on Sharon’s blog on you and was going to ask you who it was by–and the length is perfection. (oh…and your hair is looking GREAT! I’m growing mine out after a minor haircut disaster before I moved, and it seems to be shrinking instead of growing. Stress? What stress?)
