You know that you’ve been watching too much Downton Abbey when you look at a dress with a short hemline like this one and think it frightfully indecent (to be read in your scandalised Maggie Smith tone) and in need of a good pressing (and this from the girl least likely to iron anything).
The skirt of this dress is a little on the transparent side, which I imagine works beautifully on leggy sample-sized teenagers, so I usually add a black mini underneath to increase the modesty factor a tad. Ironically enough, the slips that I own are all too long to be an appropriate undergarment for this dress.

Don’t let the pretty dresses distract you from the cause – Frocktober is a fundraiser! I’m raising money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, and if you’ve enjoyed this post, you can contribute here.
