I was looking for a new white dress and wanted to go in the direction of the tulip silhouette. I tried on several designers but unfortunately I didn’t have any luck. I knew where to go next…

I only had 30 minutes until the stores closed. I zip out of Saks and walk up one block to Zara. It only took half a loop around the store for me to find the dress I was searching for. It was made from a nice weight of fabric that had texture, an exposed zipper and large keyhole back. No need to try on, I grab my size and head to the register. Later on in the evening, I try on the dress and we have a problem. The dress is short and borderline vulgar, especially if paired with heels. If only it were 4 inches longer.

Because the dress was ridiculously inexpensive, I went back to the store, purchased a second one in green and had a DIY session.

This is short, I hope it’s not windy on that rooftop10

4 inches off the green dress and added to the white should do the trick 121314
