After meeting LaPedestrienne last week, and noticing how great the Phoebe dress looked on her, I was inspired to take a gamble and give it a try. I seriously think the shopping gods are on my side... there was very very limited selection left, but what WAS left was the only one I was really interested in... the bees... and they still had what was probably my size (a guess as I think I could have also taken the Eleanor a size smaller but have no idea). Although I did need to get a long.

The fit is PERFECT. How does this happen? I do wonder if it's too long though - does this look frumpy? I'm sure I could get it hemmed if YLF wisdom thinks it should be. I kinda like the idea of a dress that is a bit longer, as long as it looks ok. I have a multitude of shoes I can wear with it... Ecco sneakers in white, navy, and possibly citron, navy wedges, navy and white sandals... not worried about that at all. Just didn't want to bother hauling them all out, these are what I wore to work today.

I had put this sweater in my basket ages ago, and was waiting until I found something else to get me free shipping. Also perfect. No styling, it's too hot!

Thoughts on the dress length?

ETA Photos 4-7, I pinned the skirt to a shorter length. Looking at them, I think it could go even shorter. Maybe ??? So now what... those of you that voted leave it long, do you still vote leave it long?

And do you like the cardigan in #5 with it? I thought this would be a workhorse when I got it last summer, but I've really struggled to wear it.
