I’m going to go against everything I believe in

and insist that my sis keep this vintage dress exactly as it is.


She picked it up on her travels with the intention of shortening it. But frolicking in fields isn’t the same in a short dress. And this is a frolicking kind of dress. 


She thinks it will just sit in her closet if she leaves it long. But I think in ten years when she finds that perfect event to wear it to, she’ll be happy she kept it floor-length.


There has been speculation that this was actually a bridesmaid’s dress in its day (the brooch is her own).


What do you think? Do you vote to keep it long and risk rarely wearing it? Or do you vote to cut it short so it’s more wearable?

    Cut it short!!

    In ten years, Larissa will have several more closets full of dresses. Life is short – enjoy the dress now.

    Nobody wants to see you frolicking anyway, Riss. Shorten it… and make it short enough ;)

    I think long is better… but if you won’t wear it then definitely short. But if short, I agree with Kell and go really short!

    alright, I made a final decision, going to leave it long, but get it taken in so it’s a bit more flattering, thus satisfying ALLL

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Maybe I’ll throw a fancy garden party just so you have an excuse to wear it.
