Dress : c/o Persunmall
Necklace : c/o Persunmall
Shoes : ASOS
I picked this dress from Persunmall because it looked absolutely adorable on the website. What I didn’t do, stupidly, was measure the length of it. I’m 5ft 8. Actuatually I’m 5ft 7.5. Or sometimes 5ft 7, depending on my mood. Okay fine! I’m really 5ft 7 but I like to say I’m 5ft 8. It makes my BMI smaller, you see. Clever trick. Anyway, back to the topic. This dress is lovely and all, but it’s so so so short!
There are a lot of clothing websites like Persunmall where all the sizes run really small, I’ve found this with various others. I usually have to measure my waist/hips before ordering because although I am usually a size 10 or Small in most clothes from the UK, I often find myself having to order a large, or even an extra large in some of these online stores from overseas. Which is probably one of the reasons why I have to pretend I’m 5ft 8. Being a lower BMI makes me feel better about myself when I am ordering an extra large dress. Self deception, you’re my best friend.
I have never thought to take into consideration the length of an item before, but I will now! I do understand that this is my fault, and not Persunmalls fault, as the measurements are clearly stated on their website, I’m just a bit of a knob. and a noob.
The dress fits lovely on my housemate who is around 5ft 3. I’m not sure if she would let me take a photo of her in it though for the BLAWG. I’m pretty sure she is sick of me talking about my blog lately and probably just wants to burn it down. ‘Look Christine, look at my blog, Christine! Blog BLOG, look at it, did ya look at it? Blog blawwwg. Christine! Look, I changed my header, look, I made this column wider. Christine, can you see what I changed? Christine, Christine, CHRISTINE, help me Christine, I’m operating on my HTML and I’m terrified. Christine. Blog.’
(Speaking of HTML, I’ve made a few changes to my layout and ting. I hope you you like it.)
In other news, the necklace fits me I picked out fits me like a glove….
Moral of the story:
Don’t forget your measuring tape when shopping online!
