I bought this Theresa Rawsthorne dress last year, or perhaps the year before. I’ve never worn it. Partly because by the time I got reason to wear it, it had been usurped by newer options. But also because the fit was a bit loose and it lacked that ‘something’. But rather than just sell it, I’m trying to realise its potential.
(I should mention that the front is in a blue lurex fabric that is gorgeous on the skin, and the back is a plain silk that is shorter, when kept at the longer length).
I think the belt helps, but I’m still left with a hemline dilemma.
On the left, more elegant but perhaps still a little dowdy?
On the right, a badly pinned rendition that would be executed without the balloon puff suggested, and at knee level. This length of course compliments, and complements, the leg so much more, but is a bit more perky and ‘expected’.
After my crop top expose, I think I’m erring longer.
