Wedding Guest Outfit: Dress by Chaps via Kohl's
I made you all wait for this post and i promise you there is a good reason why.

So i told you all i attended a wedding during Labor Day weekend and yes, it was so much fun. After deliberating on what to wear for too long i decided on a knee length textured dress- A foil empire dress by Chaps via Kohl's. The only problem was, they didn't have my size. It was two sizes bigger than my actual size, but i ordered it anyway. I planned to have it adjusted to my size, but i already knew i was so short of time. Well, luckily the dress came just a couple of days before the wedding, but i was so scared of adjusting it. Why?

-I didn't want to take the risk of ruining the original beauty of the dress.
-I didn't want to to take chances and then the dress might end up not being ready in time.

I had a backup dress, but i really wanted to wear this dress. The wedding was a late afternoon wedding with a late night party to follow and i knew it will be a perfect dress from day to night. Anyway, long story short, i wore the dress the way it was to the wedding, but when we came back to Toronto, i had it taken in a little bit and cut short. Love the new length and fit, but looking at the photos side by side, it almost makes me wish i didn't. Eeeek!!

I know it is too late now, but i still like the dress short regardless. You be the judge-  Better long or short?

in my opinion with your legs- the shorter is always the better! Yes, the dress looks lovely both way, but why not show what you've got?;)

I like the colour of the dress...silver- so lovely! The cut is great for you and I've said what I had about the length....Anyhow, you look fantastic in it!

Mrs FF said...

Stunning! Stunning!! Stunning!!!
I can't even decide! I love the short dress and I love the longer length! Though the fit of the shorter one definitely shots you better !!! Nice dress and you make it look even nicer!

Natalie Harris said...

I love the look! The color of your dress is great and I'm loving the pop of orange in the shoes!!

Jackie Harrison said...

You look wonderful, love the dress :)

Missy May said...

Great feminine dress and it compliment you so well. I like both length. :) Have a good weekend!

You know , that stuff scares me a lot , so many times i want something so badly that even though my size isn't available i pick up the next size after that and the fear of having it amended by a tailor gets to me because i don't know if it will come back looking ridiculous on me. But really your tailor did a good job because i love the dress and the way you styled it , Sophisticated chic!

Stella said...

Hmm. Well, this is really difficult! I think both cuts are great. It was the better pick when you went to the wedding but now you have a party dress, right? No matter what you look gorgeous — in both variants. So don't worry, the dress is awesome ^_^

Keep it short, please. I like it like that.

Lenya said...

Actually I love both cuts Busola and you look great wearing both, I suppose it depends on the event you wanna wear it for, long for the wedding, short for a hot date night out ;)

Lovely dress!

Really beautiful outfit, stunning xx

Lubka Christova said...

Wow, that is so interesting :)
To be honest - I do prefer how the dress fits you after the fixing. It is nice indeed at a longer length, but not as nice as when it's just above the knee and better fitted around your waist.
Well done for adjusting is all I can say !! :)

Both dresses look beautiful and classy on you, but I also like the shorter version better. You're totally working that beautiful smile with the shorter version, so I'm sold! <3

I love both versions, but they look like two completely different dresses haha :) Pairing it with the orange pumps was a great idea!
