Vintage Mood

What do you do when the dress you ordered online is too short but too cute to return it? I chose to wear it as a peplum top and complemented the look with the blazer buttoned behind my back.
Blazer: Zara. Dress: Choies (similar here). Shoes: Zara (last seen here and here). Purse: Dior.

  8. I often have the same problem as you do!! I order dresses that are really short for me! But it's a good alternative to wear them with black tights!
    Bravo for the pitcures, they are really nice and you're so pretty!!!
