Advice from a Caterpillar

'One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter.'

'One side of WHAT? The other side of WHAT?' thought Alice to herself.

'Of the mushroom,' said the Caterpillar, just as if she had asked it aloud; and in another moment it was out of sight.

There are times, as a tall girl, that you wish for a slight decrease in your stature. These moments are relatively rare...and generally fashion related...though I admit that airline seating does run a close second in creating a momentary wish for a chunk of Alice's mushroom...

My angst on this occasion was caused by this very cute (yet very short) dress from Forever 21. It would have been a perfect everyday dress for the summer but having compared the length to that of my shortest dress I realized that it falls into the "unable to bend over, or actually move too quickly" category...not exactly what you look for in a dress for running errands in.

And so, the summer dress search continues...

    It's a copy of a Topshop one from last summer! The TS one might have been a bit longer, it came to about knee length on me, and I'm 5'4". There loads popping up on ebay at the moment, if that helps

    I like it, but that does sound a bit short.
