Gun Show

dress: Unif, long cardigan: who the hell knows, boots: Charles David, belt: F21

I love this dress. From the moment I saw it on Karmaloop, I knew I had to have it. Only then, it had long mesh sleeves attached. I don't do long sleeves often for a couple of reasons, a) It's usually really hot here, no one wants to sweat that much. b) I have really long arms. Most long sleeves don't reach my wrists. It's ok, I'm used to it. But with this dress I encountered a new issue. My arms were too BIG for the sleeves. Not long, BIG. I couldn't get my biceps through. So I had two options. Send it back for a larger size but that would make the dress bigger everywhere else. Or...cut off the sleeves. Option number 2 won and it's been working for me.
