The stumbling giant

I’m sometimes described by my friends as a giantess, frankly I can see where they’re coming from. I’m five foot nine, which hardly qualifies me as an actual giant, however in heels I’m well over six foot and my floundering clumsiness makes me appear larger than I am. People have to clear a wide path to stay on the periphery of the destruction that I inadvertently cause.  Briefly putting my bumbling incoordination aside, I usually avoid short dresses and skirts because they’re usually cut for a more petit woman and come up to my ribs, but also because I can’t be trusted not to topple over and expose myself. However, this little gem by Finders Keepers from Rtister might just be an exception to my short dress embargo; its asymmetric hem provides a little flattering coverage, but more importantly the waist actually sits where it’s meant to. I love the dramatic origami folds and sporty cut out details in the back. To continue the sports luxe vibe, I’ve styled the dress with Aperlai neon sandals. It would perhaps be more prudent to work this look without tights, however I feel more confident with my legs wrapped up in my 80 deniers, so that’s that. Also, I think the secret to any good outfit is to break at least one rule.
