I know, it's ridiculously short. I don't recommend wearing something this short if you happen to be taking photos across the street from a parking garage where twenty dudes work, because they will whistle and holler until your cheeks are bright red. Apparently the fact that this dress was clearly made for a husky little girl was trumped by the shortness. I found it at a thrift store about a year ago and this seems like the perfect time of year to wear it. I feel like I should be holding a mug of hot chocolate and standing in a pile of snow, but San Francisco is breaking the weather rules as usual and giving us lots of sunshine. Can't complain!

I hope the holidays have been treating you lovelies well so far... I'm heading up north to Santa Rosa tomorrow evening to spend some time with my family. Excited to play a few heated rounds of Trivial Pursuit with my favorite people in the world!

Such a great dress and totally perfect for the holidays! I'm really loving all of your festive looks. I have a few dresses that are a bit on the short side which I am not completely comfortable with but they are so cool otherwise so I like to pair them with some vintage lacy bloomers that kind of peak out. They're fun and enable me to wear a wider range of dresses that I might otherwise feel a tiny bit awkward in ha :)
