  6. Love the slip extender. I so need to acquire some. That would definitely extend the selection of dresses I could choose from.

  7. I love the slip extender idea! That is really the perfect fit for some of my dresses, that are too short even with tights. How lovely. I really liked your outfit this week, by the way.

  15. I have the same dress that I got from Target about 2 years ago! Thank you for the new way to style it and making me realize a black ruffle slip is a total necessity.

  20. thanks everyone.
    always something: this slip is a full body slip, so it doesn't slide around, but i know what you're talking about! it's so annoying.

  21. I DO dig the slip-extender! It just complements this outfit perfectly. I recently thrifted a longish, lacey slip and have been excited to wear it at every possible moment. =) Great earrings and shoes, as well. Simply wonderful.

    Oh! And your braid! GAH! Yes, I'm crazy about this look. Enough said.

  22. I so dig the slip extender since I thrifted this very dress a few months ago and have pretty much not worn it because I can't figure out what to do with it! HOORAY!
