Fortunately, I brought a coat with me that evening because as soon as I sat down, the skirt ceased to be long enough. I tugged and pulled to try to get the unforgiving fabric to reach my knees. I came home and threw the skirt in pile to take to D.I.
It's a good thing I hadn't delivered that D.I. pile yet because last week I received a complimentary slip from FancySlips. Intended as skirt extenders, the lacy and frilly slips turn a too-short skirt into a wardrobe possibility. There are fancy and plain extenders--ones that work with prom dresses and with more simple skirts.
I wore the FancySlip with my too-short skirt yesterday to church. I felt modest but I couldn't stop wondering if they worked together. Was I trying too hard to make the skirt work? Amberly thought it looked fabulous. The skirt extenders are beautiful but pairing them with the right skirts might be tricky, especially for a fashionably challenged person like myself. However, with the right pairing, I think the FancySlips could be really nice with the too-short skirt.
The slip was very pretty and well made. FancySlips have many different styles so there is probably a slip to work with nearly every short skirt or dress you have.
FancySlips has offered to give one slip to one reader.
