We’ve been talking a lot about dealing with unruly skirts and dresses recently. I shared my experiences of tying my skirt and stapling my dress. To avoid such a faux pas in the future, I decided to wear my old Nike spandex shorts (no padding) under suspicious new dresses.
Such was the case with a dress I thrifted last week (ahem, new with Nordstrom tags, I gotta brag). The skirt was full and the fabric light, making the dress a candidate for floating-up-with-the-wind syndrome, so I threw my spandex shorts underneath and thought I managed to be both clever and chic.
I realized only when I got this film photo back from the lab that the outline of the shorts was totally visible under the dress fabric.
*sigh* The dress never behaved inappropriately on the bike, anyway. Such is life, I suppose.
At this point, the garter-belt-pinned-to-dress idea is looking like the best. I’m noting that for the future. :)
