This original price on this gorgeous Max & Cleo dress was $178. I nabbed it for just $34 on! (Note: the price as of last night is $53. The same dress is also available on for $103.)

I love this pattern and material, the full skirt and the length. I just wasn't loving the shape of the handkerchief hem, so instead of returning it I took it to a tailor. Before I could utter a word, she had a measuring stick and chalk around the bottom of the skirt, excited at how gorgeous it would be as one length when she finished it. She did a great job and the pros are having a dress that's one of a kind, an overall better shape for my body and a length that's better suited for casual occasions. The only con/bummer is that the shorter length won't work for church or other formal occasions now.  I can't wait to wear it this spring, and I've got another floral - blazers and cardigans - on my wish list, see below. I'm digging the second option with stripes underneath!
