How I Wear MY PEACE of jewelry - Dress too Short, What to Wear

I bought this knit dress/shirt a few months ago
from Urban Outfitters
knowing it would be too short to wear as a dress 
but knowing it would be just right wearing with pants

Question: What to wear with figure-hugging-too-short-dress-but-too-long-shirt?
Answer - skinny cropped jeans

I could not resist buying this dress/shirt
The print is pretty cool
Front - striped print
Back - chevron print

I think we are all familiar with a STRIPED pattern
but what is a CHEVRON pattern?

CHEVRON - is simply a V-shaped pattern
It's a BOLD pattern that complements every body shape

I paired the outfit with my black ballet flats

Of course, I have to show MY PEACE of jewelry  that I wore

  1. Hi Zalina! Here is the Huffington Post story you participated in!

    1. Wendy: Thank you so much! I love it. It's an honor to be featured with other awesome bloggers.

    1. Thank you, Marla! They are my version of chandelier earrings. :)

  3. I love that this dress/top has a chevron pattern on the back (Chevron is the name of a gas station in Canada, ha ha! Of course, their logo is...a chevron).

    Great look - the earrings are awesome. You made them? Even better!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Zalina!

    1. Thanks. You looked awesome in your blog. Loved the dresses. We also have a Chevron gas station.

  4. If you hadn't told me I never would've known that was a "too short dress" because it is a perfect top with those skinny jeans! Stunning earrings, of course ;-)


    1. Thank you, Alicia. I'm wondering if the dress/shirt would work with black opaque tights and boots. It might be too short. We'll see. :)

  5. Love this top! I agree, chevron stripes are so flattering, and I love the exposed zipper. Thanks for sharing all the great looks with Vis Monday.

    1. Thank you, Patti. Love your Visible Mondays

  6. Liebe Zalina!
    Aus dem sonnigen Deutschland möchte ich dir schreiben.Dein Shirt mit den Streifen und den Reisverschluss sieht toll aus.Ist doch Klasse wie Streifen wirken, anders zugeschnitten.Du siehst wieder wunderbar aus.
    Ich grüße dich herzlichst von vielen Kilometern entfernt Annette

    1. Hallo Annette:


      Deutschland hat die Sonne und Los Angeles hat ein wenig Regen. Das Wetter hier ist kuehl. Das ist der Grund, dass ich eine Bluse mit lange Aermel trage. :)

  7. I adore that great tunic...and of course I would wear it with...skinny jeans, as well! I never saw it on the Urban Outfitters site - what a score! I'm just learning to wear stripes and getting into the Parisian aspect of it. You rock those earrings, too!

  8. Fabulous combination ... I'm all over the stripes, and the chevron treatment in the back takes it out of the ordinary. So does the length! Who knew it was a dress? Perfect solution to the problem: skinnies. Yup.
    Of course, the earrings set it off. They're the best!
    Sorry I'm late ... strange blogging week!
    Speaking of week, have a great on Zalina!
