We went to a wedding last weekend for our cousin.  I really wanted to wear this red maxi to celebrate the union {because red symbolizes happiness in the Chinese culture} but it’s too long.  Normally I wear it with my leopard platform wedges and the the hem skims the floor, but I was going to be carrying the little man around so I didn’t want to chance having a fall.

I decided to do what any reasonable Macgyver-type gal would do and use safety-pins to shorten the dress!

I folded the front hem under and pinned it in two places on the seam of the waistband.  It created a nice bubble/draping/Grecian effect and was short enough so I would not trip!  AND I could wear strappy sandals!  Perfect-o!  Just wanted to share my quick tip in case you’ve ever had this problem.
