short shift

Dear Phillip Lim,
You make very beautiful clothes that I like very much.

But there is something you should know. If a garment is so short that a girl can't move her arms without showing the world her undies then that garment not a dress, it's a shirt.

And (although they are not seen here) tights are not pants.

xoxo, Abigail

(I LOVE the black and the yellow one, but with PANTS!)

I vote to put some pants on those models. I agree with you -- these are so cute but I'm shocked how he manages to make these "dresses" even shorter by adding a trim of see-through lace. Maybe if I had giant long legs and I never ever bent over, I could pull one off.

Cute dresses, if only a litter longer.

A good excuse to buy some very beautiful overpriced lace undies? Ya know, since its pretty evident people will be seeing a lot more than just the dress.

Abigail, thank you for saying what I've been thinking- what is with the shrinking hemlines on dresses?! Such a shame bc I, like you, loooove everything Philip Lim makes.

She wants so badly to sit down, but she can't! (and her bum is cold...)

I agree!

It's about time someone said it! I'm 5' 10" and most "dresses" they are making now barely cover my butt!

The dresses are very short, but they are so cute that we should forgive them! The red one and the last one are both so stunning!
