This dress is super cute, but agree with some of the other comments may want to be careful of the length under your gown.

I love it! All of my friends and I wore dresses. Seriously it's a wow dress you'll be walking around for a while after taking pics anyway in a gross gown. Then it's like I'm a fun and stylish butterfly coming out of my nylon cocoon! lol I mean unless your going to a ball afterwards...

Thanks for the feedback guys =). It's actually not that short on me. I'm 5'2 ... so no where as gifted as the model in the legs department.

Can someone PM me where I can buy this dress? :)

Absolutely lovely. Beware of the weather - despite it being May, last two graduation ceremonies in my university were rainy and cold :) If you are going to wear a graduation gown, wait with the dress till afterparty. Again - super lovely!

its very cute ... a lil bit on the short side ... but depending on your height, it wouldn't be too short

I guess I'm old at 28! I think it's WAY too short... then again, if you are short like me, it may be more knee length than mini.

Of course it is, why wouldn`t it be. It`s far from being vulgar at all.

I agree with Neekoh. Models are taller than the average girl, so if you're 5'6" or under, I don't think it'll be short at all. The dress itself is very appropriate, even if it is on the casual side.

One thing though: How does it look under your gown? Sleeveless, short dresses tend to disappear under the gown, making you look like you're wearing nothing! Maybe throw a sweater/blazer over it?

I think it's appropriate! The model is super leggy, which makes the dress seem uber short, but in reality, I think it'll hit a bit lower on your thighs, which makes it perfect. Unless you're 5'10", in which case, I might reconsider. :) Hope that helps!! XX, Neekoh

For a graduation party, yes. For the actual graduation, it's a little short.

If you have the same figure as the model then yes. Congrats!!!!

I personally wouldn't feel comfortable wearing something that short in front of my conservative grandparents, but I think it's super cute.

I think it's really short... As said above, as long as you're wearing appropriate footwear you will look fine.

It's a very tastful pattern and classy if worn the right way. As long as you're not wearing it with hooker heels, I think it's totally appropriate! Super cute!
