A number of years ago I bought a The Row Marina shift dress and wore it only once—it was too short. After relegating the shift to the back of my closet for a few seasons, I pulled it out and shortened it into a tunic (it’s almost identical to the Proenza Schouler top above). Now, I wear it all the time over these J. Brand white jeans. I wore this look yesterday to a lunch at The Mercer Kitchen to pitch a TV show.
