Default This dress for a 36 year old?

I couldn't believe I sort of liked this dress when I put it on this morning. I'm just really worried it's too young! And short!

What do you think?

Oh, and see my shelves! LOL! I took down all of Christmas and have just been loving my empty shelves! I hate clutter with a passion and love empty space. But I think I really need to put something on them at this point.

I think you look great! Wear it! I don't think it's too young for 36 at all, it fits you well, and I think its a great color for you.

It is awesome on you and you should definitely wear it. You look great in it and I don't think it is too young or too short for you.

IMO the dress looks fantastic General suggestion though - if you're ever wearing a dress that feels short to you (and I'm totally not saying that the dress in the picture is short), make sure you wear flats instead of heels. I once bought a dress that felt a touch short, but reasonable, in the dressing room. I wore it out one day slipping on heels before leaving the house, and I spent the entire day feeling self conscious Not quite sure why heels make a dress feel even shorter, but it sure seems to happen to me

When did 36 get too old for anything? That's how old I am. Rock that dress, girl! Looks great!

That my dear is neither too young nor too short on you. 36 is still young. Rock it with some boots (not ankle)!

OMG...this was the very first thing I noticed...the empty shelves. LOL

Cute dress, and actually that fabric reminds me of material my Grandmother used to wear. Retro...so not too young in my opinion.
