The secretary dress

I thrifted this secretary dress years ago and I had never worn it before today. For some reason there was something 'off' that I could never really put my finger on... But then I suddenly got it; I hated the sleeves. They used to be longer and that was just too much. The whole dress just became a bit 'overwhelming' since it's already very pleated and 'ruffly.' So I had the sleeves shortened and now I love my dress again! Isn't this just the most beautiful shade of pink?
