Mini-midi-maxi, which is the fairest of them all? In the 70s, the popularity of the mini skirt was challenged by the midi and maxi lengths. Perhaps, it was a result of the economic instability of the times. Or better yet, more women realized that there wasn't necessraily anything liberating about risking over-exposure just because you go to pick up your dropped pencil. Whatever the case may be, I'm glad there was a revival. I'm glad the midi and maxi were eventually embraced by women all over (methinks Faye Dunaway- Bonnie & Clyde anyone?- deserves some thanks).
As much as I fancy a good mini, I find a longer hemline rather flattering and of course, more practical for Fall. It is also refreshing to catch a break from excessive leg exposure brought about by denim cut-offs and barely there rompers (summer 2010, I salute you!). I love this pleated bat-print number I found a couple of weeks ago. I was so pleased with it, I crossed by fingers in hopes that it would fit, and didn't bother to try it on. If the intention was to have me go the entire day without a meal, then yes, I would say it was made with me in mind. Paired with a fitted turtleneck for an overall polished look. I would definitely wear this again (on days when I decide I'm not a fan of breathing) with a loose fitting tee, or a cropped top for a more laidback look. What do you reckon?
Hope you all had a lovely weekend. For someone who says she's not really a "concert person" (whatever that means), I managed to squeeze two in this weekend- the Drums and Gorillaz feat. N.E.R.D. If they're coming by a city near you, I would most definitely recommend both. Utterly brilliant!
