Supply can be a challenge. For the first few years when the waist line on pants dropped I really struggled to find pants that fit me well. I'm tall, but I don't have long super model legs, I'm a bit longer in the rise than average as my extra height isn't just in my legs. I have a longer inseam, longer leg length and longer torso than average. Some women, especially those strutting down the runway just have miles long legs, no extra height anywhere else. Sorry to be boring you with these details, but the result was that for a few years there were no pants available that covered my bottom. Pants have always been a challenge for me so I have worn skirts most often for the past twenty five years. I love denim skirts and while a denim mini has just about always been fashionable for a hot young twenty something, it has been quite awhile since I was near to that and even then minis were never in my comfort zone.
Something like these but with a lower heel.
Add another inch to the length of this skirt and here it is, a perfect outfit for me.
(Okay, I lied a little, I look terrible in turtle necks)
I have two denim skirts in my wardrobe right now. One similar to the first picture and another that is long, ending just below my calves. If I could have one for every day of the week, I would. And I don't care anymore if they are trendy or not. Some years hey are ripped and bleached, some years they are full with kicky little pleats. There are granny versions with elastic waistbands, high waisted and low waisted, flared and tapered, embroidered with pink and blue flowers, covered in zippers, frayed at the ends and even acid wash. They aren't all the right one for me, but I comb the thrift shops looking to increase my collection. A straight cut denim skirt is part of my personal style now. I don't care if the It Girls are wearing them or not. What is your favourite thing to wear whether it is in style or not? Do you long for the return of stirrup pants or high waisted jeans? Have you stubbornly clung to your shoulder pads? Is there something from this season that you love so much you think you will keep it even when it is no longer au current?
I'm seeing socks with dressy and even strappy shoes in the fashion pictures for spring. Maybe my beloved Velma will more fashionable than Daphne this year.
