I am one of those people who breaks a cardinal rule of fashion: No mini skirts over fifty. (well, could be thirty-five--I don't have the actual rule book.)
|From the back, low on the horrification scale.|
But Sherry at Girls Day Out looked through my blog and couldn't find me in my minis. That's probably because I take most of my blog pictures for work and I wear my minis for casual wear. So even though I break the rules, I do have some guidelines; no minis at work, no minis where there are lots of girls are younger than me, and keep it to friends and family--so as not to horrify too many people.

And when people have that look of horrification on their face when they see my short skirt, maybe somewhere an over-fiftier will look at me and say to themselves, ..."hey, if she can do it.....". It may not be a mini-skirt, but maybe it'll provoke some thought and courage for them to wear that orange, sleeveless blouse, or wear those shorts, or maybe even a backless dress. You can do it--I know you can.
