Over-50 Mini-skirters Vindicated!
I am so jazzed! Yes, it's true--the over-40 (and over-50) mini-skirters have been vindicated by a Lucky Mag staffer--Jean Godfrey June! After being asked, "..over 40, how short can dresses and shorts be? in her "Dear Lucky" column, she answers, ..."Sixty-year-olds with great legs should most definitely wear short skirts! (Hello, Tina Turner!)".... And how perfect is this for "Visible Monday"?
Her answer to the question gives a lot more great advice--unfortunately there is no link to the article, but its' on page 44 of the October Issue. I felt empowered after I read her response and I am already thinking of the stockings and sweater I can wear with my favorite mini of the summer!
Oh, what qualifies my mini's above? I gauged them at more than 1" above the knee--not a mini by a twenty-year-old's standard, but enough for me!
Thanks again to Patti over at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. Hey Patti, how about a mini-skirt Visible Monday???? (although I know minis aren't for everyone!)
