I usually don’t wear skirts and dresses that are both fitted and mini; I usually opt for shorter and flowy or fitted above the knee. My friend Jenny bought me this pretty little number for my birthday and I really loved it, but I was a bit weary. I put it on so many times, but I would take it off thinking it’s too short and tight for me. I get flashbacks of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when she walks about town in her mini dress and gets stare downs from people – I want to avoid the feeling of looking like a streetwalker. For the record, I know that sounds ridiculous but we all have our quirks, right? Finally, I put on the skirt this past weekend while temps were in the 90s for a celebratory dinner with Alan. I think I asked Alan about 100 times before we left for dinner if it was too short or too tight – obviously, his answer was no (I’m not sure what man would say yes!). I paired the outfit with strappy nude heels to make my legs look longer, since I was feeling adventurous and thought “why not!?” This was a good test because I did feel like a pretty woman all night, plus I think I look good in a mini.
