|Girl with Curves - this is what I mean!|
I've been tempted lately by the new high-low skirt and dress styles. And I kept feeling guilty about it, mostly because of the GFY girls' scathing comments about "mullet" dresses. But, I had a brain flash the other night when I was looking at a magazine. I like this style not because I want a short front, but because I want a skirt back that covers the entire area I'm sitting on when I sit down. I don't really want to have to worry about being careful when I sit, to make sure that my skirt hasn't ridden up my thighs to crotch level. It's not really that I'm super modest, I'm just overly lazy and often cold. This is a style that is just coming in, and my beloved Simple Be doesn't have one yet. Grr. Others that give you an idea of what I mean:
|Dorothy Perkins, only up to a size 12.|
|Topshop, also only up to a size 12.|
What do you guys think of this look? Luckily, it's simple enough that when we get Jen's sewing machine set up, she could conceivably hem a skirt I already have for me to try out the look.
