I don’t know if I’ve got some faulty wiring up there or something, but the answer to “Is this too short?” will always be and enthusastic, “Hell no.” Who likes short shorts? I like short shorts…and dresses and skirts, too. (Style Pro-Tip: Balance a leggy mini with long sleeves.) I like minis because they make you (well, myself at least) feel kinda saucy; flirty and femme and fun. And I rather like people who are flirty, femme, and fun…sounds like a damn good time to me. As I get older, I feel like there is pressure to become more conservative on matters of mini skirts and booty shorts. Like my peers, I feel like I should be questioning, “How can she wear that out in public? What was she thinking? No self-respecting woman would wear that…I mean doesn’t she want men to respect her?” UM…hold up. Sounds like the dudes problem to me. I can’t really get behind the attitude that if you are dressed like a ‘slut’ (ie. showing lots of skin) that somehow warrants men to treat you like shit? OMG epiphany…I’m not the one with faulty wiring…it’s dudes! Dudes, listen, every woman is fully capable of wearing Daisy Dukes and a bra top while at the same time ‘respecting’ herself and knowing that she has worth beyond her gorgeous physical appearance. We enjoy being sexy and being intelligent individuals...all at the same time. So regardless of whether we’re wearing a Burqua or a string bikini…YOU can go ahead and just treat us all the same way you would treat every human being. (And ladies, it would be nice if we all did the same…don’t ya think?) Even if our mini skirt does make you trip over your words sometimes ;)
