I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Long dresses

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I wear long skirts/dresses or jeans..
I love the feel of the floaty soft fabrics against my skin.

Since it is nearly spring I went looking through some stored clothes...ones that I love and cant bear to part with.I was so stoked to find one of my favourite long silk skirts from about 20 yrs ago,waiting for me :)

Well I put it on with some high boots cos its still a chilly wind and feeling a little glum I headed off to the mall to see whats happening.

To my surprise a young girl (18-20) came up to me in a shop and said OH WOW ...BOHO CHIC !!! I was like huh??? she said oh where did you get that skirt???,I want one!!
Haha...so it just goes to show you that if you keep something long enough you will come back into fashion:)

I never went out;)

I love finding what I thought was an old, out of date piece of clothing I had stored away. After a few years things come back, especially if you wear them a different way.

Alas, I'm so short, I look like I'm drowning in long skirts;)

Glad your back in fashion. I keep forgetting that as we approach Fall you approach Spring.

Ooooh...I love that dress. Since moving down south especially with the heat, they are so comfortable. My late husband thought women looked very sexy in those type dresses, just because of the way they flow with your body. The more I get to know you I realize we have ALOT in common. Great minds think and dress alike, lol...Have a great day...
