Showin' some leg

Now if you're a RHNYC faithful you've heard all the chatter the girls have with Kelly about her short dresses this season (well every season). But they all seem so surprised by her leggy baring dresses. Have they not seen the trends the last few seasons?!





While in Florida in March I went to the Vineyard Vines outlet and tried on all styles and types of their classic dresses. I was a little bummed that we really didn't mesh well. Though it may have been less the dress and myself and more the fact I had to take a step back and face I was not going to be able to buy ALL of them. Or if i'm being perfectly honest, I may just be too old to pull off their dresses. For some reason they're all so damn short!

So I ask you this, am I the only one who is finding that the cute summer dresses are just a little leggy?

Maybe I just have to learn to be a little more graceful when well doing just about anything in this new trend.

If I had Kelly's legs I would wear the shortest dresses possible...unfortunately I was blessed with tree trunks.

Short dresses are adorable but it gets too breezy in the summer for me to wear & risk a Marilyn Moment!

I know this wasn't the intent of your post...but THANK YOU for the tip on the VV outlet in Florida! Going to Orlando this weekend and found it!!

haaaahah! This made me laugh b/c dresses that look that short on models tend to hit me right above my knee. I suppose this is because I'm short! Um, and not going to lie, if my legs looked like Kelly's I'd be rocking the shortest skirts I could find!

(PS- Love that you're blogging again! Tweets are fun, but nothing beats a good blogpost!)

Short dresses & short shorts are everywhere! Lilly & VV are guilty this season. Although I have an old Lilly dress that shrunk a bit & seems to short for my 37yr old self, so I've recently worn it as a tunic ;-) I do love dresses, skirts & shorts to be above my knee, but some of the hemlines are cutting it too close for comfort...and not everyone has the legs to sport that mini look!!!
BTW, glad you are back to blogging.... Waiting for a post about the new boat:-). Cheers!

I completely agree with you. They seem so short. I was worried it was just me.
