I am really getting into awkward skirt lengths. At first I started finding just-below-the-knees length appealing, then came mid-calf, and now the total no-no of all style gurus, just-above-the-ankle, is looking fresh to me. I bet this linen skirt is actually meant to be a maxi skirt, and when I bought it at Salvation Army this spring, I had every intention of hemming it. As I found the skirt today in my fix-up pile, I figured that I actually really like the way it looks with a bit of heel. I got the shoes at Hietsu fleamarket in Helsinki.
Come to think of it, everything I am wearing today is second hand. Yay for all-second-hand outfits! (Sorry about the wet hair, btw. I don't like blow-dryers.)
Two more things: first, really insightful and interesting comments have been coming in about cultural appropriation, so do check them out! And second, is anyone else having major trouble with Blogger not co-operating with Internet Explorer 9? I can't edit my posts at all, or even send out posts (!) with IE 9, but Firefox works fine. It seems like Blogger and IE 9 are not compatible, even though I've reset my compatibility settings.
