Micro Mini: The Thrifty Tweed Skirt


“Clothes look best on tall women.” If you are petite, you’ve probably heard that several times before. Well, pssssh to that I say. There is one thing that petite girls can seriously rock and that’s the micro mini. They look short but not so short that you wonder if you are going to get an unwelcomed preview. Maxi skirts, knee-length skirts, and mid-calf skirts on petite girls are sure to raise a few eyebrows by onlookers (although, that has never stopped me before and it shouldn’t stop you either). But not the micro mini, it flatters petite legs by making them look longer and leaner, like they belong on a runway model (or at least a taller girl). Better yet, we can wear them just about anywhere because it doesn’t look inappropriately short. Night out? Shopping? Hell, just doing some grocery shopping? Throw on that micro mini. You know I’m doing it.

I found this audacious little piece at a local thrift store. It was surely getting passed by for probably being too risky, too mini, and even too improper. Luckily, I saved it from disapproving eyes and took it home. In fact, I took it all the way to Chicago for a night out on the town. Maybe there were sneers and maybe there were gasps. But I didn’t notice them and I didn’t care. It’s MY thrifty micro mini. Finally, a fashion advantage to being petite.








P.S. How gorgeous are these golden gates from The Palmer House? Chicago is breathtaking.
