Knee-Length Skirts Are Back, Baby!

Make a Point of it Skirt by ModCloth

Cynthia:  They’re baaaaaaack!

Marcy:  What’s back?

Cynthia:  Knee-length spring skirts. I thought we’d be wrestling with mid-thigh skirts forever. My knees were getting so embarrassed.

Marcy (shuddering at the thought of Cynthia’s knees):  You think your knees were embarrassed, how about your cat?

Cynthia:  Well, you and my knees can rejoice because knee-length skirts is where it’s at. The beige chevron striped skirt I am wearing here is from ModCloth.



Cynthia:  It’s a cotton/linen blend. It sits at the waist and has pockets. It has a tendency to wrinkle (you know, linen) but not so much that I am put off by it. It’s super comfy, goes with everything and… it’s on sale for $34.99! Yeah, baby!

Cynthia performs a groovy skirt/sale disco dance while yelling “woot woot.”  Much to Marcy’s disgust.



Cynthia (still grooving):  Knee-length a-line skirts are always twirl-worthy and have a cool feminine 70’s vibe.

Marcy:  If you start singing Andy Gibb songs I’m leaving.

Cynthia stops suddenly. She takes a deep breath. She looks at Marcy with a sappy smile.

And then…

She scoops up Marcy.

Cynthia (singing an Andy Gibb song):  “I just want to be your everything…”

Marcy leaps off of Cynthia in a hissy fit and hides in the closet. She plans to stay there until Cynthia’s disco fever has ended.

Cynthia (calling after her):  Fine, Marcy. I don’t need to disco dance when there are knee-length spring skirts to buy!

Woot woot!

Okay, Awesome Readers, join me after the jump break for some shameless shopping for the best knee-length skirts this spring!

Marcy hisses.

Meet Merrie Of Petite Career Girl

Merrie of Petite Career Girl

Cynthia:  One of the best things about being a blogger is meeting new friends from all over the world. It’s awesome. It’s fun. It’s life affirming.

 Marcy:  Must you gush? Again?
Cynthia:  Marcy. I must. Because my newblogger friend, Merrie, is that awesome. 
Marcy:  Okay. Fine. Go ahead.

Cynthia:  So what do you think, Marcy?
Marcy:  She’s so cool! Do you think she would let me be her kitty?
Cynthia:  Merrie already has two cats. And besides, I am not sure she – or anyone else for that matter – would put up with your shenanigans and terrorist toe tendencies.
Marcy (eyes dilated):  You mean those little mice that mock me endlessly? 
Cynthia:  Uh oh.
Cynthia takes off to find some shoes with Marcy in hot pursuit.
