TOO SHORT?












As days pass, summer is almost here. Like all fashionistas, I already started browsing the internet for new clothes. That's how I came across the shorts section. I got excited to see all the prints, colours and shapes, but after a while I asked myself a question - How short is too short?

In 1930 Marlene Dietrich was the first to wear hot pants in the movie The Blue Angel, where she played a club singer. Since then, these extremely short pants had had a bad reputation, being associated with cabaret girls and prostitutes. Even though women started wearing them on the streets since the 60's (and they got very popular in the 70's) their reputation didn't change. As much as I like them, it seems impossible to wear such revealing pants here in Bucharest. Maybe at the seaside? Or maybe I can pretend I'm Kylie Minogue or one of the Salt-N-Pepa girls. Don't worry..it was just a joke! But who knows..stick around, you might see them in a photoshoot!

  5. Don't worry, I also think that's too short. I see many girls in summer over here wearing very short shorts, but I think they're too revealing for me. I would never wear them so short, because that's out of my confort zone. But hey, it's just a matter of likes!

    By the way, I’m hosting a giveaway in my blog: a very unique totebag from Romerobags. Feel free to participate in http://diaryofamoderndaylady.blogspot.com/2012/03/modern-day-lady-first-giveaway.html . Good luck!

  7. This really is the eternal question isn't it? I think it's tricky with high-waisted shorts, but to each her own-- I feel most comfortable when the hem hits my fingertips.

    BTW, I'm Sara Antoinette of The Technicolor Dream Shoes. I look forward to following you and I hope you will do the same :)

  8. Too short is when you can see the beginning of the butt curve. The idea of some shorts is to coverup the buttoks, right ? And in my opinion, they should only be in combo with flowy blouses of funky t-shirts, never tiny tank tops.
