Skirt power!

You all may recall my experiment with skirts and dresses earlier this year. Around that time I had a chat with a reader who wanted to re-incorporate skirts into her wardrobe, but wasn't comfortable leaping into it fully. I encouraged her to try it, and start with just one skirt-day per week.

I just received this note from her:

"I have been wearing skirts.  EVERY DAY.  At work (I'm a part-time preschool teacher), at home or trampling in the woods, I now feel more comfortable wearing skirts than pants.  Many thanks for inspiring me with your posts on the subject earlier this spring.  I feel like I've been transformed.  One of my co-workers (in her early sixties), whom I never saw in anything other than pants, has now started wearing skirts too.  On the street, if you see a woman in a skirt or dress, she's usually young.  Older women can get so resigned to wearing the same old thing all the time.

…Yes, fashion can be very powerful.  What we wear sends a message to others whether we realize it or not.  Thank you for the encouragement to go against the nap by wearing skirts.  I feel both more feminine and more comfortable."

Amazing. I am humbled.
