Long in the Tooth - and Knee



My fading  orange legs and I have been shopping for a dress for an upcoming wedding. While I found several that I liked (and could afford) they are still in the store because they showed my knees.

My knees are not really offensive or scary but they are certainly closer to 60 than 50 and word is that you shouldn't show your knees after the age of 47.

I don't know who made this rule but I think it stinks.

So, because my knees showed  while wearing  the 'store' dresses I have decided to make one myself - one that is long enough to cover these not-to-be-seen knees.


Wish me luck.

Fingers crossed!
Personally, I would never wear a dress that showed my knees. But that's just me.

Good on you for making one yourself!

If your knees are not unsightly and the dress looks good. I say go for it. Some of those rules are just made up by old fuddy duddies. Just think how many beautiful fabrics and things would never have been made if people adhered to "blue and green should never be seen".
The key to looking good is to be confident and plaster a happy smile on your face. I hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding.

You wonder somethimes, though, if the stores realize that anybody over 19 might be shopping?
