Made sticky by pharmadancer (87219) on 2007-01-28 07:08:33 good post

This is what happens when Luthien has a 4-day weekend with no homework.

I was thinking about all those great posts that got lost under the flood. And sadly, some of them are gone forever and can't be found. So..I dug up what I could and put a bunch of links together.

And now...

PinUpGirl's Advice on Skirt Length

This is one of those posts that disappeared into the long lost archives of dance.net. However, PinUp was kind enough to PM me with the basic points.

*If you're tall, try to avoid miniskirts. They tend to look "more skanky" on taller girls. Try to stick with skirts that hit mid thigh or the lower thigh. They'll still look like miniskirts, but they're actually longer than a standard mini.

*A-line skirts are almost universally flattering. No matter what your bottom shape, they'll look good. They also tend to be longer and hit right around the knee. These are great for work or nicer events and you can still show off a little leg.

*Floor length skirts should only be attached to formal dresses. They're universally unflattering and you look like you walked in off the prarie. If you don't like your legs, go for a mid-calf length skirt, but beware. They tend to not look good on shorter girls.

P.S. If you have other post that need to be included, PM me with a link and I can add them. They're more likely to be noticed in this original post, than buried on a page of replies.

P.P.S. Sorry about the Rule Them All's. Karma to whoever can recognize that. ;)

Wow!

This is a really great post.Thanks!

I went to a couple of those links and found this statement:

1. Don't buy anything on sale that you wouldn't consider at full price.


I think that's a bad rule to go by.Why?Well,I honestly never buy anything at full price because it's too expensive,and there's no need...I also mostly shop at the Bonton which always has something on sale...

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

~J.R.R. Tolkien

Dude, i've known that for almost 20 years now ;) I cut my teeth on The Hobbit and love The Lord of the Rings.

Heehee, great title!

^Are you part of The Fellowship? Join! It's the huge thread on the General board.

I was thinking more about Legendary Frog's One Ring To Rule Them all movies, but hey, that works. :)

This post was made on 2007, maxi dresses in that time were out of fashon. But they were very in last spring so even me super short girl bought one, and I like how it fits me.
