It's funny how shows and editorials influence you--the way you fall in love with a trend just from seeing is so many times. Peplum had that affect on me; I wasn't interested in it at first but evetually it grew on me. Similarly Mad Men's new season swinging into the late 60s and the emergence of itty-bitty mini skirts on screen is getting me to embrace the mini. I like shorter skirts, but usually I avoid ones as short as this. But something about seeing Megan or even the Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce secretaries sashay across the television screen in a skirt that barely keeps them covered makes me feel more bold. I got this dress last summer from Modcloth, but really only started wearing it this spring--for all the reasons I mentioned above! :)
