Knee-Length Skirts Are Back, Baby!

Make a Point of it Skirt by ModCloth

 

(buying via the affiliate links may result in Marcy getting more treats)

Cynthia:  They’re baaaaaaack!

Marcy:  What’s back?

Cynthia:  Knee-length spring skirts. I thought we’d be wrestling with mid-thigh skirts forever. My knees were getting so embarrassed.

Marcy (shuddering at the thought of Cynthia’s knees):  You think your knees were embarrassed, how about your cat?

Cynthia:  Well, you and my knees can rejoice because knee-length skirts is where it’s at. The beige chevron striped skirt I am wearing here is from ModCloth.

 

 

Cynthia:  It’s a cotton/linen blend. It sits at the waist and has pockets. It has a tendency to wrinkle (you know, linen) but not so much that I am put off by it. It’s super comfy, goes with everything and… it’s on sale for $34.99! Yeah, baby!

Cynthia performs a groovy skirt/sale disco dance while yelling “woot woot.”  Much to Marcy’s disgust.

 

 

Cynthia (still grooving):  Knee-length a-line skirts are always twirl-worthy and have a cool feminine 70’s vibe.

Marcy:  If you start singing Andy Gibb songs I’m leaving.

Cynthia stops suddenly. She takes a deep breath. She looks at Marcy with a sappy smile.

And then…

She scoops up Marcy.

Cynthia (singing an Andy Gibb song):  “I just want to be your everything…”

Marcy leaps off of Cynthia in a hissy fit and hides in the closet. She plans to stay there until Cynthia’s disco fever has ended.

Cynthia (calling after her):  Fine, Marcy. I don’t need to disco dance when there are knee-length spring skirts to buy!

Woot woot!

Okay, Awesome Readers, join me after the jump break for some shameless shopping for the best knee-length skirts this spring!

Marcy hisses.

Super Flare

  Cynthia struts into Marcy’s Nap Area grooving to a Bee Gees song, pretending she is John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Cindy Disco 2 (1)

Cynthia:  In keeping with the groovy ’70’s theme we’ve got going on lately, I thought I would mention that flared jeans are EVERYWHERE right now, Marcy! I am way cool.Cynthia starts to dance the hustle, waving her disco ball in the air.

Marcy:  Yeah, in your dreams, Cindy. Now get that disco ball out of my face

Cynthia (hustle dancing):  It’s true. Bells are back, Baby!Marcy:  You mean you are actually and truly on trend right now? Prove it.

Cynthia:  Well, first off – look at one of our favorite bloggers- Jenni of GnomeLover – in flares. She has perfected the modern day easy breezy California Girl look that Christie Brinkley made so popular back in the ’70’s.

Marcy (sighing):  She’s so pretty.

Cynthia:  I know. And funny. And sweet. And a super talented writer.

And look at another favorite blogger – Roxy of Effortless Anthropologie – in flares. Love her New York take on bells. Super cool.

Marcy (gasping):  She’s hot.

Cynthia:  I know.  And chic. And fiercely intelligent and driven. She’s THE definitive resource on all things Anthropologie.

And here’s my first ever blogger I discovered years ago. The cheeky and stylish everygirl – Kendi of Kendi Everday – in flares.

Marcy:  She is sooooo cute.

Cynthia:  I know! Love her. Her blog is super famous.

Even celebrities are wearing flares like crazy.


Marcy:
 Yeah, what?Cynthia (triumphantly):  So I know what the moral of this story is.

Cynthia:  If you stubbornly wear an item of clothing for years and years, risking ridicule and taunts and family members who won’t walk down the street with you – eventually the tide will turn and you will be “IN”. Ha!

Cynthia resumes dancing the hustle with her disco ball.

Marcy:  I still won’t walk down the street with you. I’m a cat. Not a stupid dog.

Jennifer Lawrence Goes To SAG Awards Dressed As Disco Ball

Cynthia enters the living room to find Marcy thoughtfully chewing on her toenails in a sunspot.

Cynthia:  Hey, Marcy. Look! Foxy chick, Jennifer Lawrence, went to the SAG Awards dressed as a Human Disco Ball.

Marcy stops chewing to take a look.

Cynthia:  It’s by Christian Dior.

Marcy:  So… what…?

Cynthia:  So … we love it.

Marcy (agreeing):  It’s very shiny.

Cynthia:  Boogie on down.

Marcy:  There’s a booger?

Cynthia:  No, that’s from a 1970’s Cool and the Gang song.

Marcy:  I don’t think it’s cool that there are a gang of boogers on her dress. Even if they are shiny.

Cynthia starts to say something – realizes it’s a fruitless endeavor – and grooves off singing disco songs.

Cynthia (snapping her fingers):  “Freak Out”. “Say Chic…something something… say… awww… Freak Out”.

Marcy (calling after her):  Yeah, that’s kind of gross. I’d freak out too.

Marcy resumes chewing on her toenails.
