Am I getting old? Is it just me?

I just can’t get down with the current length of mini-dresses. The other day while driving down Barrington Street, I saw a woman who looked to be of the reasonable sort wearing the tiniest dress imaginable.

Back to mini-dresses. Rouland Mouret is launching a line of mini-dresses just in time for the office Christmas party where you act like a tart and blame it on the sauce the next day. According to Elle UK, “The designer, famed for his now legendary Galaxy dress, has designed a range called ‘Rainbow’ under his RM by Roland Mouret label. The collection, which will only be available on Net-A-Porter, is made up of six mini-dresses and one mini-skirt, all in eye-popping colours.” provides a sneak peek…

Ladies? Weigh in please!
