When I wear it I feel
- like a princess!
Now guess what kind if dress I mean- mini or maxi?
If you look at the picture of me dancing in the night of my birthday, you may easily guess I mean a long, fluffy dress/skirt. I love that kind of dress! But how many females will confess it today?
Today a woman is forced to wear mini or -at the most- midi. One can not work in the office in a long, comfortable skirt, and no way one can wear it as a sales manager – I guess in India it is still possible to wear sari for business occasions?
I feel that the mini serves only the lust of men, and not the comfort of women (especially psychological one!). A woman wearing mini is being immediately judged if her legs are not that perfect (and they are not with 90 % of ladies!) or – in a rare case if they are, she gets under attack of lustful male attention.
Is it a question of low self-esteem? Or being brain-washed?
It took me a long way to get free from the conditioning of my society: from an extreme mini which I used to wear at 20, through endless years of trousers (because the fashion of 90-ies did not favour skirts) to my enjoyment of wearing long, elegant dresses…
It is not that easy to withstand the pressure of surroundings in keeping a unique, feminine style. But there is a secret: just be beautiful! The power of beauty works wonders and even if your style is different from mediocre society, you will not look funny or strange if you keep to the true Beauty.
