Before you vote on a J.Crew corduroy color for me in my poll on the right, keep in mind that not only do I have this citron skirt, but I also have this one.
I think the above skirt can safely be described as a “vintage” Versace, if we define vintage as “that skirt length was perfect for me when I got it but might no longer be appropriate on a woman my age.”
Are you kidding? That skirt is perfect for you. And I think, if citron works, make it your new neutral.
La Belette Rouge says
It is appropriate for a woman your age who gets carded with great frequency.

Don’t worry–just put on a pair of opaque tights and go!
I changed my vote to Persimmon..stay with the brights!
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-I agree with Miss Cavendish, shorter length skirts are ideal with tights, this is how I’ll wear them too!
I got the red ones (http://style-spy.blogspot.com/2008/11/counterintuitive.html) and I LOVE them!
With your legs, you are OBLIGATED to continue wearing that skirt. Regardless of color. don’t forget how you looked in the Important Satellite Cape.
I voted for Sweet Potato, and I’m sticking with my candidate. Regardless of color.
I voted aubergine, but that’s only because there wasn’t an option for those of us incapable of making decisions…that option would read, “What the hell, buy one in every color and repent later…or don’t repent at all!”

Aubergine.. its so wintery 🙂

WB — if you are too old to wear short ?? then that makes me too old plus 10 years…
PLUS… with your legs / looks / body.. you can wear short for another 10 after me.. so the way I look at it.. that skirt has 20 more good years in it..
I love that color.. I call it catepillar guts green — and I have a bunch of stuff that color too…
I voted persimmon on the pants.. they will stop traffic!! xxoxo
See you at your ELEPHANT TRUNK SHOW..
I voted! Purple cords are awesome. Very royal-looking.
Prunella Jones says
Nonsense! You’re never to old to strut yo stuff, baby!
I voted for sweet potato. Love that color.
Please do not think me gauche when I say, with the utmost conviction, that if that skirt is the perfect length for anyone it is you.
Judging from the other comments – people want to see your gams. Why deny your adoring public?
Possibly creepy blog commenter
Oh pish posh, “appropriate on a woman my age”?! You get carded all the time! I think it’d look great on you.
Miss Janey says
It’a definitely appropraite for a woman with gams like WenbyB has.
Savvy Mode SG says
I think you can still wear it.
*Gasp* WendyB! Saying you’re too old to wear a skirt that you soooo could wear! Tsk tsk!
umm wendy you have the body of a 20year old if not better so shut that mouth of yours and rock this skirt again! Too cute! It reminds me of Cindy crawford for some reason

Aubergine if you can continue to spell it, sweet potato in all other circumstances. Oh my!
I am having the same issue. Cute clothes in the closet, abit too young to still wear. I have a skirt about this length in a brown tweed with leather accents. I love it. It seems to young for me now. sigh.
I still get carded, but not nearly as often. Maybe it’s a sign.
