I have a confession. Yes… another. But I suspect I’m not alone in this one although it may sadly see me fall in your estimation a little. Umm… again.
I’m *ahem* prone to be a bit judgemental sometimes. And not in a ‘that person is a psychopath and best be avoided’ way.
Rather I can be judgemental in a way that besmirches my fellow human beings.
In this particular case I’m braving the wrath of the sisterhood.
Like women across the world (who didn’t ever expect a marriage proposal from George Clooney) I was stoked to see these headlines on the weekend….
However… then I saw the pictures.
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE this dress. But I noticed my first thought was actually more about its length.
And in the same batch of pictures there was this…
Now the lovely Amal is super-skinny so can pretty much wear anything, but I have to admit – all I could think was “But she’s a lawyer! And she’s in her mid 30s! She shouldn’t be wearing anything that short!”
Obviously I was conscious of these thoughts and pondered on them a little. Did I think the dress length was short enough to be skanky? Do I not believe professionals dress in super-short-skirts or dresses? Is it her age and the whole mutton dressed as lamb thing?
Perhaps I’m jealous. Or perhaps I’m a closet prude?
I remember having similar thoughts about TV’s Ally McBeal back in the day when debate raged about the length of her skirts. Of course that was more about what one would wear to court than to their hen’s party and the like. But still… you get my drift.
Do you sometimes find yourself getting all judgy judgy when you know you shouldn’t?
I know Amal looks great, but am I alone in thinking those dresses are pretty short?
Linking up with Trish from My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday.
