It's sad when things end, sometimes.
Like dresses. I have noticed a tragic trend in dresses for, well, my entire life. The trend is this: they end too soon! Cut off, without a chance to continue a full life, they rest, abbreviated, at around mid-thigh. This isn't a good story. It's a true story, though. Even today, look at some of the more respected women's outfitters, such as JCrew or Ann Taylor, and you will see what I mean. Even skirts are not exempt from these abrupt, unfinished conclusions. I can only say that I hope dresses will flourish more in the future and go on to see their wearers' ankles, to the tenth generation!
