Hi Mika, we’re both realizing we can “pull-off” the mini skirt look at the same time and age. I got my first two late last autumn, same style just different colors. I felt confident that they looked good on me, so I decided I wouldn’t pass over minis as I had done in the beginning years of building my wardrobe. I’ve added 3 more minis in the past 2 months. I’m a little more conscience of the skirt length of minis than I am on other skirts. The 5 that I have are 17 inches from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the hem, I actually measure them.
I posted a comment in another forum about minis, that I might consider going 1 or 2 inches shorter; I don’t think I’d feel comfortable wearing any shorter. Of course, I’d need to try on any new mini to be sure.
