I like to think that tall girls invented capris. Believe it or not, there were even less choices in retail that cater to long legs than there is now. *GASP*
I remember when my mom discovered that she could get tall jeans for me at JCPenney. Of course she had to order them and they had to be mailed to us, that much hasn’t changed. Whenever I saw the UPS truck coming, I would call him the JcPenney man lol.
My daughter has a cute pair of capris that she wore to school today. When I saw them this loud alarm went off in my head yelling “FLOOD ALERT! FLOOD ALERT! FLOOD ALERT!” It took some time for me to calm down and realize that people wear their pants like this on purpose nowadays. I just can’t make myself do it. *shudder*
I’m actually okay with pedal pushers and bermuda shorts. I struggle with Capris and Cropped Pants… they just bring bad memories back to me. Why oh why couldn’t they be stylish back when I was in school???
So I would like to say thank you to whomever saw one us tall girls in our too short pants and thought it was cute. And to all of the rest of you average height women that are rocking the capris and cropped pants everyday, you’re welcome!
