Skirts VS Dresses-- Revisited

We''l it seems to be a draw between the skirt and the dress. And since you asked, I'll let you in on our preferences:

I'm all about the dresses, especially ones, that fit nice and snug around the waist and flare out after that. Think Marilyn Monroe. Oh yeah. To me, they're more comfortable because you never have to worry about your lower back showing or taking itty bitty steps. They flow :) Also, a dress always seems to cover up your knees better when sitting down, as opposed to skirts. Dresses are pretty and feminine and definitely overpower my "Sunday clothes" choices.

Now, don't be offended, I like me a skirt, but if I had to chose, it would definitely not be my choice. Yes, skirts are very versatile (everyday to formal) but so are dresses. But for some reason, my husband does not appreciate my large variety of dresses in my closet.
For example (which brought up this "argument" in the first place):

Me: Sweetheart? Since we're going to your friend's wedding reception, what do YOU want me to wear?

Him: Hmmm, I don't know... That's hard, let me look...

Me: (anxious to finally find out which dress he likes best) Okay, no rush

Him: I like this the best. Wear this (as he pulls out a simple black pencil skirt and striped button-up shirt from JCrew)

Me: Seriously?!? That's what you pick?

Okay, now seriously, that's what he picked for me to wear? Out of all of the pretty dresses I've made that fit me like a glove and make me look like Grace Kelly, he picked "business casual".

Case closed. I married a lunatic.

Skirts VS Dresses

Okay, I feel bad that I haven't posted ANYTHING in like two weeks, but we've both been sick and it's hard for me to blog without a picture. I desperately wanted to take a picture on our date last night, but it's no fun to take one of yourself and Adam DID NOT want to take a picture!

So instead of posting about our life now-a-days, I have a question. Which do you prefer? Dress or skirt? Now, you can have mixed feelings (you love the look of dresses, but skirts are more comfortable... or maybe like dresses for more fancy events and skirts for everyday) but it doesn't matter. I just want to know what you think. We've had this arguement in our house for a long time, because it's the only opinion Adam seems to have, and it's opposite of mine. So what will it be?

Dresses? Or skirts?
