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.

Dad would definitely have something to say about that. He is all about dresses. Funny thing is my husband seems to like skirts better too. He wanted to know why I keep buying the girls dresses. He says they are too dressy. I argue church clothes are supposed to be dressy, so I still buy dresses.

Since I am team skirt I must add that when you wear a dress and bend to lets say pick up a child on the floor and your dress is knee length you will show off a nice set of garment legs in the back to everyone at church! What covers your legs in the front will show stuff in the back! Ha ha...


hahaha that's so funny!! I love that dress too bad we can't wear tube tops... those are my fav showing alittle collar bone. Oh LA LA
