I can still remember the excitement in the newspapers when Jean Shrimpton wore a very short mini dress way back in the early 60s.. she looked fantastic, what a pity though that it took on so well and we didnt have much else to wear fashionable , so all you seen was all shapes in very short skirts and not always a kind fashion to all..jeezo just had a look and it wasnt even short.. how times have changed...now at Ascot races, the ladies have to conform to a dress code of not too low, not too short dresses.

Men and women still must wear a hat regardless I think...and not dress casual.

That was a really fun article. It is hilarious that skirt was so "scandalous," since many women toda wear skirts/dresses that short or shorter to work.

That length is almost long.

I bought a "dress" yesterday from one of those trendy teen stores that came about 2 inches below my butt. I started laughing that it was labeled a dress, because I thought it was a tunic!

I do kinda' remember that! Looking at the picture now it looks so modest. Very soon hems were way up to the jay-jay!
