There is something truly appealing with tea length skirts and being from a certain group who’ve viewed this trend as unattainable I will be the first to tell you not to knock it before you actually give it a whirl.

Years I’ve lived with this notion until recently when a friend decided that would be the length I would have to wear in her wedding. I cringed silently hoping, like me and all other brides, her decision would change at least twelve times before the actual big day.
