    I’m OK with most of the DO’s and DON’T’s except the embargo on over-the-knee boots. What’s wrong with protection from the snow, slush and cold? May I add that you seem to agree with this functionality despite the slashed circle, so why the ‘thumbs down’? And if she also deplores ‘super-mini’ skirts, she should be pleased that the more leg covering the better. I see this look all the time in Chicago.

    I’m not giving up my brightly coloured tights. But this may just prove that I’m several years behind on the fashion trends.

    this is quite funny saying what you can and cannot wear.
    I def disagree with the ‘no’ on over-the-knee boots and mini skirts/dresses! :) Those two actually go pretty well with each other.
