I recall even as a toddler much preferring dresses and skirts to pants, myself... for a number of years in fact, I refused to wear pants, thinking they were not as fun as lovely skirts and dresses and far less pretty. Who would wear pants when you could wear a pretty dress or skirt? Yes, I may have been three/four years old, but had my own mind and style already. And as the years went on, and I eventually gave in to wearing pants (though they had to be stylish in my mind) I was so intrigued by skirts and dresses... A love and fascination with the Victorian era grew and I recall asking for a long black velvet skirt when I was about twelve years old for Christmas. Perhaps it was the flowery bottom or the way that when a person walks, a long skirt is so elegant? I don't know, but this love has not faded, and it seems that now, more than in recent years, pretty long skirts and dresses are abundant... are you a skirt and dress person or do you enjoy wearing pants more so?
