I read an interview with Ellen Barkin and she was giving her advice on being sexy and fashionable as one ages gracefully. She said there was a big difference between dressing sexy and dressy appropriately for one's age. She then went on to say that someone over 40 should never show their knees in anything!!! I was like "What!" I have a few skirts that are above the knee that I don't feel are too short. Some are right at the knee, some are about an inch above the knee, and there is one that is pretty short, but I wear during the summer. What do you think? Should we really be hiding our knees after the age of 40? That seems ridiculous. In fact, the black skirt I wore on the Disney Cruise with long black boots came to about an inch or so above my knee.
