To capri or not to capri

For a long time, I shunned capri pants. Like three-quarter sleeve shirts, they reminded me of all the times in my childhood that my clothes didn't fit (I was a gangly youth) and my mother tried to convince me otherwise. "No, your sleeves aren't too short, your wrists are supposed to be sticking out of them like that!" Even though I knew she was lying, there wasn't much I could do about it until I started buying my own clothes. I completely avoided the ankle-length pant trend. (Do you know any tall girl who wears them? Probably not, because we've all spent years avoiding the dreaded highwater look.) I finally succumbed to the capri trend and bought a pair of flowy black ones. But after looking at this website, I'm having second thoughts.

I shunned capris for years for exactly the opposite reason: afraid of looking too short and chunky. I finally broke down last summer, certain that no one would be wearing them once I bought a pair. Now I can't go back.

I wear capris... though my fashion industry friend Amy always tells me that I shouldn't, because they cut my legs off and make my shins look stumpy. But I can't help it, because I'm not allowed to wear shorts to work in the summer and full-length pants are too darn hot!
