Hey, I took a picture! Rarest of rarities!

Couldn't decide whether to post it here or under "cracking good day..." We are sailing for the (past and) next few weeks, and here is one of my normal sailing ensembles.


Oh, wow! And you're defying the laws of gravity in your cool outfit! Most impressed! :lol:

Some comments on the Dickies cargo skirt

Postby Bertino56 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:29 pm

They look good, but I would like to make some comparisons with the
Laura Scott 5 pocket skirt.
(1) The Dickies is noticeably "pencil." I might be wrong
about this, but the Laura Scott has more "A" flare.
(2) The Laura Scott is about 2" longer, a better length for me.
(3) I don't need cargo pockets with flaps. The LS has regular
open slot pockets, big enough for my wallet, keys, coins, etc.
Also, adequate belt loops.
(4) LS comes in more colors. I have four (black, navy, dark olive,
and light khaki).
(5) The most I paid for any of these was $15.99 (all at Sears).
Size 16, regular cut, is a perfect fit for me.
Nothing wrong with Dickies, but I just wanted to add my two cents.

Dickies products look good but sadly Dickies in Canada does not sell any skirts. Even searching the Dickies Canada site for "skirt" just gives a message like "did you mean 'shirt'?"

Grrr....

I bought this Dickies skirt a few weeks ago from amazon. I love it and spent some times yesterday wearing it. It is more pencil like, but not too constricting. I need to look at other colors.

I think you need to reduce the picture. To see your picture in full I would a video wall. :wink:

P.S.
Sorry, the image changed.

For sizing/editing pictures I use Irfanview. But sometimes you can not upload pictures on a forum. Only through an URL you can put pictures between your text. For that I use PostImage.
http://www.postimg.org

You can upload your sized pictures to the Post Image website and generate an URL to be placed somewhere in your text.

Our member Dave Had the opportunity to go to work in skirts and dresses. Some of the other members have posted their chances at going to work skirted. Like I have mentioned in the past I have my own office where I wear skirts and now dresses all of the time . I even have 2 clients that I can go to skirted.

I was looking for some more opportunities to go places and work with people I mentioned it on the cafe and some members said try charity organizations. If you are working for free they are hardly going to complain about what you are wearing.

I began thinking I am trying to work my way into going to church services skirted. Than I said well they are a charity and If I am helping out in the office in a skirt It I could eventually lead to my going to mass skirted.

I just came back from meeting with the office personal and I gave them my card and explained that I would like to offer my services

I too was hesitant about going to church skirted. But in the end, it was no different than going anywhere else skirted.

Why should it be? It's just people.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.
