On Wednesdays We Wear Pink:
Portrait of Doña María Magdalena de Villaurrutia Salcedo Ortiz de la Torre y López-Osorio Terrazas de Fagoaga, Marquesa del Apartado con su mascota, Anonymous, ca. 1770, private collection.
Thank you Anonymous for asking for the full portrait of this lady (and her odd dog!) that had only appeared in the blog as a a detail of her weird lace fichu/collar. But look at her: she’s got all the lace, and pearls, two chatelaines (or clocks? who knows!), and a dog that looks like a small lamb. I am very confused.

Four inches Below the Butt
What qualifies a skirt to become Mini majority will say above the knees, Paris Hilton would say a belt but I say four inches below the butt— well at least that’s how I like my Mini’s 🤪. The 60s were all about the youth aka the Baby Boomers of the post-war in the 50s, they have now become teens/young adults. Baby Boomers now wanted nothing to do with their parents generational way of traditional living which included everything to Religion, Work, Sex and yup you guess it FASHION. Sound familiar ( Gen Z ) history does this weird thing where it repeats itself, an to understand why the Mini is still a iconic piece of wardrobe till this day is because every generation pushes for change an what’s the best way to show change — well through your clothing of course.
🎶If you wanna get technical clap ya hands🎶 Mary Quant wasn’t the inventor of the short skirt however she did name it after her car Mini — Mini is a car brand in the UK that kinda looks like a KIA you know the one those Guinea Pigs drive, anyways Mary Q. is from London UK an was already a well know designer with her shop called Bazaar locate on Kings Road at just the age of 21. Mary being young an seeing the clothes people were producing didn’t really line up with what she felt the youth wanted which led ￼her into designing her own clothes for her store. Bazaar was a store where you can go an hear loud music, have free drinks, see fun creative window display and it stay open later then most store — this doesn’t really sound as ground breaking but in the late 50s an early 60s that wasn’t the norm, your brand is to reflect you as a designer an many stores at the time sold mature clothing she was young an just wanting to have fun. You can definitely till that was her agenda with the Bazaar Shop. Mary has worn Short skirt for herself stating the reason for a shorter hemline is so she can run/move better in them. To give you a clear insight of what push for this sudden change in fashion was the fact of Rock n Roll and Birth Control. Women become more freeing with there sexuality — can you imagine the shock of the older Women an Men of the 60s seeing women young women take control of their body’s🤭 what I wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall in 60s chileeee you don’t even know.
Mary Q. Introduction the Mini Skirt to the London consumer in 1964 seen on the likes of the iconic Twiggy. Mary’s Mini came in different colors,shapes, and silhouette which what really made her stand out gaining more popularity. Mary Q. credits her customers for making the Mini so popular because they would come in request them in the different colors an sometimes ask for the skirt to be even shorter. It didn’t make its way to the US until 1966 when high end designer’s like André Courrèges and YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) would show them on their runway, Dior however wasn’t very fond of the trend. All Fashion an Vintage lovers have heard of or seen photos of the Iconic Mini Skirt Forever sign outside of Dior (shown in the photo up above in the left hand corner), Dior did not shown mini skirts that summer (most likely because every fashion house at the time only showed haute couture and had customers who were old) on the runway causing the woman of the “British Society for the Protection of Mini Skirts” to protest outside of Dior. I don’t know if Dior added Miniskirts next season but highly doubt it being that High end fashion houses started doing Ready to Wear in 70s and by the time we reach the 70s the skirts were back to maxi. Reading article after article on how the Miniskirt became a way for women to express their sexuality is so weird to me because it only seemed like if you wore a miniskirt you must be sex crazy. Sometimes people can confuse femininity with being sexual, sexuality or being sexual is an action where femininity is a feeling, you can easily show your feelings in your clothing. (not factual just my opinion on how I see it do as you wish) Miniskirt I believe are for any an everyone! If you don’t mind the shortness of it wear it — size truly doesn’t matter if you too love this style of skirt especially since it comes in different silhouettes you can find what makes you comfortable and have it look good on your body. Mini’s became more then just a trend it became TIMELESS!
I hope you enjoy reading an hope it all made sense I feel I was all over the place and never really got to the point it’s just Miniskirt rule and I love them.
Thank You 💋 Peace ✌️!

Regina: All men are at least 30% attracted to me. My mother cried the day I was born, because she knew she would never be better than me. At any given moment, I'm thinking about one thing—Aaron Samuels hunkered over eating dog food. I feel like I'm the Paris of people. I'm exquisite.
