Bug_SoS 's Thoughts:

I put my credit card in the hands of my readers and let them decide whether I should buy the new American Apparel leather mini in teal or in orange. Personally I was kind of up for the orange but the clear favourite was the teal.

It sparked a little debate about whether you can wear a mini without looking trampy (course you can!).Of course a leather mini has oodles of sleaze potential, but you need only take a few precautionary measures to avoid it realising that potential:

1 – Wear appropriate underwear (perhaps I should have started with ’0) Wear underwear’, but I don’t think Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan read this blog). You need a pair of knickers with good coverage – no thongs please – because there’s every chance you might have to get in a car, get out of a car, walk up stairs, walk down stairs, walk, sit down or stand up, and there’s no need to put on a show.

2 – If you’ve got your legs out, keep your boobs under wraps. One of the oldest rules in the book. No further explanation needed.

3 – Make sure the damn thing fits well. Sorry, but if it’s too tight, you might as well wander around with a bullseye stuck on your backside.

4 – Think twice about heels. I’m not saying don’t go there, just that flats or boots (and I mean flat boots) might be a little more decorous if that’s what you’re aiming for.

5 – Unless you’re dressing up as Cher from Clueless (which you shouldn’t be doing outside the boudoir anyway) don’t wear anything over the knee – wear tights, or go bare-legged.

6 – If you’re going bare-legged, make sure your legs aren’t covered in scratches or bruises. I play sports and unfortunately am constantly having to cover up because I look like I’ve been beaten up.

You kinda make bith looks look classy- maybe b/c of the "back off" expression on your face on the "trampy" photo! Love it! :)
