Short Ruffled Shorts 4

While studying last night, I decided to check Forever 21 for posting material. I’m really bad at focusing solely on studying math, so I tend to multitask by surfing the internet while doing practice problems. Yeah, I can’t believe it works either, but I’m going all Good Will Hunting on my trig class, so I’m doing something right.

I was trying to understand imaginary numbers (they’re not even real! They’re the Harvey the Rabbit of math) when I glanced up at the screen. It was a quick glance, a fleeting glance, just long enough for me to process that the model was wearing an absurdly short skirt.

I looked back down at my notes, then paused – that was a really short skirt.

With caution and dread, I took another look. It wasn’t a skirt. It was a pair of ruffled shorts. Because if there’s one complaint most women have about shorts, it’s that they’re just too flattering.

From behind, these remind me of those little swim suits with built-in skirts – you know, the ones that your great aunt wore to her water aerobics class at the YMCA, before the chlorine started to make her gout act up.

Or, on the other end of the spectrum, the ruffles create a look reminiscent of Sally Draper’s cupcake dresses.

These shorts are perfect if you’re trying to look creepily adolescent, matronly, or just bulky. How versatile. I love it when you can get different looks from one article of clothing.

    Do you know, it actually HURTS to process the fact that these things even EXIST?

    Also: You do practice problems the way *I* do…by doing EVERYTHING else!

    Yeah, I know, it definitely made my brain hurt a little to realize these were shorts.
