I used to always assume that short boots shouldn't be worn with dresses because they can make the legs appear shorter. However, short boots have been so ubiquitous the past few seasons that I've gotten used to the look. I also realized something very important: I don't give a damn if my legs do look shorter. In fact, I quite admire the look of short, sturdy legs on other ladies, and it's not like I'm going to apply for a runway modeling gig anytime soon.
