Oprah was wrong about shorts.

Back in the 90s, Oprah told me (and the rest of America) that "shorts don't look good on anyone." I took this to heart and very, very rarely wore shorts again until I entered adulthood and stopped giving a crap about what other people thought about me, Oprah included. Truth is, everyone can look good in shorts, you just have to find the right pair and feel good in them; a pair of killer heels won't hurt either.

Not only can everyone wear shorts, you can even wear shorts in the winter, in Chicago.

Why not? You'd wear a skirt and tights?

My dear friend Redgi of reFINDefined is coming out with a new winter shorts line that will knock your socks off.

He asked myself and a few other Chicago-area fashion bloggers and stylists to model the line at a shoot this past weekend. It just goes to show you, truly anyone can wear shorts. None of us are models and most of us are much more comfortable on the other side of the camera. Anything for Redgi Woods. Thank you sir for a great day of fashion and new friends.

All of the shorts I haven't already bought will be available at both Comfort Me Boutique locations starting next week!

Lincoln Park Location:
