Short Skirt/Long Jacket

Subtitle: Short Skirt and a Loooooong Jacket

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what’s best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who is fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack
She’s playing with her jewelry
She’s putting up her hair
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket

I want a girl who gets up early (gets up early)
I want a girl who stays up late (stays up late)
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity (uninterrupted)
Who uses a machete, to cut through red tape

With fingernails (hey), that shine like justice (ho)
And a voice that is dark (hey), like tinted glass (ho)
She is fast (hey), thorough, and sharp as a tack (ho)
She is touring the facility (hey) and picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long, long jacket

La-la la-la la-la

La-la la-la la, la

La-la la-la la, la
La-la la-la la-la
La-la la-la la, la
La-la la-la la-la
La-la la-la la, la

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation (smooth liquidation)
I want a girl with good dividends (good dividends)
At Citibank, we will meet accidentally (meet accidentally)
We’ll start to talk when she borrows my pen

She wants a car (hey) with a cup holder armrest (ho)
She wants a car (hey) that will get her there (ho)
She’s changing her name (hey)
From Kitty to Karen (ho)
She’s trading her MG (hey) for a white Chrysler LeBaron
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long, jacket

CAKE is amazing, by the way……

I have been trying to put an outfit together like this song for a long time and then it happened! Here is a short skirt and a long jacket!

March 4, 2023, the first Friday of the month, so you know what that means? The monthly party at the world class Cleveland Museum of Art! Me, a big part of it!

I enjoyed the preparation process on this rainy day.

And I was thrilled with the evening. I have no great tale to spin, just a whole bunch of compliments, quite a few drinks, a number of hugs and a wonderful evening!

There are days you feel almost powerful with your presentation. Days where no one can question that you are indeed a fashionable woman, days where you are openly admired for how you look. There are days where you cannot doubt that you are special, that this “gift” was meant for you. This was one of those days. I felt above judgement, questioning, doubt. I felt exactly right, exactly beautiful, exactly amazing. My smile, which you are probably sick of by now, was bigger, brighter, happier. It was a fabulous evening!

I will be at Keystone again this week. If you are going, reach out. Find me! I want to give any Kandi’s Land reader a big hug and if you want, the first drink is on me!

Kandi’s Land Update: Awesomeness is forthcoming! I had a meeting last week with the amazing woman reimagining this place and she blew me away! April 1 is the planned launch date. You may have noticed some subtle changes and many more are coming. We will look more like a buffet of options than the newspaper-like format we now have. Our amazing Contributors will be featured even more and many of the great pieces currently buried in the archives, will be more readily available. I will also be looking for your input. In the opposite of “Field of Dreams”, if you will come, I will build it.

  1. Kandi,
    As you know, I too love wearing a shorter skirt while out. You and I have the legs to make it work.

    What a tremendous look in that outfit. Well done.


  2. Love the outfit, Kandi, now that song will be in my head all day long! Have a fabulous time at Keystone, wish I had the opportunity to join you all.

  3. Hi girl friend,

    You are indeed just as you stated in your post. Pretty, beautiful, amazing….all of that and more.

    HOWEVER, as a bouncer I don’t think you make the cut. I just can’t see such a gorgeous feminine woman physically enforcing the ‘no food or drink beyond this point should some dastardly person try to get by with drink in hand. But if this is not the case, then I apologize profusely and humbly request your forgiveness. Because I want to keep my prettiness 😂

    Trish ❤️

    1. It’s funny, I have been doing this for about six years (with that pesky pandemic thing shutting us down for a while) and now I just have to look at people and they smile spin around to finish their cocktail. If I had to give all of my Kandi activities up but could keep just one, this would be it! Thanks my beautiful friend!!

  4. Love the outfit, one of your best looks
    And whoo girl your arms are fabulous
    Looking forward to the updated format

  5. That skirt/top combo is so very attractive Kandi!
    One of these days in the near future I’ll have an article to post on the updated site.
    See you soon,


  6. Kandi , you look amazing and you carry yourself so well . And who could get tired of seeing your smile . I always loved that song just changed the words so I was the one in the short skirt and long jacket! 🙂
