Today is the first day of my Week in Feminine Dress post. I probably won't have any action shots because my camera doesn't have a timer, so hubby will have to take them before he leaves for work. I will try to include how my daughters dress too.
Today I am wearing a linen/rayon blend dress I bought for $13 a few weeks ago! I've never worn a dress this style before and I like how it looks on me. The colors are a brown, red and khaki plaid and it's a bit scratchy so I'm wearing a nylon full length slip underneath. This is a 'going out of the house dress'- as today I am taking Leiah to her speech therapy, and, while most women there don't care how they look in public, I do!
I am also wearing some brown slide on sandals. I only wear shoes that slide on and off- just habit and no time to mess with anything else :) It's amazing how the camera adds about 20lbs to you too :( No makeup yet, maybe not at all, just depends. Also, my hair is down to my shoulders, but in summer it goes up in a 'claw' clip. I also use tiny claw clips for the front of my hair, and it sort of has an Edwardian look to it :) I really am Anne at heart.
Here are the girls. Amazingly I only bought two of the dresses, and they were from resale shops. I have been very blessed because almost all of my kids' clothes have been given to me or purchased at a very low price. I also try to coordinate their colors and mine. It just bothers me if we're not at least in the same color family. So we have a blend of red, white, navy and brown.
Aren't Leiah's glasses cute?
I must confess, it is 100 degrees today, and my linen dress wasn't as much linen as I thought. As soon as we got home it had to come off! So I am wearing old dingy maternity t-shirt and shorts because I will be scraping wallpaper off later. I did put makeup on though :)
