Fashion Show

Today finds Nan, wearing a summery white frock with three-quarter sleeves, a pretty satin sash, and lovely dark hat with a light band, posing with her sister, Nelle, and a very pretty friend that I am unable to identify. Nelle, looking very sophisticated, is wearing a chic dress with a three tiered skirt, many buttons, and a dark belt. Her hat is beautiful and features a very large floppy brim and a pretty band. She looks to be carrying gloves. The pretty friend also is wearing a white frock that features a two tiered skirt and a lovely wide sash made of a printed fabric. She is hatless so we are able to see her cute hairdo. I always wonder where the girls were going in their lovely outfits. In front of the front porch at the Pearce home was a favorite place to take photos, and I appreciate those photos more all the time. Hope you enjoyed today's show.

It is kind of sad the way we wear jeans to restaurants and casual clothes to outings that use to require skirts and ties on men. The full suits that my dad use to wear daily to work are now replaced with a dress shirt and tie with out suit coat and even an occasional golf shirt polo is allowed into the office work area now days. When i started working in the classroom we wore high heals and skirts daily then it when over the years to slacks and flat shoes. Oh well.

Love the 'old' way tings used to be. We are truly a very casual society ... One day I went to a wedding & was stunned to see bermuda shorts & flip flops on a guest ... that was over the top. TTFN ~Marydon
