I thought I would share my thoughts on The Art of Dressing Like a Lady...not just for special times or occasions, rather, the purposeful art of dressing beautifully and femininely each and every day. We add beauty to our homes and our gardens,why should we not consider ourselves?
When I speak of dressing like a lady, I am referring to the grace and charm that shines all about you without regard to your pocketbook or circumstances. It is entirely free for the taking, requiring just a few thoughtful moments each day.
Now, I am not a beauty by any stretch of one's imagination but I "feel" much more beautiful if I am wearing something modest, feminine and ironed (I just don't care for wrinkles) as I gently go about my day. I feel so much more "put together" if I coordinate my outfit from top to bottom. Lastly, I enjoy curling my hair, wearing a "titch" of make-up and putting on a fashionable pin.
I share this message as an encouragement not to let society "norms" rule our hearts. We are ladies...what a lovely, God-given privilege that is....let us embrace it with fervor and delight!
If you have posted about femininity or modest dress on your blog, I know that my Readers would love to visit you...please don't hesitate to add your blog address to your comment.
Yours so kindredly,
P.S. This is another jumper from my favorite new pattern! I made this one out of a washable wool blend...warm and cozy...with just a bit of trim for my Victorian passion.
