A Portrait Of Feminine Dress, Part 1
The older my daughter gets, the more we realize how similar our tastes are. It has been a joy to thrift shop with her all these years and see how we both find the same things to be either attractive or something to give us a hearty laugh.
It has been interesting to observe the clothing trends through the last few years, and we thought it would be fun to share with you some of the things we came across in blogs and other places that we found to be beautiful.
What you will find are some of our favorite things~ a sampling from our own thrift shopping and others collected from all over the internet that we thought were seriously nice. From fancy to simple and down-home, we should give real thought to how we dress!
We will be keeping this simple. There are so many posts on the internet on the topic of modesty that we will not be discussing it right now. We just love being ladylike.
I can find no way to run this as a series since most of my focus is gardening and homemaking, but if you comeback every so often, I will put in the next installments as I’m able.
In the weeks ahead, we will do a day on just TOPS and TUTORIALS.
Cardigans are classic, and they are back! Pair it with a ruffly blouse (and maybe a belt) for a lovely look. We love this flower (here is the tutorial).
We’ll also have a day of ideas for ‘real life’ around your home or castle.
The idea of this post will be the classic sturdy woman in rural France! Wash and wear, practical, and easy.
A woman sets the tone in her home as seen in the fruit of her life. Let us be purposeful to bring beauty and cheerfulness in our words and attitudes. But more than any article of clothing we could purchase, a kind word on our lips and a twinkle in our eyes should not be a beauty secret.
How about ideas for running errands to the supermarket or elsewhere?
This appeals to me for its simplicity and classic line. Pretty and timeless, even in the city.
We will also do some dressing-up! Do you like to dress up for your husband and for the LORD?
This is the gorgeous, but modest, wedding dress that a friend of ours wore in her Texas wedding~~
Again, join us in the weeks ahead for some more ideas. Soon, I’ll share some pretty amazing tutorials for those who wish to re-purpose a tee with ruffles. See you then!

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
