"The dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines. It must accompany its wearer and when a woman smiles the dress must smile with her." ~Madeleine Vionnet
There is really nothing more feminine than a dress and dresses have returned to the fashion trend scene in a big way. My friend, Sacramento at MISPAPELICOS says that American women love pants too much and don’t wear enough dresses. She may be right. She pens her blog from Spain and always looks fabulous.
|Sacramento! One classy Spanish lady!|
One of my goals for the warmer weather is to have more dresses and skirts in my closet….especially now that I am feeling more confident in them. I had not noticed until recently that apparently since I gained so much weight, I stopped wearing dresses …in fact, avoided them at all costs. But, that is about to change!! I really hope to see the dress section of my closet begin to grow.
But, what do you think...do American women avoid dresses and favor pants too much???
"Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls;
Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in;
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall."
~William Allen Butler, "Nothing to Wear"
A FINAL NOTE:
I am headed to spring retreat with 200 teenagers (which includes
April Fool's Day, oh joy!) I will return to blogging this
weekend....if I have the energy left!!!!!
