-What I'm Wearing-
Peach Blouse - Laura & Jayne (1983) - from my Mom
Pencil Skirt - Made by me
Tan Wedges - Target
Pearl Earrings - Gift
Cameo Necklace - Portobello Market, London, UK
I'm so excited to be wearing this blouse! Why, you may ask? It used to be my mom's. She received this blouse for her nineteenth birthday back in 1983. I have owned this blouse since I was around the age of eleven, or twelve. But I was only able to wear the blouse for a few years. The blouse looks best with a skirt that sits on your waist, or higher. And for the longest time I didn't have a skirt that fit that requirement - until now. I paired it with my favorite, and only, denim pencil skirt, wedges, pearl earrings, and cameo necklace. My outfit has several sentimental pieces in it. Blouse - was my Mom's. Pearl Earrings - received for my thirteenth birthday. Cameo Necklace - bought at Portobello Market in London last year.
I also forgot to mention, the blouse reminds us of one worn by Shirley Temple in The Story of Seabiscuit (1949) and by Jean Arthur in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). Both of which are favorite movies of ours, but that is for another day.
This evening, my mom, sisters, and I attended Mrs. Morecraft's School of Elocution & Composition (Webinar). It was most delightfully fun. I don't know if I can wait until next week for the next class. =) Are any of you taking the class?
I've been busy sewing mock-ups for our SAICFF formals lately. Tomorrow I get to start on one of the real dresses. You know, making the actual dress. =)
