Here is a lovely cotton and embroidered dress from the 1950's, just perfect for spring.
I decided to wear it today when I went to lunch with my two daughters.
The sweater I picked from my own closet didn't work, so I borrowed this olive one from my younger daughter (the one who picked out the Rooster suede booties).
This dress is too short for me.
It makes me very uncomfortable.
I am from that generation that believed knees should be covered at all times.
I still do.
My youngest LOVES this dress. She is a PICKY fashionista but this one suits her just fine.
I will hand it over after I let down the hem a couple of inches.
This photo demonstrates why models need l o n g legs and why a 5'4" model would never make it on the runway.
We had an amazing lunch at Broadway Cafe, a vegetarian/vegan eatery in Atlanta.
Loved the Thai salad!
So here is what really happened with my outfit at lunch…
I couldn't stand the thought that my dress would show my knees and knowing that sitting down makes the dress raise up even higher made me run upstairs and slip into this silk dress from J. Peterman at the last minute (while the girls were waiting in the car).
I kicked off the Roosters, stepped into the beige flats and I was out the door.
I was comfortable and happy during lunch and my knees were not an issue.
Yes, of course, my gloves are in my purse.
I didn't have a chance to put them on before this picture was snapped.
See you next time!
