But I thought I'd join the fun again this week.
So hold onto your hats, because here's my killer ensemble:
No wait, that's Sybil from "Downton Abbey," not me. Not me at all. Just kidding. Here's the real outfit I wore to church today:
What I actually wore today is this:
Wrinkle-free jersey dress: Dress Barn
Lace-trimmed cardigan: Spense Knits, from B.J.'s Wholesale Club (at 70% off retail price)
Flesh-toned opaque tights (great for hiding varicose veins): Wal-Mart
Comfy flats: Mootsies Tooties, from a shoe outlet
Clip-on flowers for shoes: Target
|Dress detail (my favorite part!).|
|See how the clip-ons really dress up these flats?|
Oh, and one more quick thing: in my last WIWS post, I mentioned that these days I wear a lace mantilla (or sometimes a hat, but of a less conspicuous sort than the one Cora is wearing above) whenever I'm inside a Catholic church. I tried to give my reasons for making this decision to veil, and I fear I did a very poor job of explaining myself. Recently, I saw a wonderful post about the subject on Jennifer Fulwiler's Conversion Diary blog, wherein Jennifer explained the reasons for and the beauty of the practice so much better than I did. If you're interested, you can check out this post titled "Notes from beneath the veil."
Now don't forget to head over to Fine Linen and Purple, to see some much younger and much more fashionable ladies than yours truly sporting their Sunday best.
