"Because you're fine, and you're mine and you ....look so divine!......"

There's a meemaw somewhere who wants her dress back!  I just know that some sweet older woman, wrapped an apron around herself after church and commenced making biscuits in this dress.  I can almost smell her lilac perfume!  My husband told me I look very prim and proper in this outfit.  He even took my picture (something I rarely ask him to do). 

I've had this dress for a few months now, but just never wore it.  I even toyed with selling it.  But now that I've worn it; I love it even more than the day I bought it!  It's one of those dresses that's just sweet.  It's not pretentious.  It's not sexy.  It doesn't say, "Hey big boy, getta a load o' me!"  Not this sweet thing!  No, this dress slaps the rake in the face when he makes a lewd comment and says, "You CAD!  I'm a LADY for goodness sakes!"  And I'm sure if the dress had a hanky, it would be waving it in front of it's face as it begins to feel faint. 


  1. Loving the dress, super classy. and I am loving the changes you made to your blog, Looking Fab, all around!

  4. Yeah, for photographers. It is a very lady-like dress. Perhaps you should tuck a lace hankie into the belt.

  5. And its so relaxing isnt it to dress like a lady? Dont have to worry if this is hanging out or that, or if you offended someone or if you're not appropriate. Gutta have one! Get that hanky, Gf!!! Love, Paula
