On to the evening attire. My frame of reference – look in the closet the day before and pull out a dress. I KNOW I need to put a little more effort into my fashion sense. Even though I have none, my girls certainly badger me with a thousand questions…”does this look ok?”, “does this match?” Why me?????
My mom insisted on finding a dress for me because I was going to wear a dress she bought me a couple years ago. Well, one day she brought home the exact same dress with a different label. I laughed so hard and told her she finally found one that worked! If she didn’t remember what I wore, I guess it was ok to wear it again!
Back to the girls. They had a hard time finding things. My mom, who loves to shop, kept bringing dresses home for them to try. Annie paid for the above dress – a lace-covered “bum dress” that Mom found for $15. It looks really cute on Annie, but am I being hypocritical? I teased her about it but she insisted it was “grandma-approved.”
The green dress was found with the help of some dear, dear friends. I love the tiered, flowing fabric and the lovely green. I think it has a bit of 20’s flapper influence, don’t you?
Which is funny because the recent patterns by BurdaStyle were inspired by the 1920’s and I love them! This Mondrian inspired dress would be really fun for the girls!
This one combines the modern color-blocking with the soft fabrics and drop-waist of the 20’s.
I love the tie and look of this dress!
You can see all their Roaring Twenties Patterns here.
So what do you think? Am I a prude? Judgemental? Fashion freak? All I gotta say is, just wait until you have teen girls!
