A Week In Feminine Dress, Day Five

Here I am at last!! This day was rather a quiet day. I spent two or three hours working on my novel, weeded some, did some math, and generally enjoyed myself.:)

Here I am at the sink, washing dishes,,, an ever present job but one I find I can enjoy if I try hard enough.












I'm wearing the black, silk, blouse my grandmother handed down to me, and a paneled, khaki, skirt from Van Heusen. My brooch is from Grandma as well.

Then, wanting to be artistic, I darted to my room to slip on my black, suede, wedges and a lace shawl I found at an antique store. I cut a rosebud from our flourishing rose bush to add to the effect.

























The blouse















































The brooch

















My earrings....























I love the vintage feel of this photo. Thanks, Johanna!:)






















And because these photographs are so overwhelming lovely...










































Many Blessings,

Emma
