She's A Lady

I wish more ladies dressed like....well, ladies. Today I went to run some errands with my mom and I was noticing a severe lack of ladylikeness in how women dress this day in age. To be fair, the amount of girls and women wearing dresses and skirts has increased as of late, but it's usually in the summer and it's always poor quality pieces. I rarely see women wearing skirts and dresses in the winter or fall. I was the only woman, that I saw, wearing a skirt today. I just think it's funny. It also gets you noticed. I usually gets smiles and second looks from men when I dress like a lady (which is pretty much always). I will stop ranting now.

I just adore these shoes. T-straps always make me feel infinitesimally more lady like. This skirt was my sister's and I have been "borrowing" it for the past 4 years or so. It's basically mine, but I suppose she could take it back if she really wanted too.

 I went to the post office, Trader Joe's, and Kroger's. I wanted to stop at Anthropologie and drool over their pretty clothes, but my mom didn't want to get out and walk around because there were droves of people at the mall today. It was probably the mild, partly sunny weather that forced them out of their caves and into the light. I'm making people sound like moles hahaha.

Hopefully tomorrow will be equally nice!

  1. I found your blog through Modcloth's style gallery and I must say that I love your vintage inspired style! This skirt is just lovely and I LOVE the shoes! Definitely a new follower :)

  2. Rant on, dear gal, rant on! I second your views entirely and am constantly gobsmacked by the lack of feminine (or even non-gym wear) attire that one sees in most settings these days. Last weekend we were at the grocery store and saw a middle aged woman in a simple, but lovely, floral print sheath dress with a wrap that matched one of the colours in her dress, and Tony commented on how "You just don't see that very often (meaning nicely dressed women in places like the supermarket) anymore, aside from you". He was spot on and I too took notice of the fact. She stood out, in a thoroughly good way, and really embodied the spirit of (modern) feminine dressing.
