Diana, I can identify with you about the dresses. I had to wear them everywhere until I left home, because Daddy didn’t want me wearing pants. Your grandmother never put on a pair of pants, I don’t think—she was still wearing dresses when she was put in the nursing homw.

I do wear dresses a certain times, now, but usually can be found in jeans and t-shirt or slacks. For dresses, I have to put on hose and the whole “nine yards” of clothing, so it has to be a VERY special occasion to stuff myself into all that. Sunday morning church is one of those occasions, but very few others meet the criteria!

As for the length of the dress, I don’t go above the knees! That is something that I just never did, and I doubt I ever will. Your choices are your own, and no one has the right to say you HAVE to wear something else, unless there is a strict dress code for everyone! (Yes, in the services, I’m sure it is pretty strict, but I know that you do have some leniences, too.)

All in all, a good “rant” about women’s fashions! Thanks, dear one! Love you!

Are these women insecure about what they have to offer men, and so they choose to dangle the physical carrot in lieu of depth and quality?


I wonder if it’s competitiveness, in a way. Some women like attention and will dress however they must to get it. Others might not be as comfortable with the idea of dressing provocatively, but think they have to or else the floozies will get all the attention.

Like my brother pointed out once, it doesn’t matter what a man wears to the beach because nobody is looking at him anyway. Men at the beach watch the women, and women at the beach watch the other women to see what they’re wearing.

Can’t you just order clothes on-line and have them shipped to you? Once you know a brand and what size fits you, I’d think shopping that way would be easier than going out on the economy.

Handmedowns, haha! Remember the hideous creamsicle orange dress with the puffy sleeves and lace up the front? The one that was handed down from Susan to me to you? I think there is a family picture of you wearing it, and if I remember correctly, you did not look very happy about it.

YES! Did your mother tell you how “cute” you looked in it, too?

Mother wanted me to wear that thing often. I finally “lost” that dress somewhere in my closet* until I was certain I had outgrown it.

* I wadded it up and stashed it behind some toys or boxes or something.

I’m ashamed to admit, I think I actually liked it at the time. It is only in retrospect that I appreciate the horror. :)
