a new pair of patent leather pumps or buckle shoes.?
I'm dating myself when I say - I do!
Whatever happened to that practice, I wonder?
Easter was the day to show off your pretties. I remember going to church one Easter Sunday - I was maybe 7, and I had on a new (handmade by Mom ) dress with a crinoline... OMG! I was the height of fashion. I also had a hat much like this one...
In fact mine was exactly like this one. I had little wrist-length cotton gloves, brand new black patent leather shoes (that clicked on the pavement when I walked) and a white purse with ribbons and flowers on the front of it.
Oh it gives me goosebumps just remembering it!!
All the women were sporting new hats, and probably outfits too, although I was completely taken by the hats, most especially the ribbons on the hats.
