Beauty in My Week...

Thanks to Lady Ophelia for sharing this wonderful idea of incorporating femininity and beauty in blog posts every week. I chose to do a classic-American-beauty theme for this week. You might recognize some of these actresses.

Being a full-time college student, you don't see true feminine beauty in your week. I guess being in a heavily male-populated area of study (audio production) doesn't help with that...*Sigh* But it is a rarity to meet young women who enjoy modest skirts, dresses, blouses, ribbons, hats, lace, etc. There's hardly any grace, style, or femininity in anything ladies wear today. It's either they try to see how much skin they can show or they go for dumpy comfort (aka wearing pajamas or gym/workout clothes to class). And, naturally, their attitude and personality reflects the way they dress. There's no elegance even in the way they hold themselves or relate/speak to fellow classmates.
Here's to upholding old-fashioned beauty!

These pictures are gorgeous! I'm right there with you on the "old-fashioned beauty" thing. I still have a lot of work before my wardrobe is what it should be, but at least it's going in a direction now. :)

Thank you so much for participating.
Oh the beauty of femininity and modest clothes, but so many don't see's really sad when you think about it.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
