Catching up!

Yeah, I know. I didn't post last week's fashion report. But I can explain! It was our church's VBS last week and I was completely exhausted and busy too. So, I kinda forgot. But you guys and girlz can forgive me, right? Of course! Life has been so busy! I'm going on a Teen ACTS retreat this weekend and I leave on Monday for a girl's youth retreat. Then I have debate camp in August and a possible family vacation to the beach in September and another possible trip to Iowa for a wedding. Somewhere in there I'm going to try to fit in time to sleep and eat. Oh, and maybe a few sleepovers. Whew. So, what are all your plans this summer?

Fashion Report: Rompers

This week's fashion report is about rompers! Yes, I know. It sounds like baby clothes but really, it's all over the place!
Here is a picture to give you an idea. Rompers are basically a shirt and short set connnected in the middle.

They are usually made strapless or strappy but are also worn short sleeved as well.

To dress a romper up I would wear dressy sandals or flats. To dress it down, I would wear casual sneakers. Hope you all enjoyed the post!

Fashion Report: Regency Era

Time flies so fast. I nearly forgot about this post today again! This week's post is about the Regency Era.
This gown is an example of the styles worn during this time period. The typical gown worn by women of this time period was high waisted and usually low cut as well. The sleeves were also usually long and the hemline, of course, came down to the floor.
For those of you who are familiar with Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice, this picture is from the movie Pride and Prejudice. From left to right are Jane, Kitty, and Elizabeth Bennet.

Notice in this picture how the women also wore little jackets and bonnets. The more flowery and lacey the bonnet, the better!

I hope you girlz and guyz enjoyed this post! Comment and let me know if you like having pictures! Thanks!
