Another very elegant post. And yes, 'dressing up' seems to be a lost art.
Cora and I are addicted to watching movies and TV series from the 50's and early 60's (Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Twilight Zone, etc.) and its amazing to see how the women dressed then. And its obvious they are well girdled and sometimes a glimpse of a garter or stocking top shows up.
And while it may be a bygone era, when I take Cora out to one of the nice restaurants here in Seattle, you can be sure that she will be turning heads wearing her dresses, heels and seamed stockings.
I mentioned this on another blog, remember ladies slips? It was a wonderful thing when you got to catcha glimpse of a slip.These are lovely pictures of two lovely ladies, love the panties.
I would say the two lovely ladies in the pics are more like "well undressed". And I heartily approve of their choice of outfits!
THIS is why I love to dress up! I don't dress for others; I dress because when I do, I feel better about Myself. When I go out in public in 'full face', in my best lingerie under My clothes; my clothes carefully chosen, I turn heads everywhere I go, and I LIKE it. Partner has just discovered the joy of what he calls 'grownup clothes', and he loves it too!
