I just treat myself to a "foil" treatment in February for my b'day to get the roots to match the bleached ends. Works for me. And, my hairdresser is very good at making it look natural. I went to another hairdresser in the summer (the first time after my gal did the foil thing) and that hairdresser raved about how my hair bleached out so nicely!!!!Yeah--with Denice's help. And time spent out in the boat on Lake of the Woods.

How do you hitch up a sundress? I know how to roll the waist on a skirt.

I have a gauzy, floaty, floor length, elastic-waist, cotton skirt that I have been known to wear as a strapless dress - the waist pulled up over my boobs, but only at home.

Well, the neighbors don't know that, they think it's a sundress.
Your post reminded me of a dress I bought earlier in the spring time. I still haven't worn it. It looks to me like a vintage type dress but dh said it looks like something I would be buried in....our grandson said it looks like a night gown. I'm going to have to wear it before long as it is definitely a summery dress.

What matters is if you like it, don't save it, wear it!

A neighbor once told Hubby that women with big legs shouldn't wear shorts or dresses because it doesn't look good. Needless to say I wore shorts and dresses all the time that summer, big legs and all! Hubby loved it!!!

Hubby's comeback line could have been, "Not all women dress to please you. They dress for their own man and comfort."

I think Hubby's comeback was something similar to that. I did make sure to parade around a bit that summer!

I hope you wore jiggle shorts. The kind where the bottom of your buttocks hangs out and shakes as you walk?
