For me, it’s yesterday’s! I just think women looked more like women in the good old days. I can remember watching my Mom get ready to go out for the evening and it was just beautiful. The shoes and bags always matched, and while the gloves were probably a pain to keep up with, they looked so sweet. And don’t even get me started on the hats!
So, naturally when I started writing A Heart Made For Love, there had to be clothing descriptions.
“It was a deep rose taffeta with an almost, off the shoulder neckline. Mae had tried it on for Eleanor to pin for the last fitting and it had rustled like dry leaves when she moved.”
Can you see the color, hear the rustling as she moved across the floor? Good. Now wouldn’t you just love a dress like that?
