Did You See That?

My friend Joyce, a textile artist of the highest order, recently returned from the quilt show in Paducah, KY. (It's a big event, though I'm told the one in Houston, like everything in Texas, is positively ginormous.)

Photo ops were hanging from the walls
(paying a little homage to our college sorority here)

as well as strolling the aisles

If you can get past the shock of what this woman is wearing, take a minute and check out the lady standing just behind her.

"Either I've been at this damned show too long, or she has."

Leave me a better caption in the comments section.

Many thanks to the vigilant Joyce for allowing the use of her pictures. (And in the event the behooped and bequilted lady is from Lisle or Downers Grove or even Naperville, I felt it best to decapitate her. I know you'd do the same for me.)

How about:

"Man, I used to have a dress like that in the 60's........the 1860's."

Or . . . I had a bedspread that looked like that once!

I am so flattered that you liked my outfit enough to post it on your blog! My white knit shirt and pink pants were designed by Donna Reed in 1975. They are made of high quality polyester and feature embroidery on the front of the shirt which coordinates perfectly with the slacks. The outfit can be purchased exclusively at Woolworth's.
