I won this dress from The Vintage Housewife. I simply love me some gingham and cross stitch in a good ol' cotton dress. If I had a choice between a glamorous 1940's rayon dress and a simple cotton frock I would choose the cotton every time. This dress screams "wear white socks!" to me and it is a dilemma. Why? Well, because at 38 I feel too old to wear them. In my younger years they were a staple in my wardrobe. Of course I know I could still wear them, but I'm not so sure I should. I want to be graceful in age and never appear like I am trying too hard for youth. I did a socks and nonsocks photo and one from when I was actually young enough not to give it a thought.
What do you think?
