Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Speaking of Shopping

I don't think I could have gotten this at Nieman Marcus. I'm afraid I won't have a lot of call for wearing it here at home, but it shore is purty!

My guess is that about 80% of the Moroccan women we saw were wearing these. They are actually an outer garment, worn over clothes. Sometimes the woman had on a pair of tights-like pants that matched. Some were plain, some were absolutely beautiful. All were essentially the same pattern. Almost all women wore them with a head covering of some type. Boy -- could I use that on a bad hair day!

Our hostess, Patti, always wore one when she went outside. She had a couple of warm ones for the cooler days, and while I was bundled up in sweater and coat, she was perfectly comfortable in her jellabah. She also had a light one for summer time -- purple, of course!

I really rather like the jellabah. Covers up a multitude of sins, including, but not limited to, too much Christmas celebrating!!

And yes, in case you are interested, I defied convention and wore it to College Church on Sunday. So much for the assumption that we all have to dress alike there!

Yes, the jellabah shore is purty and so are you! :o) I bet you were a hit at church.

I have a couple of drapey dress/shirts, some of which are worn over flouncy pants. I wear them everywhere - church, store, park, etc. I find them very comfortable, flattering, feminine and modest. I think that mine are more indigenous to India and Pakistan.
