A friendly reminder…


February is a freebie, my friends, so the world is your oyster. Hie thee to a library/Kindle/smartphone and find some reading material that knocks your socks off so much that you’re inspired to dress accordingly.

As you know, this is Day 4 of my four-day weekend which means no OOTD. I do, however, have a lovely infographic I’d Pinned several days ago, and it gave Chessa such happy edification that I decided it was worth a share.

I challenge you to see if you’re familiar with all of these terms. I admit that minaudiere and ghillie threw me for a loop, but I’m proud to say I knew pretty much everything else.

Happy lifelong learning!

    Although there were plenty I didn’t know, I was surprised by how many I did. This would be one of those items for the Battle of the Sexes game ; )

    I’m surprised how many I knew. Not heard of Bush Pants- they must SURELY be from our Aussie friends?! The trumpet skirt was also intriguing! I am a little disappointed there is no flute skirt but I am biased. I do hope you had a lovely weekend. I will be replying to all the lovely comments left on my posts (will try to do this better but I’m never sure if anyone actually reads them!) as I have been away swing dancing all weekend and just returned from a charity/thrift shop tour today! Hurrah for TARDIS Tuesday! I am always SO excited to see what people wear. xx

      Just read your post about your swing dancing adventure and I’m so jealous of your life! Also, Aly had been looking over my shoulder while I read and she asked who you were and I said “My friend and her husband. They’re British.” and she said “I know” and I asked “How’d you know?” and she replied “Because he’s wearing a bow tie and he’s dressed nicely. All British people dress nicely.” Ah, from the mouths of babes! 😀

    Wow, what a lot to learn! I’d never heard of tanga, or a few of the others. Now I know I want a swing coat and a cossack top.

    • mtsedwards says:

      Oh, I can so see you sporting either one of those! Now the true test – if you did an eBay search for them, does it pull up what you want?

    I didn’t know all the names – it was fun! I’m 12 years old, because “back view” of the G-string made me giggle. xox

    Yay! I love this infographic!!!! 😀

    “Boa” Boot? Never heard that one. Isn’t a boa a feathered accessory favored by vamps?
    This very giant infographic is a good one. I’m still not sure if “A-line” is correct, but my Dior book is blocked by a mountain of, um, stuff. Google images was no help.
    I also wonder what the source is. My pin “originates” at what looks like an Asian Tumblr.

      ps: Enjoy day #4 off! I’m calling in sick. They don’t need my germs at the “panty factory”. Exhausted from Palm Springs!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Yep, I wondered at the source as well. It does go to an Asian Tumblr site. Which explains why they have neither Oxfords nor brogues. (Kingsman reference. You MUST see it today, now that you’ve called in sick. Was PS fruitful?)

      Oh, I missed that “boa boot”. Think it’s a typo?

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
