On Graphic Clothing


A lady's wardrobe is discreet.  She knows that her chest is not a billboard, and would not wear clothing with words or pictures across her bosom any sooner than she would walk down the street in a sandwich board sign.  

Principle:  Because they are not discreet, a lady does not wear graphic clothes.

  1. I agree! It has been many years since I have had any clothes at all with graphics. I used to buy the kind that said the store name right across the chest. I thought that I didn't like that style any longer because it was too young for me, but I see after reading your post that it also isn't quite discreet. I like how you often help your readers to see things a different way, Nancy! Thanks for this.

  2. Hello! I recently found your blog through another blog and am delighted with these posts on being a lady. I have always tried to be a lady but knew there were areas that I could improve upon. These will be most helpful. Thank you.

  3. Yes. Thank you for this post, Nancy.

    (Isn't 'she' beautiful!)

    If you ever feel it's appropriate, we would love to learn more about you personally. I wonder 'who' writes these wonderful posts.
