I just love the above quote because it is so true. I believe looking nice is just a visual courtesy. I remember when I was a teenager I purchased a tee shirt with an anti-religion sentiment printed across the chest. My father, who never took an interest in my wardrobe, said I would be wearing that tee shirt in public over his dead body and I needed to go up and change. I obeyed him but I thought he was being absolutely ridiculous. Looking back on it now I realize that the shirt could have easily gotten me into a world of hurt because what was printed was downright rude and I am sure someone would have read it and taken offense. It was a very good lesson in the idea that you are what you wear. If you want to be treated with kindness and respect then you need to dress with civility and not wander through the grocery store in pants with a ripped bottom.
It was an eclectic week here on The Glamorous Housewife. I wrote about topics ranging from gardening to introducing a new music series written by a guest poster. I also introduced you ladies to a fantastic Etsy jewelry store, and I even wrote two fashion posts (here and here). I also want to make sure you all enter the Craftsy Contest I wrote about at the end of this post. I am taking a Craftsy online class and it is amazing so I want to be sure one of my dear readers wins a free class as well.
It has kinda been slow when it comes to links I think you dolls would enjoy, but I scraped a few together and I hope you enjoy them.
Did you hear they found the worlds oldest face cream in London? Seriously! Check it out here.
I love it when I randomly come across vintage images while reading mainstream media. (here)
I don’t wear perfume (I know, totally shocking! But since I had babies it gives me a headache.) but I was fascinated by this Dita interview (here) where she discusses how she created her own fragrance.
I leave you with your laugh of the week. Cats that look like pin-up models! Hilarious! (here)
