Coat Dress...


When I was a teen, I used to sing in the church choir.
I was a member of a small church that couldn’t afford choir robes.
So for musicals we wore the same color.
One time it was Red.
And we wore a scarf pinned to our red ensembles in that shade as well as other complementing colors.

I did not have a red dress and my mom, ever so frugal, was not going to buy me one just for one event.
We wore the same size, so she let me wear one of hers.
The dress was a red A-line with double breasted buttons….Midi length.
Straight from the ‘80’s I bet.
My teen-aged self didn’t understand how to appreciate a good vintage piece.
I wasn’t meant to.

And Now…

My friend was kind enough to take some snaps of me while hanging out before church this past Sunday.








She is from the city that I’ve come to know after two years of living here. So she introduced me to some nooks and crannies I didn’t even know existed.








Which made for some scenic pictures.
