My Life in Monochrome

Monochrome memories from way back, when all my dresses were shapeless plaid shirtwaists,

Three for ten dollars from the Sears and Roebuck catalog. I was a thrifty kid, poring over the

Thrift section searching for the best buys so Mom didn’t have to. My brothers could own

Five striped cotton crewneck t-shirts for a bundled price, as well. I circled the best deals in

Crayon, then waited for the order to arrive, always hoping that at least one of my new

Dresses would surprise me by featuring a full skirt and a crinkly petticoat like Debbie Reynolds

Wore. Disappointment never interfered with my attempts to twirl in a simple cotton dress. 


My dresses were never this cute. ^^^
