Because I love you, every veil from another Abrahamic religious tradition comment will be censored allllllllll week in honor of Mantilla Week.

So cool! If only I could get the wife to wear one...

I know, I know... it has to be HER devotion, but still, SOOO COOL!

Even tempted her with, "you can buy them in different COLORS!"

I have a one just like the gold one. I also have a green one, a red one and a hot pink one with crystals.

How do you keep them from slipping off? I usually just tie a scarf on my head (bandanna style) and use clips at the temples to keep it in place. The mantillas are more elegant and lovely though.

Sexy arms!
What thoughts.

I have three; one white, one black and one in purple.
All three slip off my head all the time. How does one keep them anchored?

Thom Curnutte said...

Blood and tears, ladies, or bobby pins.

Mary said...

I have teflon hair, and everything slips off, so I use hair clips. Bobby pins don't work well for me; they fall right out.

Have you initiated mantilla week with Junior Leaguers on purpose?

Some of the little old ladies from my childhood would leave these girls eating their dust.

Their Mantillas covered their heads, shoulders and their breasts.

My heart was captured and my soul surrendered when I saw my future wife in Church wearing her Reboso while praying the Holy Rosary.

I am looking forward to your next pictures during Mantilla Week.

What a great idea to feature something of our Catholic Tradition each week.

God be with you.

Thanks Kat for showing everyone how dumb they look. Good for you - you are very courageous to do this!

The answer to keeping the mantilla on is to actually have it cover your head, such as the lady in the picture with the white mantilla.

It's a veiling before the awesome God, not a fashion statement.
