thus concludes Mantilla Week...

... Mrs. Dinh Nhu Ngo, Vietnam's First Lady c. 1962.



... when I return to blogging on Thursday I will begin Liturgical Head Gear Week.

Little Girl's mantilla arrived on Friday, but we haven't gotten a picture yet. I'll work on that and get one to you ASAP

Two questions. Why do we think mantillas are conducive to modesty and averting the attention of men when:

A) lingerie is made out of the same material

B) one can entertain people for a week by posting pictures of ladies wearing them?

I like them but I'm curious... It seems a plain hankerchief like the elderly ladies around my town wear to Mass would be better suited to the purpose.

This is truly a dignified and beautiful tribute to the
feminine...

This photo is stunningly beautiful.

While I most often wear kerchifs, I have a mantilla that was my grandmother's (and therefore used in a Catholic church) that makes me happy to wear.

Yes, but I wouldn't blow my nose into a mantilla. Kinda makes you wonder about those old ladies...

I am really sad to see this week go :(

Maybe I will continue it on... and make it Mantilla Month over at my blog :) Doesn't really fit my theme... but hey... so what?

hehe
