Interesting.
The mantillas seem to have more material to them than their dresses.

It reminds me of formal mourning dress, from a more civilized era.

They are waiting to see Señorita Mantilla Amontillado and her friend and client Padre Dwight de Longenecker from Estados Unidos for merienda and advice. BTW Señor Augusto (engaged to Mantilla)the Matador is also bringing his torero amigos. Watch out Señoritas for the Hombres!

Julie, I think they are dressed pretty modestly... sleeves, hemlines at the knee or just skimming it, and only one is showing a little chest yet still no cleavage.

Distinguished and elegant. Thanks, Kat!

Julie said...

Didn't mean to give the impression that I thought they were immodest, Kat. It's just that those things look awfully heavy to be anchored to the top of your head like that.
(I have a marked tendency to place comfort over fashion.)

Do they hit their heads on the roofliners of their cars when they get in? No, I'm serious - these are modern women who I presume were driven or drove themselves to wherever they are in the picture.

Do they continually take that comb off and put it back on and redrape everything after every low bridge?

Very hot damsels!
They do give me some impure ideas.

Exposed upper chest and lower leg flesh does it for a lot of men.
