A Weekend In Feminine Dress

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress on The Catholic Lady Blog.  This is when I post pictures of myself or a volunteer wearing a modest, feminine outfit including where it was purchased in order to encourage the apostolate of feminine dress.  If you would like to submit your photos, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  Thank you!


This weekend was relaxing and we finished a few projects around the house on Saturday.  There is still so much to do, but I'm trying to focus on the positive.  I even finished painting a small table red which I've been meaning to do for awhile!  That was lots of fun.

Here is one of my favorite outfits.  My sister used to wear this dress to our German club events and then she gave it to me!  I just love these dresses, I would wear them every day if I could!

Today I am posting this picture of the girls wearing these adorable dresses from Gymboree!  I got these on clearance last year and was surprised they still fit the girls this Summer.  And we included a cute cowboy on the side too.

A Weekend In Feminine Dress: Rehearsal Dinner

We are still enjoying a busy, wonderful Summer!  My husband's brother got married on Saturday so we travelled down to West Virginia for the weekend.  It was such a nice time!  However, if I'm being honest, it's even better to be back home again, catch up on laundry and give the kids some proper sleep.

Here is what I wore to the rehearsal dinner.  I found this dress second hand and added the blue material around the hem to make it a little bit longer.  It is originally from Chadwick's of Boston (a favorite brand).  The shoes I was excited to find on clearance at DSW the very first time I walked into their store!







I'M WEARING:


Dress- Chadwick's of Boston
Cardigan- Gabe's
Shoes- DSW (Kellie & Katie brand)

This weekend flew by because we were so busy!  Saturday was a birthday party for my niece and nephew.  We went there to drop off the three older kids who stayed overnight with my Mom and then my husband and I left for Cleaveland, OH.  I wish I could say it was for a vacation, but actually we were joining a group called America Needs Fatima to protest a blasphemous play being performed there called the Testament of Mary.  Pray in reparation for this event because it is truly outrageous.  It is intolerable that such a horrible public attack on Catholics is allowed in the name of "free speech"!  Thankfully, there were about 150 attending the protest who stayed for about 2 hours to pray and we saw few if anyone enter the theater.

We didn't get back home until around 1AM Sunday morning so I was a little tired and choose something simple to wear to Mass where we met Thomas, Beatrice and Becky with my Mom.  I really love this dress Beatrice wore too.

We are finally settling into our new house and I am so thankful for a (little bit) calmer life.  This summer is just flying by.  I need to remind myself to breathe and enjoy it amidst the busy times.  Father's Day we spent at my sister's new house with family.  That was really fun for the kids since she has a nice porch with lots of outside toys, like a water table!  They loved it.

Last Sunday we attended the First Mass of a good friend who is a new priest for our diocese.  It was a very special occasion and this picture is of what we wore.

We tried to get outfit pictures yesterday too since I really liked the dresses the girls were wearing...but they didn't turn out.  So I am planning to get them to wear the same dresses next week and post.  As much as I am enjoying dressing the girls, I am at the point where I am returning to my regular size but don't have many nice clothes that I can find from last Summer.  So I need to do some shopping but don't have any time at all to actually go to the store.  So maybe online shopping is my answer?  I really don't like buying clothes without being able to see them first.  Any ideas?

What are you going to wear for the 4th of July?  I  usually try to dress the kids in red, white and blue!  We are hosting a big party and everyone around here is getting pretty excited about the water balloons, BBQ and fireworks plans!!






I'M WEARING:


Jacket- Banana Republic (old)
Skirt- LuLaRoe maxi (Gift from my sister)
Top- Kmart (I think? old)
Shoes- Consignment

Grey Sweater- Baby Gap
Purple Flower Dress- Bonnie Jean

Dear Readers, I'm Back!

How is everyone doing?  Thanks so much for the kind comments & well wishes I've received during the past few months.

So much has happened and it's made me sad to be unable to share it with you.  We have not had internet during our move.  But at least now you get the big update all at once (don't lie, we all know the only reason to read blogs anyway is to see baby pictures!!):




Henry Robert was born April 8.  He is named for St. Henry Walpole who was an English Jesuit martyr.  I don't usually remember a lot of details from my labors, but this time was more dramatic!  His heart rate kept dropping and when he was finally born we found the cord wrapped around his neck twice!  So during every contraction he was being squeezed along with his oxygen supply.  I had to be given pitocin to speed things up and because of that felt a little beat up.  I do clearly remember praying memorares and thanking God.




But he was born strong and healthy and is already getting big!




Henry's Baptism




People are saying he looks like me...can you see it?




We had our Rosary Rally for the 100 year anniversary of Fatima May 13, 2017!  It was a good turnout and some positive response.  Prayers and reparation are sorely needed for the world right now.




This man (Oliver) became a big brother and is doing really well, probably because he's a Daddy's boy anyway.  We discovered that he enjoys baseball when we went to a game recently.  He sat and watched the ball and clapped pretty much the whole time.  I've always loved baseball (which I get from my Dad) so that made me smile!








 And last but not least, we finally moved!  Our new house is beautiful.  My husband grew up in this house actually.  It is about two minutes from where he works so that's also pretty convenient.  For about the first week it was quite stressful not to know where anything was, but now I am beginning to relax and really enjoy the space and big yard.  We are in the country...but not too far from town.  And we actually have bedrooms for the kids and room to move around.  It's wonderful.  And I already made my husband replace the toilet and bathroom floor...after I moaned over it for a few days he called and said he bought a toilet.  I'm more than a little spoiled having a fix everything husband.  But now I'm perfectly happy...with just a few more projects in the works.




Maybe I will write a post on the new house soon!  If anyone wants to see pictures?  I know I always like to see people's houses.  And it is a subject quite appropriate for the Catholic Lady.  I will be back weekly too with Weekends In Feminine Dress, as soon as I find time to get some pictures.



That's all for now!

I am going to try hard to get some better pictures this week to share on the blog.  I am wearing the same things over and over at this point but I can still try!  The girls have been enjoying their Spring clothes and I would love to post about the things we've found to be helpful to dress girls beautifully (mostly layering).

Lady Day Pictures!

If you attended a special outing today March 8, 2017 to celebrate Lady Day, please share pictures of the event to Return to Order's facebook page!


Since most of the ladies who came to my Lady Day tea live far away from me, we met at a cafĂ© in a central location.  With all the children and great conversation it was difficult to find time for pictures, but here are the few I (and my little sister) managed to snap between sips of tea and wiping off little faces!

A Weekend In Feminine Dress: Special Guest, Beatrice!

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress on The Catholic Lady Blog.  This is when I post pictures of myself or a volunteer wearing a modest, feminine outfit including where it was purchased in order to encourage the apostolate of feminine dress.  If you would like to submit your photos, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.  Thank you!


I'm back finally with some pictures for A Weekend In Feminine Dress!  Beatrice wore this cheerful dress to Mass yesterday after I broke out a few of their Spring clothes last week.  We've had some days where the weather is in the 60's and then it will drop back down for a few days, only to get warmer again!

My husband was working all weekend so our son Thomas who is five took the photo of my outfit.  I think he did a pretty good job!  I have about 4 weeks left to go before the baby...I have little hope that he will come early since all my others were full term, but I'm ready whenever he is!

I am excited to visit with a few friends this Wednesday at our Lady Day outing!  If you haven't heard, it's a great opportunity to support the apostolate of Christian womanhood and counter the radical feminist Women's March movement







She removed a few layers when it got warmer, this is my typical way to keep the girls comfortable in quickly changing weather.

Lady Day Press Release!

* Below is some more information about Lady Day for those interested.  Please post and share!*


Pro-Life Ladies Oppose Feminist 'Day Without Women'
  
Contact: Maria Ritchie, 717-309-1990

SPRING GROVE, Penn., March 2, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- "The level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood" - Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

Lady Day started as an idea posted on the Catholic Lady Blog by Colette Zimmerman.

She wanted to offer pro-life women an alternative to the March 8th general strike called "A Day Without Women," which urges women to stay home from work in support for radical causes like Planned Parenthood, abortion, and same-sex "marriage."

These are the same pro-abortion feminists who marched on Washington, DC in the shockingly vulgar March for Women.

Colette Zimmerman's post went viral, and a national event was born. It's called Lady Day.

Hundreds of small groups of pro-life ladies are gearing up to celebrate the purity and goodness of true womanhood on Wednesday on March 8th.

They plan to go to work in an especially ladylike manner, in elegant and modest dresses, to go out to tea with friends, and to do works of charity.

These inspirited ladies are rallying around the slogan: "Pure Goodness at Work."

Moriah Webinger from Chardon, OH comments: "What a wonderful idea! I have 15 women already signed up for tea - it is a treat really! We are also informing the local paper too."

"I want my daughters to be truly feminine; pure and good," said Brenda Asso a mother of nine from Lancaster, PA. "Abortion! Never! Don't even think about it. It's contrary to our maternal instinct," she said.

Marie Sallinger from Lafayette, LA says the idea of celebrating true womanhood is "inspired." She adds: "I understand the evils of feminism and want to do something about it. I have many good Christian lady friends. And I'm so happy to celebrate this day as a lady."

The prayers and the participation of hundreds of women in Lady Day aim to celebrate true womanhood, which in turn, fosters higher moral standards in society and among children.
