Thankyou ! The Transformation ...



Thankyou for the advice ...  you're right , of course .

This season's wardobe must have a touch of pink ; and deep olive green does go so well with certain shades of  pink  .  Definitely a paisley shawl and a somewhat  larger bonnet with slightly larger  ribbons for high days and holidays  . And , given the chilly wind , the football socks sound cosy .
Just not the gardening clogs or Twinkletoe's gold trainers  ... I'm not convinced they're me , somehow .

J.A. Kruseman's anonymous lady* , painted in 1829 , looks so delighted with her outfit and I'm sure I will be , too .
* Doesn't she look like Mrs. Bumble !

She does look pleased with herself though, togged out thusly, if she lived in Florida, she might ditch the elegance for a short haircut, no hat and a bikini......

Hmmm. I think maybe the butterfly on her forehead is a tad de trop.

She does indeed look pleased with herself, but not comfortable. That dress looks tight. Or is that my comfort loving self talking...

One has to hope that the very silly head gear was worn only for sitting for a portrait - imagine managing it in variable weather!
