Fashionable Me

Some of Monica’s mom’s friends were planning a fashion show fundraiser. The daughters were going to be the models. Then one of the girls thought of Monica and wanted to include her. The girls had tea at Sally’s house and tried on vintage dresses. Then they all went to The Limited and tried on new clothes. The fashion show was about femininity and elegance and how they have been expressed in our clothing. Also how the clothing of other countries influenced clothes in the United States.

The girls arrived early on the day and practiced walking on the platform.


Then they all got dressed in a special room. There were lots of clothes and accessories. The girls helped each other.


The show started with some very beautiful and very old dresses.

Later there were the dresses from other countries. Monica’s first dress was a dirndl showing the influence of clothing from Austria. (Perfect for that Sound of Music fan!)

After the vintage dresses, everyone had lunch. Monica was seated with the other models, not her mom!


After lunch, the girls modeled the new clothes from the Limited.

Monica knew just how to stand to show off the dress she was wearing! It was a lot of fun!

  1. Hi, I’ve just found your blog and what a great encouragement it is for me. I was wondering if you would consider writing a blog post about leading a DS adult in the Christian faith? My sister in law is about to turn 20 years old (She’ll be a woman, in her own words), and I would love to help her engage more with God. I just know has special purposes for her life, and He has made her for His glory, but I see her struggle to grasp the concept of God, and to engage on a personal level with him. The whole family is Christian, and her parents (my parents in law), are pastors. I know no other Christian families with DS, so if you would want to do that… or to email me about it, I would be SO SO grateful. Much love from Uruguay xx
