    And hankies, embroidered initialed hankies by the drawer-full.

    And shoes size 4 and 5. I marveled at their dimunity, I wear a 10. As a young woman I was a tomboy in jeans and T-shirts which horrified them. Now that I'm older I find that lady like-ness appeals to me as it seems to be dying off and everybody just wants to look like a stripper or an auto mechanic.

    I adore the queen completely.

    My granny ALWAYS wore hat and gloves when she went out, even just to post a letter or get a pint of milk. A different era.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    These days I only wear gloves in the winter. Of course I had white elbow length ones for my Senior Prom in 1968. I'm 63 if anyone is too lazy to do the math!
    The Queen looks great, I hope I look that good at 88 and live at least that long! I do agree that the peach color isn't the best for her. But, she has a really pretty complexion and can pull off a wide range of colors.
