Outfit of the Week 7: Glamour Snapshot

On a sunny and warm, late summer day, I imagine the actress, Jessica Lange, playing a character named Irene. She, and her younger sister, Dee Dee, played by Rachel McAdams are driving through a mid-western countryside in an updated, classic, late-model, 1955 sweet-pink, Ford Convertible. They have just won big at the horse races and are on their way to meet up with their boyfriends for a celebration picnic, before they head home. Dee Dee is charmingly attired in modest black dress with white pearls and black sandals. Irene is dressed in the elegant and glamorous outfit below. 

Irene shields her eyes from the sun and asks Dee Dee where she put her sunglasses.

Dee Dee replies, “Irene, you’re always losing your glasses. She leans over the back seat. “I don’t see them, but here, shield your eyes with your beautiful black hat with the grosgrain ribbon woven throughout. You always look so pretty in it like a Southern Belle, except you come from Wisconsin.”

Irene smiles.

“Irene, aren’t you a little bit hot with that scarf  around your neck?” asks Dee Dee. 
“No, it’s sheer enough to let the warm breeze keep my neck cool as we speed down this highway to meet up with the guys. Besides, this elegant scarf keeps my neck from tanning and keeps the wrinkles at bay.”

“Irene, I sure do like your drop waist, lemon-yellow dress, you’re wearing. The sprigs of leaves remind me of the tall grasses swaying back and forth on the gentle breeze back at home.”
Irene looks at Dee Dee,”Girl, I wasn’t thinking about grass when I bought this dress. Where do get these ideas from?” She wipes away a smudge of lipstick from the side of Dee Dee’s face. “I bought this dress because the softly gathered pleats at the waist show off my lovely figure. Besides, the dress is Luke’s favorite. His eyes always light up every time he sees me in it.”

Irene removes one hand from the steering wheel, “A lady down the street from me makes such wonderful jewelry. This bracelet has genuine black swarovski crystals. It is so divine. Look at the detail of the silver bead accents.”
“It’s a lovely design,” replies Dee Dee.

“The tiny metal studs on these platform, peep-toe heels match the bracelet quite well,” said Irene. “Did you know these heels have a back zipper?” She laughed, ” Makes me think of – “
“I don’t want to hear it,” interrupted Dee Dee. “You’ve got that weird twinkle in your eye, and I know what that means, besides, pull over there, the men are right under that willow tree.”
Irene follows the direction of Dee Dee’s arm and turns the ignition off. She jumps out of the car and runs over to Luke and throws her arms around him, laughing. She calls out to Dee Dee who is still in the car.

“Dee Dee, bring my tote, will ya? I packed a big lunch for all of us. Dee Dee pulled the tote from the back seat and nearly stumbled out of the car under its weight. “Goodness, she must have brought the entire contents of the fridge,” said Dee Dee, as Cal, her boyfriend, easily shouldered the heavy tote.
A bright yellow butterfly on the tote caught her eye. She admired the contrasting grey butterflies and floral print. The cheery yellow ribbon reminded her of their mother, the one Irene most favored. She grabs Cal’s hand and smiles up at him.  They walk over to Irene and Luke who were already relaxing on the blanket covered ground.
