Classy women of Searcy AR.  Historic photo

Where they were?  What they were doing?  Why they were together?

I don't know.  (But Searcy Sleuths will know.)   I do recognize lots of the ladies.  In fact, I recognize almost all of them but can't recall the names.  Definitely, they were on a nice brick porch and they were all dressed up.  I don't believe I see a single pair of pants in the picture so it dates back a good distance.  It might be fun for you to pinpoint your favorites in this picture!

Those were the days.  Women all wore dresses, and look at those crossed legs.

Myrl, dresses were worn and the crossed legs revealed nothing.  Not like the ladies on TV today who wear short skirts, no hose, and reveal a lot!!

Barbara, This is a picture of Chaper AA P.E.O. in Searcy. We were celebrating the 40th Anniversary of our chapter in 1985. We are on my back porch. That is me on the back row in white with all the dark long hair!

My mama when I was a little girl taught me how to set appropriately either with my legs crossed or with my legs stuck together at the knees if she seen me not sitting appropriately as a little girl with my legs together she would tell me I was taking someone's picture and that was her way of telling me that I was not sitting there like a young lady. I really like pictures like this cuz it shows how women sit appropriately and classy unlike the ladies in the women of today. Also back then I don't think little girls were taught to dress appropriately and nowadays they're not taught that way.

LaMonica, your mother was a "classy lady" also.  It is appalling to see the ladies on the news or ones on TV shows sit with the short skirts that show too much of their flesh.  And now ladies are free to wear pants anywhere!  So I think it would be better if they wore pants.  Thanks for your comment.

Yes ma'am my mama today she still don't wear anything that exposes much you're lucky if you see her wear capris that barely show her ankles she wears tennis shoes with socks everywhere she goes with everything she wears you never seen her in a dress anymore though she wears pants and most of the time long sleeve shirts and covers her neck as much as possible she took after my great-grandmother I guess. By the way I love watching your posts

LaMonica, thank you so much for joining the discussion about fashions.  I am wondering how old your mother is now?  Going outside in Searcy AR right now with all those clothes on would be pretty hot!
