    white is full of color as black is the absence of color. nice arrangement bravo, there is winter white after labor day.

    m.e. – I, too, remember that absolute dress code which also included no white purses, Bermuda shorts and trousers; I must confess, I still follow it.

    A few years back I worked in an office where the office manager was a total fashionista. She would send out memos just before labor day reminding us not to anything wear white (other than a blouse) until after Memorial Day.

    I’ve never understood why or how this rule came about … it’s just so silly … and yes I do remember it. At Easter every year when I was little we girls would get new white patent leather shoes and tiny little woven white purses with plastic flowers on top from my grandmothers. We’d wear them to church until Labor day and then away they’d go.

    Such memories! The white hat, purse, shoes and lace gloves for Easter, but never before Easter. And never after Labor Day. I remember having a “fur” muff (remember those?) that was OK to use for church in the winter because it was “winter white”. A whole different world…

    CAS says:

    Oh yes! With the red, deep blue, or deep green wool coat with the black velveteen collar and covered buttons … and the “winter white” knit hood with the “fur” trim … to match the muff of course …

    I completely forgot about the matching head-covering! Mine tied under the chin with pom pom’s on the ties.
