The blue 60’s dress

365 Outfit Challenge

I found this cool blue vintage dress in a vintage shop a while ago so I taught I should share it with you guys!

So, as I usually do, I imagined a story that came with the dress, a story about a housewife that used to wear it and that would be a superwomen, the perfect women, the perfect mum, that never ever fails (I think there was also a movie a whole while ago: The Stepford Wives.)

But we know that this is all a lie, there wasn’t a perfect wife, there is no one without flaws! But what’s most striking is that the image of the perfect wife still lives today in some people mind. And beside this “wife” is considered doing the “low” work evaluated under his husband’s work that’s more important because after all he brings the cash home.

I am not a wife, nor a mother, but I know that staying at home is not easy and it involves a lot of physical work but also psychic work.

So I did a bit of searching online and I found a list of rules that the perfect housewife should have done in order to refine her perfection. I’ll list here just a few, the complete list is here.

  • be happy to see him (OK, this starts promising)
  • make the evening his. Never complain.
  • arrange his pillows and offer to take off his shoes
  • over the cooler months prepare and light a fire for him
  • you have no right o question him
  • a  good wife always know her place (and ends abruptly!!!!!!!!)

The complete list is here!

I still hope you like my pic 😛
