Why’d They Wear That? Fashion as the Mirror of History

Why'd They Wear That

I’m often amazed with the outfits ML creates from her wardrobe.  Usually, I refrain from asking her to change clothes.  Unless, it’s 30 degrees and she’s wearing a tank top and shorts.  I’ll save the clothing arguments for later years.  Her combinations mimic her personality.  Athletic, original and full of zest.

I knew when Why’d They Wear That? Fashion as the Mirror of History by Sarah Albee arrived, ML would love it.  The text is difficult to read for a 2nd grader; but I knew she would poor over the pictures.  She did.  For the first time in a long time, she did not resist a book recommendation from me.

Today, when I dropped ML off at carpool, we were greeted by a drummer boy and a man playing a fife.  Any guesses on “Why’d they wear that?”
