Dresses and Barbed Wire Fences

A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.

Sophia Loren

Classic.  Beauty.  Click that link and see for yourself.

  1. Jeez Venlet. You could have at least found a decent picture.

  2. Hey, Erin.

    No doubt the photo you have posted of Sophia does have a sultry edge that catches the eye, but I actually prefer the one I linked to.  The summer dress Sophia is wearing in that photo is serving its purpose, well, without obstructing the view.  The picture of femininity.

    I will say, though, that I’ve never really seen a bad picture of Sophia.

  3. This is my favorite pic of Loren, mainly because she is not posing and the way she’s looking at Mansfield speaks volumes.

  4. That is a good one, Erin.  Mansfield’s dress is just barely serving it’s purpose, hey?

  5. I cannot tell if Loren is envious or disapproving or both in that pic. Probably both.

    Now I don’t know if you’ve been to my homepage today, Mr. Venlet (is that pronounced ven-let with hard T or ven-lay?), but hopefully my holiday image will convince you that even though I’m a liberal I do not “hate America” as your friend Mr. Sayet professes.

    Have a good fourth.

  6. Awesome quote, and I laughed.

    BUT

    ...I prefer books over movies, because I like using my imagination.

    ...and, similarly, I like a woman to be tastefully and well dressed.  I don’t need to see every square inch in order to know it’s there.

    YMMV, of course.

  7. Mr. Venlet (is that pronounced ven-let with hard T or ven-lay?),...

    Hard T, Erin.

    ...hopefully my holiday image will convince you that even though I’m a liberal I do not “hate America”...

    I don’t think you “hate America,” Erin, it’s just that your ideas regarding America at times seem to indicate a preference for America to be spelled with a “k.”

  8. ...I prefer books over movies, because I like using my imagination.

    As do I, TJIC.

    ...I like a woman to be tastefully and well dressed.  I don’t need to see every square inch in order to know it’s there.

    Amen.  And I get pretty good mileage, too.

  9. Which ideas? Ones I’ve actually espoused or one’s you simply imagine I have?

    You will note I have used italics so you can better understand me.

  10. Which ideas? Ones I’ve actually espoused…

    There is a vast difference between a felt sense of obligation to assist someone, Erin, and being forced to help someone via taxation.  A subject you recently touched on here.

  11. Very nice, Mr. VenleT.
