Letter from the Editor: In Vogue

As a child, I was not at all into fashion. Unlike most little girls my age, I never wanted to bother with dresses and hair styles. Unfortunately, my mother did not agree, and I sat through endless hours of having my hair brushed and pin curled. But, one exception was the annual Easter dress. Every year, I would gladly put on my beautiful new dress and shoes, pack a stick of gum and a quarter for the offering plate in my new handbag and go with my parents to Easter services at our church. My father would tell my mother and me how beautiful we looked in our new spring finery, and I always felt he was telling me the absolute truth. It was the one day of the year that I felt like a princess. After church, the dress would come off, and even though I would wear it many more times, it never had the same effect. Of course, as I grew up, I did learn to love clothes and dressing up, but I’ve never had clothes that were as magical as my childhood Easter dresses.

You’ll find lots of fun reading in this month’s Sasee. Be sure to read about Page and Skeeter Nash’s gorgeous garden rooms in “Garden Digs,” and then you’ll want to begin planning your own outdoor living space. New author, Robin Allen, tells us about her decision to stop wearing jeans in, “Two Score and Seven Jeans Ago,” and Dee Orr remembers her favorite pair of shoes in, “Two New Pennies.”

All of this and much more is waiting in this issue. As always, I love hearing from you. Please write me at editor@sasee.com, or 1357 21st Ave. N., Suite 102, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.

All the best,
Leslie
