The Deeper Meaning Behind Wearing a Dirndl – Rare Dirndl Blog
Another diversion to the German side of my ancestral heritage! I have to confess, I like seeing a woman wearing a dirndl – if it's a real one, not (as the author puts it) a "beer wench costume [from] Amazon": always have, always will. I also very much enjoyed this blog post's discussion of the deeper implications of dirndl-wearing.
And I particularly like the young woman in the picture above, because this is a contemporary rendition of the traditional outfit, proving a) that it's not just an antiquarian affectation, and b) as I have said more than once on this blog, traditional is attractive! It is possible to be demure and alluring at the same time, and this lovely young lady is proof.
