the squaw dress – and ballerina shoes
During my teen years, I must have had a dozen different squaw dresses. My mother was a marvelous seamstress and made all of my clothes. We would wear squaw dresses with concho belts, turquoise and silver jewelry and I generally wore beaded moccasins.
My! The fifties!!
