Style. Substance. Faith.
If these three words speak on some level to you, I’m so glad to know you and I invite you to stick around!
Welcome to (Best) Bib and Tucker Blog.
What is a Bib and Tucker?
This term originated not in any figurative sense but literally – both bibs and tuckers were items of women’s clothing from the 17th to late 19th centuries.
“A Pinner or Tucker, is a narrow piece of Cloth – which compasseth the top of a Womans Gown about the Neck part.”
‘Best bib and tucker’ is an 18th century term, the first known citation of which is from a translation of the Marquis d’Argens’ ambitiously titled work New Memoirs establishing a True Knowledge of Mankind, 1747:
“The Country-woman minds nothing on Sundays so much as her best Bib and Tucker.”
I’m putting forth my best everyday and I hope to inspire others to do the same!
Why (Best) Bib and Tucker?
My goal is to put forth my best self everyday and inspire others to do the same. There will be days when I want to do nothing more than to lounge around in my sweats and eat chocolate… but that’s not going to happen, so I might as well look nice while going through what I’m going through. I am a social person and I would love to hear from you whether it’s here in the com box or on Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter. I used to blog under the name Caffeinated Catholic Mama… and those descriptors still apply, more so than ever!
