The day I took these photos it was extremely cold and windy. My stole kept flying all over the place! I was so excited to finally wear this dress. I have had it sitting in my closet for years just trying to come up with a place to wear it to. I finally just decided to wear it for fun-who needs a special occasion? It is a gorgeous steel blue taffeta frock of my grandmother's. According to my grandparents, she wore it to a friend's wedding probably in the 1950's. How fun to think of her attending a wedding celebration in this dress with my grandfather. It's always incredibly interesting to think of your grandparents when they were your age. We tend to think of older generations of people as how they are now-for instance my grandmother loves to play solitaire games, read, and do other quiet hobbies. However, I bet when she was my age she was just as silly and fun as can be. I wish by putting on old garments you could live the lives of the previous owners, if only for a few minutes.
I also finally had the perfect dress to wear with this light blue hat from my shop. It is such a gorgeous piece I almost don't want to give it up, but then again I feel that way about pretty much every item I have, so... :) Check it out!
The little piece of luggage was a gift from my friend Kim who owns the shop RetroRemnants! I am excited to begin using it to transport my hats when I travel :) She stuffed it with a few little gifts as well such as some little bolero jackets from the 1950's. I need to get them cleaned and fixed up, but they're darling pieces.
Hope you're having a fantastic week!
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
