Fashion Revival

I recently had some portraits done wearing my mother's clothes.  These were outfits that had special meaning to her and she wanted to see me in them, too.  It was fun! Of course, I'm not the same build as my mother. She was tall and slender, but amazingly enough, they fit okay on me.  My mother wore the blue velvet dress for my father because they both loved the song "Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton.  I think she wore the green dress on their honeymoon.  And the gray suit was handmade for her on their honeymoon in Hawaii.  And it's rumored that my father had a matching one; which they wore together.  So sweet.
Oh! My next post I'll show photos, (if I can find them) of them wearing these outfits.  That'll be neato, too!  I'm glad to have parents that are still in love after 41 years of marriage.

Special thanks to my friend Darla Cosby, a great photographer!  You can check out her website here:
