This is a picture of my Mum and Dad on honeymoon in Whitley Bay in 1953. Aren't they a stylish couple? Look at the lovely paisley print on Mum's dress. (Click on pics to see in more detail.)
I was doing a bit of blog hopping at the weekend and was absolutely amazed at the number of fantastic women dressing in vintage clothes. That made me go and look at some of Mum's photos. She was always so particular about how she dressed and her hair was always immaculate.
This is her probably aged about 18.
Even looked stylish in her WAAF uniform.
|Look how the buttons emphasise the nipped-in waist.|
Mum and I didn't always get on, but she was my Mum and a brilliant Gran to my sons. She would have like me to be more like her as far as dressing smartly and always looking "nice" - I was (and still am) a bit of a jeans and tee shirt girl and hate wearing makeup!
Unfortunately I didn't inherit her good looks or sense of style either!
Never mind .......... at least I can ..........type?!?!
