Memory Lane Monday

Posted by on Monday, October 18th, 2010


I simply adore this photo of my mother, circa 1957. (I’m guessing….my parents were married in 1958 and seems like I remember her telling me this was taken while they were dating.)

I love her dress and how tiny her waist looked! She just looks so elegant – like a movie star! And look at that car in the background. Kinda cool, huh?

    Beautiful picture! Isn’t it strange to realize our mama’s were someone other than our mama?

    Lovely photo. Elegance is on its way back what with the Mad Men fashion and all. Maybe she could pass her dress down to you.
