this post was meant to go up earlier, but i suffered a nasty fall this weekend. i was walking to a show and slipped on the wet street, and fell on both knees, rolled my ankle and scraped myself up pretty badly. ouch! for the record, i was wearing flats (!!) and am firmly convinced that i would not have fallen if i'd been wearing my highest heels.
anyhoo... my Grammie's hats!
i went to see my grandmother and she gave me these lovely hats and scarves! they all belonged to my great-grandmother (Grammie) and i love them!
here's a picture of her, her name was Elizabeth Parrish, she is second from the left, standing next to her father, my great-great-grandfather, and her brothers and sisters.
she was born in 1901 and died in 1994. judging by the outfits and the relative ages, i think this picture was taken around 1945- the men's trousers and ties are on the wider side, ties and pant legs got thinner after WWII ended. so Grammie is around 44 here- and she loved hats! i can't wait to figure out what to wear with them... especially the white pill box one. it looks like a Jackie O cake!
these are real deal vintage, and are staying in the family, which makes me happy. yay!
and back to the closet challenge..
black and white stripedy Tim Burton wedges (love love love these), black slacks and tee, silver earrings, and this beloved white jacket with a poem on it.
it's a Mizrahi jacket and my friend Jessie added the writing. i got it from her at a yard sale she and her husband had (i can't Believe she parted with it!) i've never actually read the whole thing, i'm embarrassed to admit, but it's true! i get a lot of questions about this whenever i wear it, it's just such a great unique piece.
night out with friends! i wore these black slacks and this black camisole with a grey rhinestone studded Calvin Klein sweater and black boots for a drink with friends at a local jazz club. i love the shape of this sweater and the 3/4 sleeves.
happy monday everyone!
