Look at how beautiful and stylish my Grandmother Josefina is. Even when sitting on the front steps, she has her hair up and lipstick on. Beautiful!
I love looking thru old family photos. And these photos are so beautiful. A day in a park in Sausalito. That’s my grandmother, Josefina, in the middle, standing up. I love her hair style, her look, well . . . everything!
And look at those shoulder pads my Aunt Josie's coat has! It's the 80's but back in the 40's! I love the fur lining of my Aunt Maggie's coat. But most of all, I love their shoes! Beautiful open toed platform shoes. Oh how I wish my feet were a smaller size so I can fit into those shoes!
I had a conversation the other day, with a fellow knitter. We were talking about clothing styles, and how yoga pants look seems to be the norm. “People don’t get dressed up any more,” she said. Ok, I’m going to make a promises to myself: never wear yoga pants outside, expect during a yoga class! Really!
But back in the 40’s women really dressed! Beautiful dresses, stockings, shoes, and handbags to match. And I'm so proud that this photo, of beautiful styled men, women and children, are my family!
