I Wear My Grandma's Clothes


Sunglasses: Grandmother's
Blouse: Grandmother's
Denim Skirt: Banana Republic (clearance, old)
Earrings and Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Watch: TJMaxx
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (clearance)

On Labor Day Grandpa invited the daughters and granddaughters to come up and go through Grandma's clothes.  It has been three years since her passing.  It was still hard, but we were all happy to get to take a little bit of her home.  My Grandmother is my style icon forever and always!  She did some modeling when she was young and always dressed and walked like she had just stepped off of a photo shoot.  I am picturing her right now with a golden yellow silk scarf wrapped around her dark curled hair and draping off her shoulders, it was Easter Sunday.  That is my Grandma Janell.  Her closet was always my favorite room in her house.  I would sit on the floor and look at all the designer clothes and just dream.  When I arrived on Labor Day, I hurried up to her closet to sit and dream one last time before anyone else came upstairs.

PS: If you're curious about my dazzling ring...it was my birthday present from Hubby!!!  I'm still flabbergasted!

  2. First visit to your blog and I love seeing re-purpose clothing from Family members. Your Gma was a very stylish Gal. Enjoy!

  3. You look great in your grandma's clothing! My grandmother died in the spring. She had such good taste in clothes, very put together. I inherited her shoes because we wore the same size. My sister inherited her clothing. It feels good to put on a piece of grandma's clothes of jewelry.
