Grandma's Got a Gold Mine in Her Basement

Thursday, March 26, 2009


I love love LOVE vintage classics. I'm always telling Blake how I was born in the wrong ERA. In college I bought a fuchsia 1920's cloche complete with purple feathers. You should have seen the looks I got strutting that baby into my Biology class. One of my very favorite phone calls are the ones I get from my grandma... They go a little some thing like this " Tigan, it's Grandma.... I found some old dresses in my basement I thought you might like.... Hello?... Tigan?" ( The phone which was left hanging by the cord swings back and forth in the absent breeze because I have already ran across the street to check out my new treasures.) 

This unworn turquoise dupioni silk beauty with it's original price tags has sat in a box for at least twenty years in my grandma's basement.  
{Hello beautiful 1950's frock welcome to the 21st century. You and me are going to be real good friends!}



The bracelet was an early birthday present who knows were it's been hiding. If you notice the bracelet actually fits my wrist. See I told you I was born in the wrong time period.
