Vintage Maman

It’s Mother’s Day and what better to do than flip through photo albums and reminisce about the old days, while my maman recounts the events in the photographs. 

Here she is next to her family car, a 1960s Mercury Comet. Notice the 70s mini dress. 

Posing in a leather coat in the Telegraph Hill Tower in San Francisco on her honeymoon. What’s not to love about tinted oversized glasses!

In a beautiful flower print sundress that she sewed herself, she contemplates a cup with my oldest brother Justin at the Edmonton Zoo in ‘81. I am extremely envious of her natural curls! 

It was so interesting to see the number of elements of style that are now being reintroduced into fashion while flipping through the numerous albums.
