I’m very blessed to be able to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom and son, but I can’t help but remember my beloved grandma who I miss dearly. I’m honoring her by wearing a pair of her vintage earrings, given to me by my mom after she passed away. I knew I would be able to modernize them later. Wearing something of hers always keeps her near and dear to my heart.
My sweet grandma was so classy, stylish, and a bit of a hoarder who loved fashion. Who wouldn’t want to raid her closet? She was a petite and feisty lady who was strong-willed yet gentle in so many ways, and extremely loving towards everyone.
Every weekend while growing up, I tagged along with my mom and grandma who loved antique shops and thrifting. This was how my love for vintage first began. My grandfather chauffeured us around all the time, and I couldn’t help but wonder whether we got on his nerves. Amazingly he never seemed agitated, always smiled and rarely complained.
Some of the most prized pieces in my wardrobe, which I wear time and time again came from my grandma’s closet. Not only are they pieces I love, they have an added bonus of sentimental value that is quite frankly irreplaceable. Her pieces are typically an excellent conversation starter, which ultimately leads to being able to brag about her stellar fashion sense.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s in the world. Wishing you all the love and happiness you so richly deserve!
