While growing up, I regularly traveled to vintage and consignment shops with my grandmother, mother, and sisters. It didn’t take long for my sisters and I to quickly became lovers of timeless fashion. Beyond my sisters, I had never met someone who loves vintage fashion as much, or more as we do until I was introduced to my friend Mary Liles aka Memsy, last year. Once I met her, the connection was instant and it seems as if we had been knowing each other longer. Everything about Mary is absolutely amazing! Her kind heart, bad-ass style, uniqueness, being well-traveled, are just a few of the reasons why she’s freaking FABULOUS! With that said, she’s exactly the type of friend I’m blessed to have in my corner. Even her cat “Ruby” is freaking amazing!
Mary is a vintage dealer and her baby is Boot & Trunk (Follow her on Instagram). She often holds private and public trunk shows where you can find the most amazing vintage from her travels. I could go on forever about my friend, but I should probably get to the real reason for this blog post. Today is Mary’s birthday, and I’m extremely honored to share an outfit that belonged to her grandmother. How cool is that?
I sat down with Mary and she shared a little about her grandmother with me. She did not work and was from a well off family in Charlotte, NC. We had a wonderful time and it was great learning about her family tree and the history of this outfit. It was easy to gather that Mary’s grandmother loved fashion, had stellar fashion sense, and was always well put together. As they say the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
Keeping some of my grandmother’s most prized pieces was yet another thing Mary and I had in common. It is a true honor to bring back to life her grandmother’s outfit and sharing it on her special day. So today I’m wishing the happiest of birthday’s to my friend Memsy!!!! I’m SO honored to be your friend! Love you!!
