I was looking through some old pics of my mom and her sisters. Let me tell you those women knew how to dress! They were the epitome of beauty, elegance and sophistication. I remember my mom going to the supermarket in pumps, her requisite A-line sleeveless dress (depending on the season) or her St. John Knits. I use to think that my mom was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen and I wanted to be just like her. That was back in the day when women wouldn’t be caught dead without their hair coiffed, their make-up applied to perfection and looking every bit like they’ve just stepped off the pages of some fashion magazine.
Unfortunately for my mom, her daughter received part of the text because I was a late in life baby, so my era was between the 80’s big hair and shoulder pads moving on to the 90’s with Doc Martins and Grunge. Though I can clean up nicely, it’s become a chore. So in honor of my mom, I wanted to share some of the photos I’ve collected and admire and these photos are simply awesome. Sometimes I do long for those days because then, it was just a normal part of a woman’s life. So I hope you enjoy stepping back in time with me.
Can’t forget Jackie Kennedy, Lena Horne or Dorothy Dandridge,
