Ladylike Sunday






This is a special edition of Ladylike Sunday for me... it's all about this fantastic dress.  It was last worn by my grandmother on March 21st 1953... her wedding day. 
Isn't is breathtaking?  I love how timeless it is. Just wearing this I felt so special.  Does anyone else have any gorgeous family vintage like this? It feels even more special when you know the history behind it.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

...I found a picture of my grandma wearing the dress... I apologize for the poor quality and formatting... I worked on this for a while and this was the best I could do even with help from a friend! (Thanks Lindsay)... but I think you still get the idea :)

  4. oh, jenny, this dress is amazingly beautiful. it would be stunning even if it didn't have such a wonderful history, but that makes it even more special. thank you for posting a photo of your grandma wearing it; it was very cool to see.

  13. you are so lucky that you still have this and that it fits you and that you look so gorgeous in it! how amazing! my mom saved her dress for all of her daughters, but she was a size 0 when she got married, so it doesn't fit any of us. we still like to put it on (without zipping it) for fun though!
