I miss my grandmother terribly.  She was the most amazing woman I’ve ever met and I hope if she’s hanging around that she’s proud of how I am living my life, as I’ve modeled a lot of my attitudes after her’s.  One way I have been able to remember her is through fashion.  She left behind many treasures that I absolutely love and I feel fortunate to have the chance to own/wear them.  A few pieces she gave me before she passed away and they feel particularly special because they were picked specifically for me.

Pictured are a few of my favorite things in which I have inherited.  The gold necklace my grandma gave me years ago – she told me a grand story of how she acquired it while visiting Spain.  The two jackets are both vintage fur + feathers, and I am still trying to figure out what they’re made of.  They’re so silky smooth!  Vintage fur is ok, yes?  Lastly is that amazing feather brooch which I have been wearing on my hats and tops, but I need to replace the back as it often slips off.

I love vintage, but nothing beats owning a piece of your family’s history.  I’ll post more photos when I’ve collected some more gems.
