So my husband's amazing grandmother just moved into a nursing home. She'll be 90 in August, has lived alone for 20+ years, and has done fine until a recent fall. She's just a cool woman.
She made a point of making sure that I received a family chest that was filled with vintage clothing. I tried them on this morning. It's an incredible trove. There's a dress, I think it's from the sixties, that looks just like the Chloe babydoll lace dress, it just needs to be shortened to a mini. The chest was full of silk-lined velvet capes, hand-embroidered cap-sleeve blouses, leather gloves with pearl closures--all beautiful. Just another reminder of what a brilliant woman she is.
