i’m sure if you’ve been reading for a little while, you’ve noticed how often the subject of my mom comes up on here! there’s no way to say it without being cheesy, but she is a true inspiration to me. she’s the woman who would wake me up early on the weekends to go rummaging for treasures at estate sales, and who took me to the thrift store at least 2 times a week after school, and who would drive us out to hell and back searching all over southern california for cool vintage boutiques and antique shops for whatever interesting things we could find. and to this day, even though she lives all the way out in arizona, when i get to see her a couple of times a year, she brings boxes and bags of vintage finds to share with me. it would be an understatement to say that she’s the reason i am so in love with vintage and with getting dressed up in general!
a while back and i asker her if she could dig up some old photos of herself, and one day she sat at the scanner for hours and sent me tons of photos of herself and of my family when we were kids! i have way too many to share for one post, but i thought it would be nice to share a few photos of her when she was young. i wasn’t born yet, so many of these are from her teenage years and early twenties. can you see the resemblance at all?
