Here is the latest submission in our Mother of Style feature. Donne Davis, creator of The GaGa Sisterhood®, a site “where Grandmas Bond, Brag, and Benefit”.
Donne sent in a photo of her mother, Julie, which was taken in Mexico while on vacation in 1960. My favorite thing about this photo is Julie’s beautiful expression. A lovely woman with a clear sense of style, dressed perhaps for dinner out?
This look inspired a more formal outfit, consisting of a portrait collar dress, vintage jewel earrings, dark polish and a bow-detailed bag.
