When Christian asked where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner, I said I wanted to go somewhere where I could wear this vintage dress of my Aunt’s and have a view of the water.  My plans revolve around what I want to wear…it’s the sad truth!

According to my mom and her friends, Malia dresses were the dresses to have in the 60’s and 70’s.  My mom had several…and tragically got rid of them years ago.  Luckily my Aunt Ree came to the rescue and gave me two of her adorable vintage Malia sundresses, and I have loved them for years.  I wore them in the Grove at Ole Miss on game days, to the square for nights on the town, and I brought them all the way to California and had to wear one on my birthday (don’t miss out on the weekend’s photo diary – double post today)!

Do y’all have favorite vintage items of your mom’s or aunts?  I would love to hear what you’ve snagged from mom’s closet.  My grandmother’s mink stole from the ladies boutique she owned with my grandfather has her name monogrammed on the inside is the most special piece in my closet!

  4. I love that dress. It is so classic on you! I don’t have anything of my mom’s, but she did save her wedding shoes and they are seriously AMAZING. I wish I wore a 6 so I could have worn them on my wedding day. I remember growing up thinking they were the ugliest things in the world. Funny how times change! 🙂
