+ my mother’s dress

I wanted to get this done for Mother’s Day,  but I got it done today instead…woooops.  Anyway, my mom wore this way back in the day (sorry mom, I guess not way back in the day) I decided to refashion it by taking out 5 inches from the bottom, the awesome shoulder pads, and cinching up the sleeves just a little….LOVE it.
Sorry for the nasty pictures…I took them when it was really dark outside…oh and sorry for the reflective white legs.


  1. Today is mother’s day in Mexico… so you did get it up in the holiday!

  2. Hey, Beautiful Daughter! It is me that is so blessed to have such a lovely creature and a well-spring of constant joy and happiness. You look WAY more lovely that ever could have ever did in that “vintage 1970’s dress. I love that my children have grown so be so wonderfully talented and brilliant. Well, Lovely One, your Mummsie’s old a eyes are slipping shut…so I will talk to you on the morrow! Oh, I miss you so, but am so very pleased with the talented and gorgeous young woman my Lizzie has because. Lover you lots and lots! My precious one! xoxoxo

  3. OK. I re-read my post from late last night and realized this one truth. If you are very, very, very sleeply do not (NOT EVER) try to write something that others much younger and smarter than you will read! All that I have proven is that there is something loose and wobbly in my brain. Oh, yeah. So be my proof-reader and be kind to those over 50+! Love you lots, Mummsie xo

  6. Such great ideas Liz…you’re really good at making things the most flattering for you. You are smart at that! You should do a blog on flattering styles for each body type (like…here are ways to fix your close to look better on you if you are pear shaped…like that you know?).

  7. and by “close” I mean “clothes”

  8. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you need to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t speak about these topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
