Yes, that says what you think it says. I find great stuff in my grandmother's closet. I clothed myself for an entire summer that way. I guess I'm lucky that I have a stylish grandmother who is also my exact size, otherwise I would probably have half the clothes I do. It's what got me started on vintage (which I am now obsessed with. Case in point: Rag-O-Rama in Atlanta, GA. AWESOME STORE). Mimi (as my brother nicknamed my grandmother when he was learning how to speak) is taking me to N.Y.C. soon (11 days!!!!) and when I'm in New York, I drink the fashion world like water. Last time, I got this really comfortable, very New York-y looking brown dress at American Apparel. It's the one place that all my crazy looks are at home. I'm also going to see Wicked there, and you know those costumes got a Tony Award!!! I suppose a certain style skips a generation, because my own mother says that HER crazy great-aunts were her biggest fashion influences. Stuff works in crazy ways.
Here are some great pieces that Mimi has given me over the years.
Anyway, au revoir for now.... and remember: if your grandmother has boxes in her attic or basement, it might mean that she has super amazing old vintage clothes in them. LOOK. You will find good stuff. Happy hunting!
