Mother of the bride

 Hot pink mother of the Bride gown

Hot pink mother of the Bride gown

Oh how I love this dress.  This is a stunning hot pink, silk satin and brocade gown. Until a few days ago, I knew nothing about its history.  As I have said, I did not inherit just my mothers clothes, but also her mothers clothes, (and her mothers clothes, and so on and so on).  So this weekend, when I was sifting through old family photos with my second grade daughter for her family tree project, I came across a stack of photos from my mother's first wedding.  I recognized the dress my grandmother was wearing almost immediately .  I was so happy to know that this was the dress I came across this summer, and loved, and the fact that now I know that it was hot pink, makes me look at those old black and white photos in such a different way.   Way to go Gram, I love your style...Oh and while I was typing this, my nine year old asked if I  would save this dress for her, yes my love, of course I will.
