I really love wearing clothing that has some kind of story or history attached to it. I’m lucky enough to have a grandma with excellent taste, so I’ve inherited some beautiful and special pieces from her wardrobe. I think it’s pretty cool to carry a piece of her with me when I wear her clothes.
This silk and angora dress was handed down to me when I was 16 years old. I originally thought this was much older, but it’s actually from the 1970s. It’s one of those dresses you can just throw on, and it wears well for most occasions. I love to wear it on cool days with black leggings and my black suede wedge boots. And let me just add that these boots are the best wardrobe staple ever. I throw them on with dresses, skirts, leggings—they go with everything, and I’m pretty sure I’m wearing them out faster than I should.
