anyone who knows me, knows that i LOVE sentimental things. when my grandparents passed away (four months apart), i got to keep a ceder chest that my grandfather hand made as well as this dress. my grandma wore it for their 25th wedding anniversary/vow renewal party. they were married for just over 61 years. so before i tuck it away in my cedar chest, i thought i would play dress up and take a few pics in it.

    I cannot believe what a perfect fit that is on you! My grandma was under 5ft, so none of her clothes would have worked for me. This is just beautiful & I’m sure she is happy to see you wearing it! 🙂

    This dress is beautiful, it has a boho vibe to it, and I am glad you were able to inherit it along with the cedar chest. Enjoy it for years to come along with the memories of your grandmother.
