Fashion Friday

Here she is, my Aunt Nelle, posing in her yard in San Francisco. This photo was probably taken in the late thirties or early forties judging from her pretty outfit. She is more mature now but still has the rather elegant air about her that comes across in almost all of her pictures. She is wearing a pretty two piece outfit with a double tie under the white collar. The ties, sleeves and jacket are all trimmed in a lace. The dress beneath the jacket has buttons about three-quarters of the way down. Her hat has a wide brim and a pretty band around the crown. White gloves and a purse complete her ensemble.

When we would pick up my grandmother to go to dinner she would always have her sweater or coat, purse gloves and hat laying on the chair by the front door. She would plan the whole outfit from head to toe. I use to just love to see what she would be wearing.
