An heirloom

dress: Caron
sunglasses Ray-Ban
shoes: Asos similar

I really lucked out in the grandma department. I have two sweet ladies who spoil me and I even had the chance to get to know two of my great grandmas. Today I was excited to wear a dress that my paternal grandma ( we call her Nonni) gave me. She was so excited and surprised that I was interested in something she used to wear in the 60's. Nonni told me the dress was from a fashion line started by Leslie Caron, a French ballerina-actress. In a nod to Caron I wore the dress with a ballerina bun and slipper-like shoes. If only random pirouetting was acceptable in public.
