bridal shower

This past Sunday afternoon I joined a lovely group of ladies to shower beautiful Jordan with love and wedding gifts. The fabulous party was thrown by Jordan's sister, Katie, and bff, Holly. We all dressed in our 50's housewife attire, sipped on Coca-Cola, dined on sweets and ooh'd and aah'd at all of the wonderful gifts that Jordan received. 

 This is the dress that I got at Dolly's. I did some research on the tag that was sewn into the seam. It was made by the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union somewhere between 1955 and 1963! Jordan's Grandmother told me that the fabric was referred to as whipped cream and she had owned several dresses like it. The necklace, gloves, purse and earrings all belonged to my Grandma Niecie. 

Jordan's amazing vintage green dress was given to her by her Grandmother. I love the detailing on the bodice and the back. It feels so special to be decked out in clothes and accessories that once made other women feel beautiful. Some things never grow old.

We had so much fun playing dress up and seeing Jordan smile! I love my fellow bridesmaids and I can't wait to see you all soon for the BIG day!!!

Wing tips and Pixy Stix!
