Scott over at The Sartorialist had the genius idea of asking people to submit their vintage family photos for his blog. The results are pretty fascinating. I am in the UK at the moment and popped into see secretstylist senior senior. We were having a look at some albums and I found these pics below...terribly self-indulgent of me to post them but I do love looking back at old photos and seeing how stylish people were back then. I also found out that my Grandmother often made her own clothes for herself and for my Mother, for about 1p (GBP pence) veryresourceful.com...
My Grandmother and my Mother on the beach in Scotland
My Mother in the outfit my Grandmother made for her in 1949 out of "a long remnant which cost 3d" that's the equivalent of 1.5 pence/0.72 of an HK cent (my maths could be hideously wrong though!)
My Grandmother in her own design, made in 1934 from remnants again! It cost about 18 pence/ 2.16 HK cents
There they are again, a few years later in 1964, looking very chic!
