Rememberence

Yesterday was Mothers Day and I couldn’t help but think of this skirt. Mainly because it reminds me of my late grand mother. Lately I have been missing her a lot, she died about five years ago. I know she loved a-line wrap skirts like this one. I inherited one of hers before she died but in a closet purge I ousted it from my closet(I later regretted it). Any way a few weeks ago I was thrifting and stumbled across this skirt and I thought of her. It’s a Fl brand from the 70’s, Pop-O that was based in Naples Fl. sadly I couldn’t find a thing about them on the web but when I wear it I’ll remember those fun times that I had as a little gal with my grandmother. We shopped, played dress up, went to the beach, and looked at all of her jewelz(she had a serious collection).
I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day! Enjoying the love of the ones you hold dear and remembering those who are no longer here.
Love,
   Laura
Wearing: thrifted 70’s wrap skirt; 90’s silk top; vintage necklace; yard-saled leather backpack; sunnies from my brother; and Gianni Bini shoes.
p.s. I wore this several weeks ago but due to school I didn’t post it. In retrospect I think that’s a good thing, because it fits Mothers Day perfectly.

  1. Sorry to read about your grandma , i miss mine too she passed on 2008

    she was beautiful inside / out , and she loves to dress up , and there is a crazy thing which runs in family veins , everyone loves to buy clothes like loadsa of them haha

    but my grandma she has so much clothes , As we are not very rich , she normally goes for all her clothes during bargain or mark down.Some she say she will keep for special occasions , when she died..i cried looking at her wardrobe,so many pieces she never have the chance to wear. We donated most to the salvation army.
