Look what my mum found!!!

Remember when Cakes and I went to the CAF Awards and met Mikel Obi? Remember the vintage dress I was wearing, and how I'd gotten it from when I raided my grandma's trunk boxes?

Well, yesterday my mum went visiting my grandparents and took bunches of pictures of old albums. She posted them on her Facebook page and I had a thrill seeing my mum as a baby, and my uncles and aunts and grandparents from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. While going through the pictures, I happened upon this picture...

My first thought was "Awwww, my grandparents!!!" And then, I took a closer look and thought that the dress looked familiar, just that it was in black and white. So I hurriedly went back to my post and confirmed it! That's one of the vintage dresses I took from her, and I have a snapshot of her wearing it!

My grandma had sooooooooo much style, right?!?!?

Just thought to share. I was too excited and I've been smiling like a cheshire cat.

    1. That was the first thing I noticed as well! Wouldn't call it daring though- I think that was how the dress was meant to be worn.

    3. Lol, that's how the dress is supposed to be worn, but alas... all boobage is not created equal. There's no way I'd unleash the girls for all the world to see like that.
