And the music too heehee cause I m odd that way, but I will being posting some great fashion images and pictures of real people back then so enjoy as we boogie woogie to the 1940's, I can hear the Andrew Sisters playing all ready!
Wonderful photo of my grandmother and grandfather on their wedding day in 1941 I love my grandmothers gorgeous glamorous wedding gown of slipper satin with Venetian lace veil, my grandfather is decked out with his favorite 3 cart diamond stick pin, but sadly grandfather is over shadowed by grandmother Nelly and yep I want her wedding gown! I thankfully have the veil :) so thats good at least :)

This dress reminds me of the famous Grace Kelly dress that she wore while getting the Oscar, but its not and its a bit older too, this gorgeous green silk taffeta evening gown this dress is from around 1941-45, and yes I wish it was mine but who wouldn't imagine going to a dinner party in this dress? This is defiantly a WOW dress, if you ask me.
