family ties

This photo was taken in December of 1988 at a Christmas party in Beverly Hills, California (where my mother used to live for four years!) My mom sent this picture to me in an email last night and it made me so happy!! I love seeing a picture of my mom actually wearing this hat. She looks so beautiful. I love her so much (I love you mom and dad! Thanks for talking me through things tonight.. you're the best.)
I also really love the fact that she is wearing pearls in that picture and I am, too! (she gave me everything I am wearing in these photos!) My mom actually JUST RECENTLY found out she was pregnant with me in this picture. <3 I was born in August of 1989.
Nathan Adhikari took these amazing photos! He is a good friend of mine!
love, polly

You look just as beautiful in the photos as your mother did then, I really love old photos! I need to scan some of my Mum when she was young too someday.
It's so cool to see how some accessories like your mum's hat/headpiece never get out of style :)

that fascinator is gorgeous and has held up so well through the years! Looks like your mom was a bit of a fashionista herself, seems like the apples doesnt fall far from the tree!
