I love family heirlooms!

You might remember this dress from this past month! It was a gift from my Aunt Kate (my mother's sister!) My Great Grandmother Lucille Frisina used to own it back in the 1940's. I wish I had a picture of her in it! I went to her house the actual day these photos were taken to show her and asked her if she had a photo of herself in it, but, alas- she didn't. She had so many dresses.. I bet she didn't even remember! She will turn 99 in August! That's right- I AM GOING TO LIVE TO 106! haha, her sister, Floy did! (my great aunt!)

anyway, enough rambling about family ties! I am on a bow tie hiatus at the moment- but not to worry, I have many new ties ready to be photographed, and I met the most amazing models the other day who are super excited for a bow tie photo shoot!
love love, polly

Oh clothes that has been passed down is so great. Alot of history in it and often you actually know the histories behind it and can see it being worn on generations. Lovely dress!
