Yesterday at 2:30 PM, my Great Grandmother Lucille Frisina passed away at 99 years young. I've shared numerous stories about her and how her spirit has lived on though passing her clothing throughout my family. I am fortunate enough to now own three nightgowns, two amazing lace slips, and two elegant black dresses from her. She was one of the most generous people I've ever known with such a strong spirit. I'll never forget her laugh. The last time I saw her was this past summer. I wore one of her black dresses which my Aunt Kate gifted to me after she had owned it for a number of years. I feel so fortunate to have had someone so classy and generous in my family... I will always remember you, Grandma Nini.
If you'd like to see the dresses she passed on to my mother and my Aunt Kate and then to me, here's the first post, and the second.
Here I am wearing my Great Grandmother Frisina's black velvet dress from the 1930's/1940's..
And here is a photo taken by Nathan Adhikari of me in my Great Grandmother's dress from the 1950's.
Here's a photo where we look especially alike :)
