ciht_8-27-16_097I could spend hours looking through old family photos. My grandmother and mom have quite the collection of party pics, travel shots and newspaper clippings. But my favorite era by far is the 60’s and 70’s. Between the two of them, their style is epic to say the least. I have some photos I hang on to for many reasons, one being that I quite literally want to knock off their outfit somehow, someway. A few favorites involve my mom in a feminine, high-neck blouse with some kind of lace/crocheted detailing. I’ve never been able to find anything like it, until now. When this dress arrived from Doên I could hardly contain myself. Channeling my mom circa 1971 here. Also Doên continues to steal my heart and some serious real estate in my closet. See more favorites from the line here, here and here.
