I love her jacket, flared jeans and the dash of color her scarf imparts to the outfit!
Whenever I visit my hometown in California, I always pore over my family's photo albums. My parents were stylin' in the late 1970s and early 1980s! (They're still stylin' now). When I first got into vintage clothing, I asked my Mom why she hadn't saved any of her clothes and she said "how was I supposed to know you'd like old things?" Boohoo.
My Mom's earrings were made of tiny pale blue silk flowers. I used to wear them. I think I may have destroyed them, actually. Oops! Check out my Dad's gray slacks and plaid shirt.
My parents' first apartment. See how awesome it is? Look at those funky floor cushions! The modernist coffee table! The rug! This is late seventies decorating at its best.
My parents feed a squirrel at Grand Canyon. Check out my Mom's Lopi-style knitted jacket!
In Taipei. My knitted cardigan had orca whales on it and was made by my grandma (my brother had a matching one in pale blue).
Ooh, we look so 1981 here! I love my green crochet poncho with the fringe and my Mom's puffy vest and plaid shirt.
These are just a few of the photos we have of my Mom in her awesome outfits. I'm looking forward to scanning in more pics next time I go home. Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
