Hot pink shantung sheath. Rhinestone details. Diamond engagement ring. Gold mesh watch. Perfectly coiffed hair. A tiny glimpse of old-school Spanx. (Quelle horreur!) And a cocktail glass in need of refreshing. This, my dears, is my grandma Mary, circa 1969. She will always be one of the most beautiful, poised and elegant women in the world to me.
Recreate this look with a bubblegum pink silk cocktail dress with diamante details, a gold bracelet watch, hot rollers and hairspray, thigh-slimming shape wear and a ’60s-era structured vintage floral sofa. Then have a devoted lover buy you this, and you’ll be sitting pretty.
P.S. I posted a photo from my grandparent’s wedding last Memorial Day. Check it out here, if you wanna.
