The Gallery...Vintage

This week's The Gallery prompt is Vintage.  

For me I've chosen to post some of my favourite photos of my mum which personify vintage glamour.  Taken in the fifties, her style would be equally relevant today with the resurgence of retro styles.  

I love how glamorous she looks, like a starlet from the decade.  The off the shoulder look is really saucy and it's wonderful to see my mum as the gorgeous, young woman that she was before us kids (the pinny and the head scarf) came along.




Link up at Tara's and discover other photographic vintage offerings!

  1. No wonder dad didn't like these photos! The photographer did bring out a wanton side

  3. My immediate reaction was "Gosh, was I ever that young?" It was a bittersweet
    thought but growing older turned me into a Mum and later on a Nan, both of
    which I am honoured and proud to be. Thankyou darling for the gallery.
