So we are in LA right now! It is great to have some time in the old stomping ground before we head off to Singapore. While we are hitting the streets of WeHo, I had to share a little fashion with you. And while I am not one to write much about baby’s fashion, I have to make an exception.
Vintage Baby Dior? Don’t mind if I do! Okay… so it’s not mine- at least it hasn’t been for many, many, years- but my little girl did rock a Baby Dior Christening gown for her ceremony while we were in Atlanta. Clearly my mother started me off loving fashion at a very young age (and also fostered my rebellious spirit- who else wore yellow for their Christening!).
Of course being able to reuse the gown for my own daughter was very special. I was so happy my mother had kept it all of these years. One of the ribbon’s on the bonnet had begun to fray, but Lukus was able to find a match and replace it—making the gown as good as new!
The whole thing got me thinking about family heirlooms and what not. Clearly special clothing is saved in our household and can later be maintained as a keepsake, or have a second life thanks to a younger generation.
My question to you is, what do you do with special clothing items- be they Christening gowns or Wedding gowns or something else?!
