Yes, We Can!

My great grandmother was about as sassy and classy as a lady could get in the war years.  When she met my grandfather, she dropped out of nursing school, hopped on the back of his motorcycle and headed to California.  While there she was a waitress at an upscale place and her best customers were Laurel and Hardy (Hardy was the better tipper according to her), and when the US entered the war, my great grandmother got a job working in an airplane factory as a Rosie the Riveter.  For years I had a denim jumpsuit that she owned and probably wore during that time.  It was so adorable.  But over time it's gotten lost like so many other things in all my moving from place to place.  I used to wear her jumpsuit when I was a teenager.  I'd play dress-up around my house with it since it was terribly out of fashion back then.  Yes, I continued to play dress up well into my teens, then I took a brief break to go to college and start a family and now I'm back to dressing up.  Well, it just so happens that denim jumpsuits have come back around as so many great fashions do, and I managed to get my hands on one.  I haven't considered my figure to be suitable for something like this and I sort of tried it on as a joke, but the minute I spun around and looked in the mirror, I remembered my dear granny, whom I am so privileged to have known, and decided to keep and wear this little gem whenever I think of her.

  1. Such a darling jumpsuit. It looks brand new. I cannot believe it is from another time. Very trendy.
