My Favorite Clothes -- Day 1 of 7

Earlier in the spring I received a package from my eldest Aunt with a beautifully written note inside. This aunt was a BOMBSHELL back in the 60's. Aware of my love for vintage clothing, she had sent me three dresses she used to wear. One was a 60's navy blue wet look mini dress, and the other two were Mexican dresses that my late Grandmother had bought for her long ago. The package had made me cry. . . I was very close to mi Abuelita and she was such a beautiful, classy, and stylish woman. (In fact, LoLa was her nickname, and the shop is named after her) ;)

Such a sweet and thoughful gesture of my aunt! I'm incredibly grateful. This aqua blue Mexican dress is one of those pieces of clothing I will ALWAYS hold on to! I've already worn it so many times.

It's gauze with lovely lace trim on the pockets and floral embroidery on the neckline and in front.

I love pairing it with a skinny belt and one of my favorite pairs of shoes at the moment. Gold metallic flats!

I want to post the other Mexican dress tomorrow. It will be very obvious during this week how much the Mexican & Spanish side of me has influenced my style! :)
