Church has always been the place where we dress to perfection…
This set of photos was provided by fellow blogger and shopaholic, Chandra of MoMoMod.com.
The beautiful couple hugged up in the first picture (dated in the late 1980s) are Chandra’s parents. Dad is looking suave in his bow tie but her mom is stealing the show! I simply adore the lace gloves and pillbox hat. Now, I see who is responsible for inspiring Chandra’s love for hats and fascinators.
The picture on the left shows Chandra (on the right) with her parents and sister. I love how the girls are wearing nautical-inspired dresses. With nautical being popular in fashion right now, it’s pretty amazing to see how trends come full circle every few years.
Clearly the ever popular phrase “You can’t know where you are going, unless you know where you have been” applies to life AND fashion. What do you think?
