Vintage Clothes - Fun Monday


Ms Cellania also known as ChrisB is hosting today's FUN MONDAY and said, "I love blogging because I'm interested (some would say nosey) in people and their lives ....I would like to see a photo of a vintage item of clothes-"

If 1976 is vintage enough for you (bet it is older than some of you) then please take a look at my wedding dress. Some of you may remember the wedding picture. It wasn't fancy and it wasn't white.
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I loved it.

Today I photographed it on the clematis trellis because my bedroom was too dusty.


My granddaughter Buttercup helped me choose the spot and then modeled it as well. She stood on the piano stool and posed in a very professional manner - as any 3 1/2 year old precious blossom would.

"I don't want to take it off, Grandma!" she cried. "I'm a Princess!!"

I remember feeling the very same way.

If you want to see real vintage that we keep wrapped and sealed, you need to check out Oscar's Suit.

By the way, your granddaughter looks darling in your dress. I bet you looked beautiful on your wedding day.

You're such a trailblazer, with all that pink, though. And it was the 70's -- you know all that bra-burning...

Hope to see Me2 on Wednesday!

Hey, did you hear Robin's news?

I love the setting you and Buttercup chose to photograph the dress! Perfect.
Matt said…
Christ, sometimes I find it hard to relate to you people.

Awww, that is so sweet!

That definitely looks like a 70's dress! Perfect style for that era.

OK, your granddaughter is totally adorable. She obviously takes after her grandma, and not that hairy grandpa of hers!

Oh, I am so kidding.He looks like a real 70's style stud muffin!

Buttercup makes a beautiful model. I remember having that style of dress they were the height of fashion. I loved the photos of Oscar's suit that really is a treasure.

Pamela this post led me to so many others with all the links not only have I seen your vintage dress (fab 70's look) but I've had a bit of a history lesson which ended in a few tears.
Steffi said…
Very beautiful vintage dress !Nice to see!

Your granddaughter is a princess, and she has picked a lovely spot to photograph the lovely dress. Sadly, I no longer have my wedding dress.
swampwitch said…
Yes, she is a Princess. What fun to let her model for us.
..your bedroom was too dusty...you are a hoot. As if you could have 'seen' the dust?
Anvilcloud said…
That's a very cool, non-traditional dress.
enidd said…
love it! would be a great dress for sitting in a punt sipping champagne!
deslily said…
how cute she is in the dress!!

I wasn't very traditional either.. would you believe I wore my "prom dress" (it was white) for my wedding?! And it was knee length! I was married in 1965.
Sam said…
i love looking at all these 70s fashions. I guess I was 10 years old when you got married.
Susie Q said…
I think it is wonderful and you looked glorious, as does sweet Buttercup! : )
A true Princess indeed.
I loved the wedding photo...I would kill for a neck that long. You looked gorgeous.
Still do. That's a fact.
The dress is still beautiful, as are you and your husband, after 30 years. We will have our 30th next year. 70s style is very in now huh? You could wear that dress again!
Hugs,
Sue

Good morning Pamela,
Buttercup is absolutely gorgeous in your wedding dress. Loved your wedding photo, despite the perm .. lol. I thoroughly enjoyed the tradition of Oscar's suit. That is very impressive.

Have a great day,
Betty :)
What a lovely dress and Oscar's suit is so very Hummel!! Adorable!
Robin said…
1) OF COURSE, the dust can wait!

2) You ARE a princess...somewhere along the way, I heard you had royal blood running through your veins ;).

3) BC's expression is adorable. I know she had sooo much fun modeling your dress!

4) Even in a short post like this, I love the way you choose your words....:)

What a beautiful dress! The buttercup looks adorable in it as well, what a cutie!
Vicki said…
What a sweet face... if she was closer I'd invite her over to decorate Easter Eggs with us.
kailani said…
What a wonderful moment for you . . . to see your granddaughter in your wedding dress. Who knows, it may come back in style by the time she's older.
Stephanie said…
Yes, you are, indeed, a princess!!

And OH I wish I could hug the little Buttercup!!
Mandochick said…
Oh wow what a sweet dress!! Why do we keep our vintage dresses in the closet where no one can enjoy them!?? What a shame! LOL...

It's hard to believe that your sweet little Buttercup will be able to fit into that dress one day! What a sweet picture - and I love the dress. I only wish young girls would be willing to dress like that today ;)

(*sigh*)

That is just too cute! Love that dress. I sure remember those days...the "good ol' days" -- ha!

Thank you so much for your prayers, you and your group are in mine.

Hugs to you!
Melissa said…
That dress is older than me, but I love it just the same. And buttercup is the best model!
Bibi said…
Buttercup is adorable. I wonder if she'll wear it for real herself one day(?)
PEA said…
Hi Pam:-) Such a lovely wedding dress...you got married the same year I did:-) Your little grandaughter looks so precious modeling the dress for us!! xo
Little Miss Moi said…
Dear pamela. yes, it's older than me. It's beautiful. As one person who didn't get married in white to another, I think your dress is simply lovely and very romantic. I love your model too.
Bobbi said…
I love the vintage post!! It got me thinking about some dresses I found in my parents' attic ... one was a dress I wore to my 8th grade dance and another was my prom dress. I know I dragged them to Indiana, but I think I got rid of them when I moved to Atlanta. Too bad, I would have posted pics of them!
