♥ granny chic.

in case you may have missed the latest resort collection, aptly called
"granny's closet" from online boutique, wildfox couture, on the fabulous
website, honestlyWTF, i believe it is too good not to share with all
the cat loving lady friends who read this blog. enjoy!

going to grandmas house as a kid you don’t really think of her as a young woman, you see her as she is, old and maybe a bit crabby, hilarious and totally picky, wearing outfits she’s had since the 60’s mixed with incredibly funny 80’s sweat suits and orthopedic shoes. you see her napping with a book on her chest, glasses slipping down her nose, her cat perched on the edge of the sofa like a sphinx, it smells like an antique store mixed with something sweet, you try to imagine your mother growing up with her, going to bed in this house, maybe you stare at those sun bleached pictures gran’s got stored away under her huge, white vanity.  her cat ornaments fill the edge of the glass table, 
you try on her pearl earrings and polka dot bangles, sparkling costume diamonds
 and dark red lipstick, looking in the mirror for a second you can almost picture her, 18,
 summertime, crushingover the paul newman look-alike lifeguard at the lake, 
or 21 years old laughing with her girlfriends over gin martinis in nude thigh highs
 and pin curls. it’s hard to imagine that granny, but when you see one of those
 old photos of her it can be fantastically over whelming... 
this is where you came from!

this collection is a tribute to granny and her perfectly mismatched style, her love of cats, jewels, travels and gardening, her hair that she never cuts, the old mansion she bought in the 90’s with the last of her savings, her big glasses she always wears to brunch, and that grandma spirit we all know and adore.
