Celebrating a Life and Her Style

This blog is definitely a place for happy shiny people and pretty pieces of clothing. But today, I want to steer away from that a little bit to pay homage to a great lady. My husband’s mother passed away a few weeks ago and her funeral services are today. It’s definitely been a tough few weeks but I think now is the time to start to celebrate her life, the person she was, and since this is a fashion blog, her style. We found some pretty awesome pictures of her from back in the day. One of which I’m pretty obsessed with. Who knew she was such a fashionista?

I love this picture of her at the Empire State Building. I am dying over her jacket and bag. Very chic in 1971. Then there is her prom dress which is sooo pretty. I wanna go back in time and wear that to my prom.

Then there is the striped shirt, flippy hair,cute bathing suit. All so very 70’s and it’s so much fun. I now have a little bit of vintage shopping inspiration. I’m glad I had the chance to know Linda and I’m sad she left way too early. But it’s so great we have this pictures to remember her….and her fashions.

    I have lots of photos of Linda to find and get to you. She was a beautiful person and I am grateful to have known her and call her friend. We played tennis and then swam in the pool – nice! She almost always beat me at tennis. She also was the babysitter for Jeff and Jodi, our first 2 children. I saw Linda all bundled up on a very cold day heading up the Streeter Road about a week before her home going. Praying for you all. Warm regards, Nora Therrien
