This is a photo of my Grandmother, Marie, in 1945 Southern California, road tripping with her then boyfriend, a fashion photographer. She told me she went out on casual dinner dates to feed herself so she could use her very humble income to buy clothes. A true fashion girl! Isn't she so modern Katherine Hepburn here? From the high waisted pants to the socks with ballet flats. I've been a little nostalgic with the impending holidays and can't resist a good plaid this time of year.
