So beautiful! I'd love to know what your grandparents think of your style. Do they love it? Make suggestions?

Dakota said...

Aww, it's like the stereotypical Grandma's house... all bright and retro and adorable! I love your outfit, of course; what a sweet look!

Erin said...

Your grandmother's house is exquisite! I especially love the cuckoo clock, and the table and gorgeous atomic print chairs! wow.
I can't believe you made that cardigan yourself! So clever. Your shirt is so pretty, i love the colours!

Wow, lovely details and so pristine! I can almost feel the scent of flowers and dessert in the air. :)

Great sunglasses by the way!

Your grandmother's house and your outfit are more outstandingly adorable! I will be passing along that cardigan pattern to my sister... since I'm not the least bit crafty! ;)

You just ooze class and style VV, you really do. Just effortless. Like everyone else, I love your grandma's chairs. I have a 50s formica table in my house, but would love some matching chairs. But retro table and chair sets are highly collectable in Australia and sell for around $600 (!) (in good condition). My ideal set would be cream formica table and red chairs-yay! Thanks so much for letting us into your grandmas' house! VS

I really do love how you dress head to toe vintage. Transports me back to a time when clothing was AMAZING. Thanks for blogging with a true passion for vintage. It's really inspiring!

Vintage Girl said...

Those jeans remind me of a pair I had in the 80's so cute in you.

dawt said...

I have a vintage footstool that matches the dining room chairs exactly! You're adorable!

Thanks for linking to the cardy pattern. It looks lovely on you

toridawn said...

The outfit is totally adorable, but the house...oh, my! Grandma seems to be very daring...all those colors on the walls, the cute knick-knacks. I'm in LOVE with that kitchen table set. Been looking for one like that for years for our place. Great post, Solanah.
