Hello Yellow! My mom used to wear this bright terry cloth dress as a swimsuit cover-up in the 70's. I wasn't alive then, but I certainly wish I could have seen it on my momma. Once I saw the dress I could instantly picture mom's tiny frame elegantly poised in this flowing, and oh-so retro, maxi dress. At my age (26), my mom was 4 inches taller and 4 pounds lighter than me. She was 5'7" weighing in at 98 pounds dripping wet; certainly not tall enough to be a model, but she could have fooled me. She was just so naturally thin - she even said she ate cake everyday for weeks before her wedding to try and gain weight for her big day (Oh mom, if only I could eat cake everyday and not be able to gain a pound! It certainly would all go to my hips!).
I belted the dress here, because I'd like to imagine that my mom might have belted it from time to time to emphasize her adorably tiny waist. And of course I wore it with some bright red toe nails, because for 26 years I don't remember mom ever wearing any other color.
Hope you had a happy & sunny weekend.
