Last week, in hope of finding High Park’s sakura trees in full bloom, le boyfriend and I set out on a little photo expedition. To our disappointment, however, the blossoms were nowhere to be found…one week too early. Oh well, we had a great day regardless! Sunny days make everyone so happy, including puppies, ducks and grown men. I was also excited to be wearing my new blue dress! Technically, it’s not at all special – it’s just Forever 21, but the thing is that my grandma used to have a dress that looked very similar to this one and it took me a while to actually snatch it up in my size (some techniques involved stalking the store’s hold section, and checking the website obsessively every few minutes).
So yeah, the dress is awesome! I also love the earrings…they are malachite and they actully belonged to my grandmother – only one of the few pieces of her jewelry that I was able to save. Nowadays, I wish my mom had kept more of my grandma’s things, so that instead of buying a “Made in China” dress to invoke memories of my beautiful grandmother, I could actually wear a piece from her own wardrobe. Le sigh. Do you have any special items in your closet that belonged to someone close to you? Share in the comments.
I Wore: Dress – Forever21; Jacket – Arden B; Bag – Zara; Boots – Guess; Earrings – My Grandma’s
