Fashion Parade In Memphis

It was so much fun having my sister Cary and her daughter, Frances in Memphis when I was there.Frances is close to the same size that Momma was in college, so Frances went thru Momma's old party dresses and tried many of them on.

Frances knows a lot about websites that deal in vintage clothing and may try listing a few. She said that some people buy older ball gowns and such just to take them apart and use them for patterns.

Here you can see Frances modeling Christian Dior, etc....One photo has Momma, the original Party Girl and Frances standing in the doorway to the living room.

Cary modeled a 100% cotton plaid picque formal that was mine in high school. We both still remembered that it came from Sears, of all places, as they had a special fashion show to celebrate the Cotton Carnival and had a special 100% cotton in store mini-boutique that year.

On the day I drove back to G.S. , Cary , Frances and Daddy stood waving me off in the driveway. You can see the U-Haul in my rearview mirror.
