thanks mom

Today I was poking around my mom’s closet and was compelled to try on her beautiful vintage Oscar de la Renta bolero jacket. It’s velvet and the beaded detailing is canary yellow. Like my mom I’ve always had a thing for 40’s bolero jackets…I want to find one to wear with jeans. If I could find the right pair of high waisted jeans to wear with this I would! For trying it on today though I wore it with a bandage skirt by the Row and patent ankle strap Alaias.

Didn’t actually wear it out though. Today I’m just cleaning house with my family, watching Dynasty, and spending some quality time with my dogs. I’m wearing a piece of my mom’s old clothing line right now-her Russian wedding skirt. It was one of her best sellers. I wear it with a sweater by Velvet and…bare feet!

    Your mom has a clothing line? Wow! You should tell us more about it. Isn’t being swathed in ruffles the best feeling ever?

    thanks guys! :)
    my mom (judy aldridge :P) retired her line in ’93…she went by Atlantis Underground and specialized in cotton batiste basics. I raid her dead stock all the time! (yes, being swathed in ruffles is the best feeling EVER)
    i started wearing her old stuff when i was like 10…i look pretty ridiculous in this skirt when back then! haha…still love to wear her stuff though!
    she still makes clothes all of the time, she’s launching a website for her new stuff soon. :)
    oh and i’m not sure on the Oscar de la Renta but it’s definitely 80’s (VERY dynasty glam haha!)
