My Mothers Wrangler Bluebell Denim JeansAs I was folding my Mothers Wrangler Blue Jeans, I realized that these pair of jeans have been worn for over 65 years by three generations of women in my family. I remember my mother wearing her "old" jeans during her home improvement projects. I always loved the shape and color of these wranglers, from the stove pipe leg and side zip waist, to the unique wrangler patch on the back pocket. My Mother told stories of how she wore them in high school, rolled up with penny loafers. When I was finally big enough to wear these fabulous jeans, I stole them out of her closet and they became a staple in my wardrobe all through my high school years. I never purged these denim jeans and carried them with me throughout my life, they kept me connected with my mother throughout my adult years. When my daughters started high school, the tradition continued and they raided my closet, just as I did, and started wearing these unique Wrangler Blue Bell Jeans. But this time, not with penny loafers but with there own twist of footwear. Everytime I see one of my daughters wearing these jeans, I snap a photo and send it to my Mother, to remind her of the unintended tradition she started 65 years ago.

LPDstudios Style - Shopping for Vintage with Daughters
April 19, 2018
Just because your a mother doesn't mean you can't have a bit of style fun on your own special day! I just love the bold graphics of this dress from Mara Hoffman Raylin that we found on Anthropologie. The embroidered floral pattern gives it that extra special touch. And, we can't forget the accessories. We paired this amazing little number with our very own Shiny Citrus Yellow Mini Shopper Tote with Bird. For your ears we've added our Vintage Pumpkin Orange Leather Floral Earrings with Sterling Silver Hoops and Rivets. Finally, this Monett Strappy Pump by Athena Alexander in blue suede with its pointed toe and skinny heel from Nordstroms adds a bit of class to this dress's whimsical charm.

Today's style board is a light and bright color story for all of those battling the winter time blues!I came across this Audrina Lace Top by Anthropologie on Pinterest, and fell in love! The lace overlay, small fray detail and scallop edging make it a classic and timeless top. It's made exclusively for Antrho by a brand called Eri + Ali, and they have a few other really pretty white peasant style tops, all with different types of eyelet details and silhouettes. They are perfect spring-time wardrobe staples!To accesorize this fresh, spring inspired look, I paired the lacey top with my LPDstudios Gold Bronze Flower Earrings with Satin Finish and Tapestry Printed Leather Tote with Tassels. Two of my favorite pieces that accessorize this dainty look so nicely. Both accessories have soft, nature inspired designs and yet striking in the beautiful bronze and marigold hues.I know we have a little ways to go before I can put away the winter coats, but it does feel nice to daydream.

I absolutely love these vintage winter coats!! Even though they are designs ranging from the 1930's - 1960's, they are all still relevant in today's fashion and I would wear them all.
You can see some design attributes were popular across decades, like the big collars, oversized buttons and trimmed sleeves. But each coat is so unique! From boucle capes, to cinched waists, to trapeze swing, I love all of the silhouettes. And the colors! They are all such beautiful shades of natural colors.
