geometree 's Thoughts:

this skirt is probably my favorite item of clothing that i own, hands down. it’s not very wearable, but it is very dear to my heart. it was the first item my grandmother gave me from her closet when i was a kid — it lurked in my “dress-up trunk” for ages until i pulled it out again in high school, thinking i could do something with it someday. my grandmother originally made it (plus the matching purple polka-dotted wrap top!) back in the late 60s, when she was a high school art teacher. what a groovy lady, eh? it used to be floor-length, but the print is a little too loud for my tastes when left that long, so i tacked the hem to the waistline in a few places to make the skirt. i like how it turned out.

the box purse was my mother’s when she was in 6th grade and it was apparently a Very Big Deal since they were all the rage at the time and she felt very cool sporting it. i think she was proud to hear that i always get compliments on it when i take it out.

this was my first shoot venturing beyond my porch, with my friend manning the camera this time around. i like how the photos turned out! now i’ll have to be searching for more interesting locations..
