When I come by vintage items, I am always curious about those who wore it before me...this gorgeous dress was loaned to me for this shoot by my boyfriend's Mom, Jo-Ann, and while I know she and her sister wore it, I am unaware of the journey the dress has made beyond that. What I love, however, is that I have now become a part of its history.

These photos were taken by the wonderfully talented Kaylen Jolly(as were these and these)and I am sending out a big thank you her way for capturing the beauty of this gown in these shots, and to Jo-Ann for giving me the inspiration for this post and for sharing this very special dress with me ♥
