family portrait, 1954

My grandfather, Keith. My aunty, Carol. My mum, Pam and my nanna, Daphne.
Look at the fashion! I'm currently OBSESSED with old photos.
Nothing better than checking out vintage fashion worn as they did back then.
Everyone was so much more elegant back then, don't you think?
My mother-in-law gives me fashion tips, here are a couple she gave me the other day:
"Back in the day (1950s) we would NEVER wear long pants with heels, strictly flats.
With our skirts, we NEVER wore socks, we were obsessed with nylons."
She said "nylons" - cute.
