A little while ago, I talked about how I was not impressed with FIT's vintage dress collection, and mentioned my mom's awesome collection. When we went to T. at the end of July, I took some pictures of her beautiful dresses, shoes and hats. Here are some of my favorites.

This is a beautiful pink lace vintage 50's formal. It has rhinestones along the neckline, a cute lace bolero and a belt. This also is a vintage purse- so cute!

green velvet, yellow velvet, orange velvet, pink flowers, feathers, leaf hat
Here are some of my favorite hats. I have worn the yellow and green ones on different occasions. I love how the yellow one fits over curly short hair. The gorgeous pink and oranges ones are new to me. My mom must have added them to her collection while I was at college.

tiered dress, handsewn beads, mauve
This dress is from the 40's I couldn't get a good picture of the whole thing is it is broken up in some pieces. I wore this dress when my sister's and I would perform songs from the Andrew sisters. I love it so much!

light blue, teal, ruffles, crepe
This was one of the most treasured dresses in my mom's collection. It is from the 30's and is absolutely gorgeous. My younger sister wore this one when we would perform. The skirt is cut and the bias, so when it is on a body, it looks so beautiful.

silk flowers, drop waist

This is also new to my mom's collection. This is from the 20's and is incredible. Nobody is allowed to wear this one. Can you believe all the detail and the lace?
