Vintage Style Icon


I recently posted some photos sent in by Leif of his stylish Swedish grandmother and asked if he would send in some more. He wrote me back and attached the pictures above and a little note about his grandmother Olga.

He writes, "Glad you liked the pictures.My grandmother Olga was born 1890 in New Mexico, grew up in Florida and married my Swedish grandfather when only 18. They met in Paris where he romantically proposed on the Eiffel tower. She was most innocent and had no idea how children were conceived.She had 9 children. Her wisdom: Always be kind to other people. Never be afraid of anything. Be original."
