gilberto and ilda ♥

my mom and dad in 1974,
the year before they got married.
these are my favourite pictures of them, they were shot by street photographers in porto, portugal paparazzi style. they would take your picture and then you could buy the shots from them, such a cool idea that i wish was done still.
my parents were so stylish and my mom made most of her own clothes. she's just 19 here.
xxxxooo cindy, thanks for the inspiration.



мне понравился ваш стиль))

These are awesome. And how adorable are your parents. You look so much like your mom! She's gorgeous!

And I totally agree, I wish they still did stuff like that now. If only it was the 70s! Our parents were so cool then lol

Yes, I'm blogging again! I was away from my computer for most of the summer. But now that I'm back in rainy toronto I'm re-interested!

Are you loving your Alexa Chung for Madewell items? Let me know if you're thinking of returning/selling the tea dress.
