Anything vintage tells a story of something bigger than us and knowing that story makes it that much more meaningful. The gold, pearl earrings were made by the hands of my mother when she first came to this country at the age of 18. The paisley skirt, is also a skirt that she wore in her twenties. Never mind the fact that they're beautiful and timeless, just knowing that I have something of hers that I can pass on to my future children is an amazing feeling. Her history may not be in textbooks but it will be documented in photographs for generations.
