Retro Friday

February 14, 1957, Evans City, Pa.

My mom and dad were high school sweethearts from the time they were 16. This was a Valentines Day dance and my mom wore a dress of light blue. My dad bought her the necklace and earrings she is wearing and they are the same color as her dress.


My mom gave the set to me years ago, so I can show you how pretty the color is.


Here's a photo from another dance they went to. I love the clothes; such glamourous high schoolers.

Aww, Such a sweet photo of them. I made my daughters prom dress from a 1952 dress pattern, so she kind of looks this way. I wish more girls would wear pretty dresses like this to their prom, instead of what I keep seeing.

You are a real combination of your parents. It is so fun to see genetics at play!
