Grandma Mitchell

The Sartorialist is currently running a vintage photo challenge to determine the winner of the Celine inspiration book he’s looking to give away.  I submitted this photo of my grandmother that was taken in Boothbay Harbour, ME in 1940. She’s 24 here and absolutely adorable. I love her long jacket over the sweet short cardi and how her striped skirt mimics the stripes in the American flag behind her. It’s such a quintessential New England scene.

If you have great old photos, be sure to submit them to the vintage photo challenge. But hurry, last day is March 3oth!
