what a bliss!

the wedding dress from approx 1971

I was skyping with my lovely friend from Vienna just now. Today while she was clearing out the her aunt’s house she found the most amazing suitcase and box from her aunt. She immediately had to show me her findings. 
Here are a few snap shots I made from skype.

In the suitcase was the aunt’s wedding dress. It had been in there for 40 years! It’s from the early 70s and is just stunning! Look at those sleeves! The long veil with embroidered flowers!

In the box was the aunt's “confirmation dress” which must be even older. It’s a light minty green and is so now with the Peter Pan collar.

Don’t you think that is an amazing finding?

Have a look at the next two images from the film "the graduate". almost alike!
