"Nana" is my great grandma.
I will always remember her as one stylin' lady.
Always wearing her BRIGHT lipstick,
perfectly coiffed WIG,
She was like my real life Elizabeth Taylor;
glamorous with an air of superiority.
But, Nana LOVED her grand babies!
Wet sloppy red Revlon kisses allover
was how she would ravish us.
I loved my Nana.
I believe I inherited her love of fashion and lust for life.
She always made me feel beautiful,
even when I was tall and awkward.
She once said to me and my cuz Christina
(another hardcore fashionista),
"I was always tall and thin like Katrina,
but had big boobs like Christina".
That was Nana....
in her mind she was always the "belle of the ball".
Ain't no thang Nana
we should all have your confidence.
When Nana passed I inherited
a little zip lock bag full of her jewelry.
It is a treasure.
I think style is genetic.
I call these the Black Onyx Clippies.
I'm not sure why, but Nana had all clip-on earrings?
Makes them feel so vintage.
These are Flowers made with a tortoise shell print.
Aren't they killer?
I love them, and they go with EVERYTHING!!!
Okay, it's a hard to take a pic of yourself....
But I had to show how adorable the length
and the clasp is on this string of pearls.
Anyone know how to clean pearls?
I'm worried about ruining the string or discoloring it.
We love you and miss you.
We miss your laugh,
and your big bright kisses!!!
