we welcomed back home our '59 Cadillac!
"She" was away for several months for restoration.
My husband imported it 22 years ago,
and we drove so much with it...
from Britain to Spain!
Even in winter, so "she" needed urgent care!
So we took my Chevy to pick up "her sister"...
The weather was just perfect
to drive a vintage car!
And here is my outfit for that special day:
2 colors that I used to never worn...
All this outfit was built around this gorgeous 50's skirt!
I used to think that yellow was not a color for blondes...
but I changed my mind...
pairing yellow with brown is just a classic!
I'm really surprised to see how many times
I wore yellow shoes this summer...
Any vintage girl needs yellow shoes in her life!
My skirt had a music theme...
So I thought this copper set was just a perfect match!
I found the bracelet in an Antiques Mall in L.A.
and I found matching booch and earrings on Ebay.
It's fun to bring back a set all together!
I love that so frenchy purse!
And I can see that...
we matched again!
moreover he wore a brown jacket in the morning!
Yellow and brown...
and a touch of orange for him!
It took me many years to convince him
to restored this car...
it was hard to find a trustfull person to do the job.
but now it's done, he is really happy with the result!
His Cadillac will be soon in the same condition than my Bel-Air.
Do you think that yellow can suit blonde?
Have you ever restored a vintage car?
Hier était un peu spécial... nous avons accueilli à nouveau à la maison notre Cadillac 59! Elle avait quitter notre garage il y a quelques mois pour subir un bon lifting... après des années de bons et loyaux services, elle avait bien besoin d'un petit coup de jeune pour nous suivre encore des années dans nos périples à travers l'Europe! Nous avons donc pris ma Bel-Air pour la chercher... Et une fois de plus, nous étions assortis!!! 2 tenues autour du jaune et du marron... bref, une bien belle journée!
