happy birthday

My Gram, Cecile Fields, celebrates her 99th birthday today. A fashionista herself, Gram has always been an important inspiration. During the late 1970s, when I was a little girl, Gram worked in Detroit. She would frequently return to Canada with neat little dresses and faux furs for me. Throughout her life, Gram made all of her own clothes, too. Her style is uniquely classic. I recall many strangers on the street complimenting her pillbox hats and those great dresses, always cut just below the knee. Much love Gram. Endless thanks for the inspiration. XO
