LOTD 7-22-2011
This look was inspired by the lovely jacket from d. Select that reminds me of one of my treasured possessions is an old quilted jacket. I was lucky to have known my great-grandparents, and even luckier to have two of my great-grandparents still alive and well into advanced age.

52 Weeks of Color: Week #3 – Goldenrod
