My grandmother passed away a few years ago but my mother is still rocking her awesome style. This year when I was seeing everyone pin white pants for fall I started getting super nostalgic about the fashion rules my grandmother used to talk about. Thankfully my mom is no longer a huge stickler for no white after labor day, but I can’t help but feel like my grandmother would not be pleased if she was alive. There were just some fashion rules that were sacred to a proper woman like her and white after labor day is one of those rules. Sorry Grandma.
My Grandmother and Mother were quite stylish and often we shopped together when I was a child. We would all go to Dillard’s and go to our prospective departments, except for me until I was 13 because my mom was paranoid about me being kidnapped. The end of season sales were prime shopping time for all of us. I remember going to what I called the “old ladies” section of Dillard’s to see my grandma and listen to them talk about saggy boob issues. Then I would go to my mom who wasn’t as fun because well, grandmas are just more fun when you are a kid. Anyway, I always remember they talked about how one could not wear white after labor day. That rule was hardcore around my house growing up.
