Ashley and I have often spoke of our grandmother, Mildred Dorrell Oliver, who we believe Ashley got her fashion sense from. This is Mildred in the late 50s or early 60s. This is a Christmas photo as you can see from the poinsettia. Grammy (our nickname for her) is wearing a dark colored slimming sheath dress. I believe it was linen. Look at the simple beads on her neck. The perfect touch, even now, 50 years later!
Grammy worked in a pharmacy and always looked very nice. She liked to wear accessories but was also frugal and bought pieces that looked good with many items.
I didn't mention, but next to her is my grandpa, Joseph Issac Edward Oliver.
