Waterfalls and Wide-brims
Hannah Sung sent in two incredible photos of her mother, a bona fide style icon.
"I found the two photos I love best that showcase my mom's rad 70s style. The one with the hat was taken in Korea and the photo of the winter white outfit was taken at Niagara Falls soon after she moved to Canada to marry my dad."
According to Hannah's mom, the white outfit was donated to the Salvation Army which means someone somewhere has this outfit hanging in her closet with a $3 tag hanging off it. Not fair. Any information on the whereabouts of Hannah's dad's glasses might offer some consolation.
This photo also has me wondering if there's an archive of Niagara Falls honeymoon photos somewhere. Maybe in an area restaurant or in the landmark's museum, a wall of brand new couples, decade after decade, standing together in front of an icy, white explosion. Wouldn't that be something.
