Genie jeans, platforms and true love
Errica Iacopini, 26, sends this submission of her mom and dad all the way from Italy and I'm grateful it got to me safely.
"The photo was taken in Rome, Villa Borghese in 1980. My dad is from Rome but he moved down to South Africa to learn English. My mother is Italian but grew up in South Africa. She was working for Alfa Romeo at the time and had decided to go on a Euro trip as she wanted to move to Europe. A work colleague suggested my mum to meet my dad for advice on Rome. The two met and my father said he knew she was the one for him. He still gets wobbly knees for my mum! My mum did end up going on her trip (the strong woman she is) and dad kept calling her to remind her that he was waiting for her!!
This photo is of my parents on a holiday they took together in Italy. I love this photo because they look like such a hip couple. I love my mothers style because not only is she natural beauty inside and out (She did modelling too) but her style is just as fantastic. She has always had a unique sense of style and taught me that to be sexy one doesn't need to bare all. She is such a confident, beautiful, radiant and strong woman and an inspiration for me, i love her so!"
