American Style and Spirit

 'The way I felt about these older clothes is that it is nice to wear them but that it is also nice to save them...they get increasingly interesting with each passing year.'

This exhibit at the Henry Ford shows 4 generations of the Roddis family's collection of their fashion through the years. Along with the clothes, they saved photos, accessories, memorabilia, letters and more. There were several photos showing the lady with the outfit on display. Everything was in pristine condition. It was apparent that they were a wealthy family and fashion forward for that time. I had to wonder who came up with the idea, "oh, let's save our favorite dresses because in 2016 we can show them all at a museum". I think that the Kardashian girls should consider this idea.

You can see in the photo this suit being worn at a dinner.
