Fossil's Vintage Revival Photo Contest

If a picture paints a thousand words, then a vintage photo carries a lot of history and inspiration that transcend time.

Here is the photo I submitted. It's my grandmother and mom at a Farmers' cooperative store in the Philippines back in the late 50's. I chose this one because they're two of the ladies who mean a lot to me. I'm enamored with my grandmother's dress here...the stripes remind me of sunshine rays.

I'm not sure if my photo will end up in the final photo gallery for voting. My previous entry for their "One Sunny Day" Photo contest certainly didn't. Hey, it's worth a try.

So do you have a favorite vintage photo? Dust off those old photo albums and shoeboxed photos and share them with Fossil in their Vintage Revival Photo Contest! (Contest open only to legal US residents and members of the US Armed Forces stationed abroad) Top three photos with the most number of votes win a prize package from Fossil as follows:

That is such a gorgeous photo. I also love your grandmother's dress! It's gorgeous :) Good luck on your entry, I hope you win. All my vintage photos are stuck in storage somewhere in the Philippines. :)

priceless!

looking at this photo, made me recall my mother's old photos... how come in the 1980's or earlier, it seems that it is easier for them to be that slim? mmmm... no fastfood chains, perhaps?

thanks, sinta!

shiera: jollibee was already in existence in the 80's...but the reason people were slimmer in the past i guess was because people ate healthier food, not a lot of processed/microwaveable junk we have these days.
