When I grew up, not only did I live in a full house, I had three dads. My real dad and then my Full House dads, Danny Tanner and Uncle Joey. John Stamos was way too cute to be considered anything other than a crush as I’m sure millions of young Uncle Jesse fans and their moms would agree. Watching Full House in the 90’s is a distant memory now, but I’ll never forget one scene in particular during the show’s intro. DJ, Stephanie, Michelle and their ‘dads’ were all playing in San Francisco’s Alamo Square park in front of a street lined with Victorian homes called the “Painted Ladies.”
Yesterday, my sister and I stopped by this same spot with some friends relaxing on Presidents Day. I took some pics of her wearing a fashion find that’s actually from my dad’s wardrobe. Hint: It’s not the sheer pleated maxi skirt.

UPDATE- After many comments on this skirt, I wanted to share a couple similar pleated maxi skirts I found on my rewardStyle account:
Deep Purple Sparkle & Fade Maxi $59.95 here
or Alice + Olivia purple pleated Maxi $396 here
While I was happily surprised to find this denim gem from my dad’s college days; there’s a few other reasons to check your parent’s past statement makers. Guys may find old suits, jackets or even pocket watches from their dad’s or grandpa’s wardrobe they can have altered for a new classic look. Women can find handbags, jewelry, flirty retro dresses or sweaters perfect with a maxi skirt or to pair with a bit of peplum. I know I’ll be saving tons of my clothes for my future daughters some day, and in the mean time I loan them all to my sister.
Also, I want to say Thank You to Abby of SoCal Sophisticate for her touching feature of my ‘Curiousity’ post on her blog. And thank you to Juneli from Fashionable Yours for giving me the ‘Versatile Blogger Award.’ I really appreciate the support
