The bond between a mother and daughter should be an unbreakable, inseparable, educational experience for both the mother and her daughter. Southern Belles are one of the group of women who fully understand how special this bond is and they practice this bond from birth and beyond. Not only is the bond a learning experience, but it is soulful experience that allows “mama” and “baby girl” to be healthy as they share with each other their troubles, secrets, goals, and accomplishments. The bond is good for mind and body because being able to share ANYTHING with the person who birthed you makes you physically and emotionally stable, and it helps you succeed in carrying out other relationships. Below are ten vintage images of mother and daughter Black Southern Belles.
1. This mother and daughter duo is working their collared blouses. While the mother’s blouse is paired with a nice patterned handkerchief, beautiful hat, pearl earrings, and high-waist skirt; her adorable daughter has a pretty curled bang and nice clean walking shoes with her little cute socks.
Here is another beautiful woman and her gift from above as they gracefully pose for their portrait. The mother is looking gorgeous in her black and white polka dotted dress and matching head wrap paired with pearl earrings. Baby girl has a ribbon wrapper perfectly around her hair to compliment her light colored polka dotted dress coordinating with Mommy.
These Curly Cuties are adoring their moment before the little angel goes to school in her pretty, preppy uniform, cute purse and hat, while Mommy pairs her luscious curls with a nice patterned shawl, denim jeans, and boots.
This happy queen and her two joyful princesses are enjoying having their portrait taken as they all smile with much glee. The mother wears a dark, solid color and her two baby girls are dressed identically in their cute light colored dresses and big bows with topping their lovely curls.
The elegant ladies here look very exquisite in their nice plump, detailed dresses. The little lady has her hair in a nice braid with a big bow to the top and a smaller bow holding her braid. Her fluffy dress has plenty of pretty, detailed ruffles, while her mother’s dress is lace and pearl embroidered with a high neckline, long sleeves, and a nice locket around her neck. Her hair is perfectly pinned.
These two beauties grin slightly as the angel on her mother’s back is dressed in some cute overalls over a dainty collared shirt with her hair slicked up and tied with a ribbon. The mother has her hair slicked up as well with an amazing colored lip and a dark collared blouse.
This sweet mother, daughter team look very cheerful as they may be preparing for bath time in their cozy bathroom. The mother’s dress is really glamorous with its pattern and light colored, solid sleeve cuffs and neckline, and loafers, while her precious little missy has her hair braided with a bow on top, in her neatly creased blouse and shorts, her little cute shoes, and adorable striped socks.
This mother and daughter appear to be in the city and they look very anxious as they sit on their bag. The mother’s hat is carefully laid on top of her hair and her long sleeve blouse is lovely with her shoulder detail. The beautiful daughter has her hair topped with a bow as her pretty dress is paired with her stylish little walking shoes and and socks.
This vintage photograph of a mother with a long dotted dress and head wrap combing her daughter’s hair who is also wearing a beautiful long dress is just pure and priceless.
By the smile on this mother’s face, you tell that her daughter is little sunshine. The pretty little diva is dressed in a lovely patterned dress with lace around her sleeves and collar, while her beautiful mother has a pop of color on her lips, her hair pressed with precision, and a wonderful long sleeved, striped blouse with solid sleeves and a solid collar, with a thin belt around her trousers.
