inspiration: hip grandparents

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/__wgTdCCrfeY/SwFwHIj21_I/AAAAAAAAE50/3Szt_Bl7wRU/s1600/photo.jpg
I'm so moved by this photograph of my boyfriend's grandparents. I framed and hung it on our picture wall yesterday, and I can't get it out of my mind. They look so cool and effortless. I love Nana's Mona Lisa grin and Grandpa's devilish smirk. I want to recreate this shot with our close friends.
Style wise this photo is killing it, I wouldn't mind owning a few inspired pieces:
Alexander McQueen Chunky Buckle Sweater & hand made cloche from yellowfielda yummy little Derringer cycle,
and incorporate a piece I already own and love:

the adorable bow leather driving gloves I am tempted to put on every single morning.

I like photos better from before people always smiled. They look so much COOLER in the old photos.
