All of Grandma’s clothes were in good condition from her high school and college days.

In her TikTok video, Smith held up a photo of her grandma when she was young and showed the family resemblance in her smile.

She rummaged through her grandmother’s closet, starting with a bright pink dress with a delicately embroidered yoke.

Next came a two-piece set in a cool sea green.

The mid-rise skirt pairs perfectly with a vest-style bodice with large lapels and six vintage buttons.

Smith posed and then darted towards the camera for her transformation.

In a flash, she wore an orange A-line dress.

The off-white color scheme was totally retro, as were the star-shaped cutouts at the waist.

Next, she wore a green dress with a similar hemline.

This style featured a molded bustier and white lapels that matched cuffs at the sleeve ends.

Turning slightly, Smith revealed the tie at the back of the green dress.

In a twist, the last dress Smith wore was one she made herself, using the pattern from one of her grandmother’s other outfits.

Viewers were blown away by the super stylish collection.

“Total bang from the past. So cute,” one fan wrote. “Grandma had a great sense of style and fashion.”

Another commenter said: “The first pink is CLASSIC! I love the orange too!”

Countless admirers commented that Smith’s orange dress was the best of them all.

Some even offered to buy the dress or the pattern.

“I NEED THE ORANGE DRESS,” wrote one frantic commenter, yelling in all caps.

Smith wasn’t upset by the demand, however. “IT’S SUCH A VIBE,” she wrote back, clearly understanding the fervor.

Some commenters loved the dresses, but for nostalgic reasons – like a woman who had similar clothes in her own college wardrobe.

“I knew it was the ’70s because I recognized some of the styles,” she joked.

“I can’t believe how each piece is so pristine after so many years,” said one incredulous fan.
