was your mum a style icon?



My Mom, The Style Icon blog is looking for retro and fashionable pictures featuring your mother for their upcoming book. I'm going to start trawling through some albums to see what I can find, with Mum's permission ofcourse! Hi Mum.

The above images were found via the My Mom, The Style Icon blog, such stylish Mum's they are.

great idea.. mom was no fashion anything.. being the 3rd of five.. my mom was queen of hand me downs and mis matched outfits.. she has hardly kept any of the pictures.

I definitely have some polaroids of my Mom in some stylish duds. Tall white boots and short skirts. Love this.

How do mum's do that? They always so so amazingly stylish! This is a brilliant idea, (I'll have to rummage old photos without telling her though)
