AND my mother!!!

 When my sister and I were growing up my mother took us shopping quite a bit. I think she liked to get us away so we could talk. I know I opened up to her a lot on those shopping trips!! She's a smart lady.



One of her favorite places to shop was a department store called Sakowitz. I don't think they are even in business anymore. I thought it was normal for all of the sales people to know her by name. That was just the way it was every time we went to the store. I realized as I got older that it is not the norm!! I think they all remembered her because of how she stood out in a crowd. Beautiful red hair, flawless skin, and always dressed so beautifully!! She also treated everyone well- unless they made her mad- but that is a topic for another blog post!!


Here is my mom with my daughter when M was in high school. I love this picture of my mom because it shows her flawless skin. Her number one beauty advice to me when I was growing up was to always wash my face before I went to bed. I can honestly say that I do not remember a night going to bed without a clean face!! That is one area where I've remained obedient to my mother throughout my life!! 

Me with the three most important women in my life! M, my mom, me and The Suze (my sister). I can't imagine my life without them. My mom has taught us about building a wardrobe and on what pieces to invest. She just believes in always looking your best!!



I would be remiss to not mention that she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Besides teaching me about fashion and style, she taught me so much about living an abundant life. She is a perfect example of a loving wife and mother. She always reminded me of what my grandma (her mother) always said, "Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone." I'll never forget that quote from Grandma!!!




Fashion has been a strong bond for me, my mother, my sister, and my daughter. It is something that we enjoy talking and thinking about. Having it in common has made us very close. We have shared some wonderful moments while out shopping!!

Not everyone thinks that fashion is important, but my mother does. She believes it sets a tone for us and shows people who we are on the inside by how we present ourselves on the outside. She believes in caring about that presentation. She's always said, "You don't have to spend a lot of money on clothes to look nice." But she did teach me that how you present yourself to others matters in life. I do believe that to be true.


All of that and ----wear sunscreen- Yes, Always Wear Sunscreen!!
