When this book landed in my mailbox, I couldn’t put it down. Looking through some old-school photos of other people’s stylish moms, reading their stories, made me go right back to my own family photo album. My mom has a few photos that I really love to look at…especially from the 80’s, with her short black hair, high-waisted jeans, and cool sweaters – in those snapshots, she is the epitome of 80’s style – young, cool and not at all mommy-like. Makes me wish I had more photos of her from those days.
“Moms are people, too…fashionable people! Before we came along to yank on their skirts, they showed leg, sported killer bangs, and flaunted bikinis. Some even wore feathers and halter tops and drove around on motorcycles. Was their style shocking? Yes. Covetable? Absolutely. Based on Piper Weiss’s hugely popular blog of the same name, this book features 200 color photographs from decades past of moms showing us how it’s done. A perfect gift for mothers, daughters, and style mavens, My Mom, Style Icon is an entertaining celebration of the very first—and most important—style icon in a young woman’s life.”
