In The Fashionista's Closet: Mother Sucker

Went to visit my mother for Mother's Day. I love that woman. I'm a sucker for my mother. My mom has always been my biggest cheerleader, giving me hope when I had none, building me back up when I was at my lowest.

Top: H&M
Necklace: (Chain belt doubled up) Sam Moon
Skirt: H&M
Bracelets: InPink, Forever 21
Shoes: Steve Madden
My mom was a teen mom (before it was on MTV) and she's always had high expectations of me. She has always wanted better for me than what she had but what I really love about her is that she was never a victim of her circumstances.


We didn't grow up in the lap of luxury and for the majority of my childhood, my mom raised me and my sister as a single mom (before she met my stepdad and my youngest sister was born.)


But we never went without the necessities or wants for that matter. Now, as an adult, I know that my mother struggled but I never felt that as a child.


She told me that she never wanted us to know how tough it was and I didn't for a really long time. And that enabled me to be a kid. And for that, I am grateful.


Even though my mom thinks that I am too hard on myself, she has always respected whatever decisions that I make and been there whenever I have needed her. But she's also tough when I don't want her to be but need her to be. And I know that whatever comes my way, she will always, always show me unconditional love.  

My mom is a talented artist, a social butterfly, she's loyal to her friends and dependable to a fault. She's a voracious reader, quick witted, generous, constantly open to trying new things and loves to laugh. I'd like to think that I've inherited a little bit of some of what makes me and everyone else love her so much.


Happy Mother's Day to my mommy.


She's the absolute best.....

Black suits her a lot and that was a nice way to wish mother's day greetings. That really looks special.

モンクレー ダウンというと、本当に独特なブランドのことがありました。monclerということはフランスのヒマラヤに近付いたGernobleの小さい街のMonestier de Clermontから出来上がりました。この日から、登山向けの服を生産するRene Ramillionは第二世界戦争に服を提供するために、フランスの有名なLionel Terrayと知り合いになりました。1952年、カナダから国へかえってから、Rene Ramillionと見合わせました。それで、二人は一緒に世界のファッションブランド品を生産することにしました。ですから、今、モンクレール ジャケットを作ってくれました。さらに、あの日から、Moncler Mokaがすごく人気になりました。
