Where Did You Inherit Your Love of Fashion?

My mom made her dress (that lace is gorgeous!) and mine for my christening.

Hey all! Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! It’s a day to celebrate moms everywhere, be they moms to human kids or fur kids. 🙂

I’m paying tribute to my mom, who passed away 17 years ago (and miss so much!) and gave me my love of fashion. She could design and sew just about any style I admired (made a gorgeous prom dress, evening gown, and my 1st wedding dress). If she were here today, I know she would be amazing on Project Runway! Like me, she could appreciate a great vintage find, recycle a hand-me-down, and marvel over a bargain. I sure wish I inherited her ability to sew, but I lack the patience! I miss and love you, Mom.

Speaking of bargains, Mom would’ve loved this dress I got recently from Fashion to Figure. I love the “painting style” of it, and the color is my favorite color of blue! Fashion to Figure is a great site for we curvy gals (sizes 12-24), where the on-trend styles are very affordable, plus the fit and quality receives high marks from me.

Give your Mom a call, a hug, a dinner. And if you’re a Mom, enjoy your special day!

My hubby surprised me with a brunch to celebrate his “furry baby mama.” Ha ha! Love this man.
