Mom: The Style Icon
By

Rating
This book, based on a blog of the same name, was born out of the idea that mom's are people, too-fashionable people. Before we came along to spit food in their hair and yank on their skirts, they showed leg, permed their hair, and pranced around in bikinis. Some even wore feathers, halter tops, and drove around on motorcycles. Shocking? Yes. Irrelevant? Never. Flip through the pages of Vogue today and you'll find runway fashions ripped from your mother's long-forgotten closet. And it isn't just their duds that inspired the retro looks of today, it's the way they wore them.
