My mom had a lovely wardrobe. (I spent hours playing dress-ups with clothes she no longer wore.) Depending on the occasion; she wore casual clothes, beautiful skirts and dresses, tailor-made suits, elegant evening outfits, party dresses – always looking gorgeous like a movie star!
My mom would never leave the house with her hair in curlers, as some housewives did during the 60s when they went to the supermarket. Being a hairdresser, every hair was always in place.
In those days we only had one bathroom and my mom got priority. By the time I was a teenager, it was a good thing we moved into a house with two bathrooms. Every woman needs her own bathroom–don’t you agree?
Some people pay more attention on decorating their homes than on their wardrobes. They take better care of their cars than their bodies.
I believe if you take the time to dress well and look your best, you will feel better and be your best. How we look after ourselves is a reflection of our personalities, what we think of ourselves and the value we place on our lives.
My mom was born on August 9, 1926. This post is in memory of her. A remarkable woman and my favourite mother! There will be no huge world-wide celebrations and no Google doodle to commemorate her birthday, but for me, she is my hero!
My one and only mom!!
