Mom likes functional fashion. It's cold outside, wear a scarf! There's no reason to freeze your butt off because you think you're too cool to stay warm.
Mom likes classic styles. See that coat? Yeah, it's black. That's not going out of style. Put your money to good use by buying things that can be worn year after year after year.
Mom likes funky footwear. I think her shoe closetS are pretty insane. It's a shame we're not really the same size because she pretty much does have a multitude of different styles and colours. Conservative shoes are great, but her eyes go for funky prints and ornaments. Statement shoes, yes?
Mom likes "bling". Which is what we call anything sparkly or sequin-y. She's kind of like a little kid with this. If she sees something shiny in a store, it'll almost always catch her eye and she'll go straight for it.
Mom likes sales. Another note on the skirt, she watched it like a hawk until the price went down. Why buy things full price? They almost always go on sale. Or you can find a cheaper alternative.
Mom says that crimson red's our colour. A little hard to see in the photos, but in light of this teaching, I'm wearing crimson red lipstick. The only problem with always going for things that are "your colour" is that I now have a little more red than I need.
Mom says to dress to impress. Because you never know who you might run into, right? Then again, she said this before her dog-walking clothing slum started. That's right, I just called you out in public!
