Stop comparing yourself to other girls, no matter how pretty, clever, cool or cashed-up they are.
No one will ever have your unique twist of talents, perspectives or beauty.
You do enough. You have enough. You are enough.
Stop comparing yourself to other girls, no matter how talented, well-dressed, popular or capable they are.
You improve the world more than you can possibly comprehend, just by being true to who you are every day.
Go outside & be fabulous. Watching who you are, & seeing what you’re becoming, makes us so proud to know you. The world delights in your presence. We all love you very much.
People often email me saying,
“I’m (insert age) & (insert size), what should I wear?”
There is no real answer to this. No one “should” wear anything, except for something that makes them happy. Just because you think you’re too young, old, skinny or big, that doesn’t have anything to do with what you wear.
Curvy girls don’t have to dress to de-emphasise their shape, just like girls with little boobs don’t have to dust bronzer on their chest in an elaborate pattern so they can create the illusion of big breastisses. The whole concept is ridiculous. What is beautiful to me is not necessarily beautiful to you, & vice versa. Different things appeal to different people, & that’s wonderful! Who wants a homogenised society?" -Gala Darling
Even though we differ on many points regarding fashion. I see my mother's influence in my tastes and style. Such as the love of a clean line a la Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn.
This image comes to mind when I think about my mom's influence on my style.
Here are two cool features that celebrate the style of our Mothers.
All About our Mothers, New York Magazine did a feature on daughters who talked about their mother's wedding dresses.
"The wedding-day photo—on a mantel or in a yellowed, dog-eared album—is the first evidence that our mothers had a life before us. They got dressed up, they were beautiful, and they were in love. Here, fourteen New York women share the stories and pictures of their parents’ big day."
The blog My Mom, The Style Icon celebrates the awesome style of the women who bore us, with the apt tagline "Their Style Was Born Before We Were"
Some pictures of some stylish Mamas
Jane Birkin, the Hermes Birkin is named after her.
Jackie Kennedy, such a cute snapshot.
Princess Di, you can tell she just loved being a mom.
You know how people mention that you should have a go to look that isn't sweatpants for when you're in a rush or just need to head out to the store for a head of lettuce or whatever, yeah well this is it.
Chic. Simple. Easy. Perfect.
Anyone could pull similar pieces from their closets.
