I'll start off with a few things: 1. My Mom: great, classic style and wow, what a seamstress! She sewed almost all my clothes and my brothers' too when we were kids and they looked as good as anything in a store! She taught me the value of looking for good, classic pieces...even better when they're on sale! 2. Both my grandmothers: one loved to knit and sew and would knit the most AMAZING sweaters for me every Christmas. I'm talkin' great sweaters here, not dorky or frumpy things you would be embarrassed to wear. She taught me to sew too! My other grandmother always dressed to the nines in St. John Suits, Ferragamo shoes, BV bags and white gloves with her hair and makeup immaculate. And she loved to take me shopping! 3. My Dad: always looked SO handsome in his suits and fabulous ties every single day! Now he's retired and it's polo shirts and khakis 4. Vogue magazine: I was about 10 when I was in a salon for a haircut and picked one up and...the angels sang...I wanted to be a model, or at least wear those clothes! Who inspired you?
