My first style influence......

 My mother ......was definitely the one who most influenced me in my love of all things stylish.

Throughout her life, no matter the year, she always was stylish ....

and oh so 'put together'

It is from my mother I developed the love of all things ' accessories'

It is from my mother I developed my love of clothes...

the love of all the 'pieces' that make up an 'outfit'

the love of all things accessorized

My love of dressing for occasions

From my mother I learned to dress not only myself...... 

 but also...... to dress my family.

From my mother I learned to show my family love, by dressing them well.

Happy Birthday
Mother!
Thank you so much for all the style and love you have given me!
I love you!

  4. This was a suggested post at the bottom of today's, and what fun. I never realized how much Ellis as a child resembled your childhood features, and you resemble your Mother's features. Thank you for posting these family photos, providing a glimpse into your influences. I appreciate as well, the influence of your Mother upon your style, as I've been gifted with enjoying the view for so many years!
