Mother's Day: Whishful thinking

The 8th of March is known to be "women's day", but in Russia, where I grew up, this was always "mother's day" by association. So here's to my mom, who took me shoe-shopping as soon as I was able to walk. In Communist Russia. In the snow. In the name of style. Since my mom rarely listens to me when it comes to clothes (recently, there was a dispute over a striped jacket she finally agreed to label as awesome), I decided to build her a "dream wardrobe", courtesy of The Outnet - nothing cheap for the best mom in the world!

I try to put my mom, a well-loved and cool high school teacher, in laid-back jackets and jeans, and also try very hard to make her understand flats are chic. Just for fun, I gave her a super-expensive bag for all her books and sunglasses, too.

For the evening, I've been trying forever to convince my mom to go for maxi dresses. She's tall and slender, yet maxi is a no-go according to her, for being "too old". Wrong! Long lines can be magnificently sexy and youthful.

Also, for an unknown reason, my mom shies away from the luxury a woman her (young) age should, in my opinion, embrace. So I threw in a little velvet, diamonds, and great shoes (yes, FLATS). Happy, stylish, 8th of March, mom! How would you like to dress your mom?
