I've been through so many fashion phases. Some awesome (early 90s, anyone?) and some pretty catastrophic (late 90s, anyone?). My mom has always been a consistently chic dresser. Even on her casual days, she looks elegant. One thing I did get from her was the 'minimalist meets unexpected' approach. Like I've said before, I love a simple palette with a fun accent piece (or two), like all white with a leopard shoe.
