My Mother was a talented seamstress.  I have many memories of her sitting in her sewing room, covered in threads, with one of us impatiently waiting to see the final creation.  Oh my gosh - I can't even tell you how many photographs I have of me and my younger sister wearing matching jumpers and outfits, lol!  The 80's.....such good memories.  Anytime my clothing didn't fit right, I would run straight to my Mother, expecting some sort of miracle.  She was overly patient as she taught me all that she knew about textiles, garment design and alterations.  Even when she had to point out the impossibilities, she never hampered my creativity or my love of fashion.  She taught me to be resourceful - you don't always have to be in an authentic Oscar de la Renta to feel like a princess (or look like one.)  

In the spirit of mother's day, make sure to leave your mom's best advice she ever gave you (about anything!) in the comments below!

You can enter this giveaway through Rafflecopter now through Sunday, May 12th on any of the participating blogs.  Good luck and Happy Mother's Day to all your mamas.

My mom always told me to save and never buy more than you can afford

My mom is a depression era child. She always told me to shop for what me feel good, but be sure you can afford it!

My mom was a firm believer to never buy on impulse or pay retail for something that you didn't need

Would love to follow on instagram, but probably the only person in the universe who doesn't have it, so cannot complete the entries :(

Start at the back of the store with the 70%+ off rack, then SLOOOOWLY make your way forward. You're bound to find something before you hit the regular racks.

actually my grandmother who had wonderful skin even into her 90's told me that all makeup needed to be taken off thoroughly each night and she swore by Ponds cold cream and applied a small amount every night before going to bed.

Your mom was a fab seamstress! I'll never forget that she fixed my wedding dress. I went to her crying because the alterations were horrible, and walked out the happiest girl ever. She helped make my wedding perfect. :)

My grandmother always taught me how important fit is when shopping for new clothes. Thanks for the chance to win!
