On My Mind

Mother & Daughters

This picture of Chloé creative director Clare Waight Keller with her daughters is on my desktop. My daughters have both been home this past week and I’m heading to L.A. with the eldest today. Although my girls are a bit older, we are very close and they, too, are my inspiration. The Waight Kellers certainly illustrate how to wear a white blouse for fall.

  • My daughter has become a keen editor of my wardrobe. Youth makes fashion fresh–collagen is the best accessory!

  • What a sweet photo.

  • My daughters have both been on a bit of a boomerang path, what with post grads and world travel but in one week the youngest is gone for (what feels like in my gut) good and her older sister is settled in a different city as well. Now I will have to skype and text to discuss fashion but we will always trust each other to make the perfect suggestion or critique–even if the recipient chooses to ignore us.

  • My two daughters are like night and day. I love them dearly and cherish the close relationship I have with them both. They are 21 months apart and extremely critical of one another. I wish they would give each other a break, but I do know if the situation arises, they will be there for each other. It was that way for me and my older sister (18 months apart), and now we are close.

  • I have 2 sisters who are 6 and 10 years older than I. None of us spoke for years and years. Now, the younger one is my best friend.

  • My daughter, now 23 and living in LA, is my best inspiration and my best fashion critic, too. I miss her dearly every day, even though we stay in touch via continuous texts and occasional FaceTime. Nothing like a daughter to help you find “relevant and modern” in between “frumpy” and “mutton dressed as lamb”!

  • My daughter is a tween (10 years old), so I’m not really sure if she has a keen fashion sense yet. I take her shopping at Bergdorf and the like, which she loves, but only time will tell. I have two sisters, both younger than me, but I’m the only one with the fashion bug.

  • P.s..just dying for her blue/grey distressed denim…didn’t see in the credits who they were unfortunately.

  • Sending children off to college was a picnic compared to hearing them announce they are moving half way across the country . . . I have two fantastic children but suddenly wish I had had at least three, if not four! I have a real appreciation for larger families at this phase. All I want for Christmas is my family around the table. : )

    Meanwhile, the great white blouse conversation continues!! Just bought the Vanessa Seward high-waist jean to wear with a few of mine, both tucked and out, a la WSJ feature.

  • My 23 year old daughter is in graduate school in Monaco and although she is far away, thank goodness there is face time so if I have a fashion quandry I can call her and get her honest opinion right away!
