Ellie's Look Book
I love looking at old pictures of my mom, and comparing what her style was when she was at a similar phase in her life as I am now. Its strange how times have changed. She always looked put together. I cant remember a time when she DIDNT have lipstick on!
Her hair was always perfectly coiffed, her clothes were always just so, and her makeup was always perfect. As a child, I dont believe i have EVER seen my mom in sweats! She was always a fashionista, and didnt even know it. Still till this day, she remains true to herself. Her hair is whiter, but still perfectly poofed! Her clothes are more casual, but her style is still with the times. Her makeup isnt as prominent, but just enough so she always looks Fab!
To my mom Ellie:
She is still beautiful inside and out. If I can be half the mom she is, my life would be complete. She always had dinner on the table, no matter what, and it was always delicious. She taught me that its not important whats on the table, as long as the family is together for that 15 minutes a day. She always did without, so we could have more. This is where her creative talents kept her in Style. How about that HOT PINK Dress, or that cute bikini? She made them...I KNOW!!!!!
She always, painstakingly, sees the good in EVERYONE, and even when she almost "cant" see it, she prays for them. Its because of her I have learned to "make do with what Ive got"...and its because of her I cant sit still, because theres always something I can be doing. And most importantly, its because of her I stop to look in the mirror before running out the door and hear her saying, "wheres your lipstick, Jame, you look tired." Thats a good thing, because now I make that extra effort to care about me, as she did for herself, to be the FASHIONISTA that she always will be...I love you momma...
