She wore a rasberry beret
To my mom, Rickie,
She passed away from pancreatic cancer four years ago at 57. From the time I can remember, she was a style icon! In my teens, I was somewhat embarrassed by her sense of style, but always admiring of her ability to be daring when most mom's all had that "mom" look. She always encouraged me to be myself - own it, live it, love it! I miss her terrible on Mother's Day and every day. She will always be my style icon and role model.
This is one of my favorite pics of her taken in the mid-80s. Of course, I always think of Prince's song "Raspberry Beret" when I see this pic!
Love, Chenoa Woods
