To enter, narrow down the best piece of style advice your mom ever gave you and leave it in the comments section of their giveaway announcement. It's also worth checking out some of the very practical advice from other people's moms. I'm learning a thing or two.

Cool-as-$#!#@ blogger Kendi Lea, of Kendi Everyday, is doing a giveaway for My Mom Style Icon. You may have heard of her 30 for 30 remix project, which challenges people with packed closets and short attention spans to limit themselves to 30 items indefinitely. Make that 31, if you count MMSI the book. Leave a message in the comments section of her giveaway post and enter to win the book just in time for mother's day.

I went to Old Hollywood, one of my favorite vintage stores in my Greenpoint neighborhood, with Lucky Magazine for serious tip session. Remember House of Style? It's kind of like that only no models.
