For the next two weeks, Second City Style Magazine
is dedicating our pages to our fashion inspirations and style
teachers…our mothers in honor of Mother’s Day. Check out this week’s

Through this exercise writing about my mother’s influence on my sense of style (addiction to all things fashion) I have come to the realization…I was doomed since birth.
I never thought of my mother as a clothes horse, rather a woman who
prefers quality over quantity, the French method of dressing. Yet, last
