Publisher Description

This text, based on a blog of the same name, was born out of the idea that mom's are people, too - fashionable people. It shows how, before we came along to spit food in their hair and yank on their skirts, they showed leg, permed their hair, and pranced around in bikinis.

Review

"Every once in a while, a book comes along that makes you smile and laugh and sigh all at the same time. My Mom, Style Icon, by Piper Weiss - published by Chronicle - is just that book." - Alabama Chanin "Is there a better Mother's Day gift than telling your mom you think she's a style icon? Scoop one up for your mother, or just keep it for yourself when you need a little sartorial inspiration-from the woman who always knew best, no less. " -Blackbook magazine "The result is a heartfelt fashion history that honors the women who raised us - and the fab photos of them make you hope chic might be genetic." - Today.com "A sweet homage to maternal chic." - AARP the Magazine "It's perfect for mom because it's an ode to moms everywhere and how they have influenced fashion... It's sure to be a coffee-table favorite."" - AOL "Go ahead and order two copies of this one, because one glance at this coffee-table mainstay and its 200-plus photos of stylish mamas over the decades will make you want to keep it for yourself. It's a read that will both inspire your wardrobe and remind you of the first fashion influence in your life (even if she dressed you in some questionable ensembles)." -Glamour
