My Mom, the Style Icon

May 12, 2011 8:35 AM

In honor of Mother’s Day, we encourage you to check out Brooklyn writer/actor/ all ‘round cool chick Piper Weiss’ blog,  My Mom, the Style Icon. Inspired primarily by the amazing 1960s-70s style of her own mother, Marilyn, the site invites you to submit photos of your own maternal fashion influence to be featured on the site.

I think my mom, Carol, would make the cut. She was adventurous with her hair, she wasn’t afraid of color and if she liked something, she bought it in mutiple colors.

Piper’s blog was recently turned into the book My Mom, Style Icon (Chronicle Books) and can be purchased online on Indigo or Amazon.

Watch the charming trailer for the book, featuring Piper and her muse, Marilyn.

In advance of Father’s Day, you might also want to nominate dad for Piper’s companion site to My Mom, Style Icon – Don’t F*** With Dad.
