Tory Burch Celebrates Generational Repelling

…Because I come from a long line of women who have trained their respective male counterparts to look at and admire what goes on beneath the clothes.

This is getting awkward, I’m talking about my grand/mother here.

I thought about how I would celebrate Mother’s Day on le blog but before I could get too deep into the conceptualization process, Tory Burch’s team did the work for me. They thought it important to capture the generations of repelling that came before me. It seems like just yesterday I was but the twinkle in my mother’s eye when my father exclaimed, Please don’t wear that cat suit Can I take you for a drink?” And so a good idea it was, Team Tory, as I am quite literally nobody without the woman to my left, who bore me and even more so the woman to my right, who bore my father, without whom, my mother’s eyeball never would have twinkled.

On my mom: Tory Burch dress, Valentino jacket. On me: Tory Burch dress, Tibi jacket. On my grandma: Tory Burch Jacket, Valentino blouse, Armani scarf.
Here we stand, on my grandmother’s terrace, giggling because, you know, I am funny as shit.
 
You may not know this from looking at these photos, but my mother is wildly prim, proper and elegant. Everything I am not. My grandmother, on the other hand, a huge ball of funny and awesome. A catalyst, at best, she kick started my perpetual love affair with shoes at an early age.
I am scared of her stink-eye though, see below.
And as for my own mother, oh dear, my mom! Drawing from examples driven straight from my parents fruitful relationship, she’s teaches me nearly everyday that husband repelling is fun!
Overall though, I think we’re equally nutty and there’s something to be said about that. I’d tell you more, but I’d rather you just read the coherent interview on Tory Burch’s blog here. Among important quotes referenced: “water is for washing, always drink champagne.”And that’s just a small peek.
An early Happy Mother’s Day from our generations of Repellers to yours.

    this is the best photo i have ever seen of you, because it is so honest, sincere, true, and it is about love: the love for each other and fashion. you girls are glowing. i know where my fashion sense came from and my biggest critics were/are my mother and grandmother. this is a photo you should treasure and you cannot stop looking at it because it is such a true photo. i love the purple, the red and the boucle jacket. so you girls look amazing and you are glowing. your girls sitting on the sofa, well that is pure sophistication in a very fashionable way. i love the interior decoration. and it such a picture perfect with the 3 of you sitting there. i don't know everything fits so well together.
