I don't know who your fashion inspirations may be, but my Mums is most definitely one of mine. She has always had an awesome fashion philosphy of being able to dress great for less, wear what fits, and always wake up and look your best. I remember her always cleaning the house wearing heels, I have rarely ever seen her in sweats past mid morning, and she always has been great at accessorizing.
She has a way of keeping up with trends and making it her own. I feel like her and I have very different personal styles, but I have always tried to live by the standards she has set before me... I still feel like she dresses better than me on a daily basis.
I leave for Dublin and Paris next week. I gotta start planning some awesome outfits! Limited on luggage for Dublin, which kind of sucks, but we are driving to Paris so I am free to bring as many shoes as I please. The other limitation... gotta be comfortable because there will be LOTS of walking!
