Style Challenge: That One Special Piece
What is the one special piece in your wardrobe that means something extra special to you? For me, it's this simple, humble, little red plastic bracelet. My mother wore it every single day when I was a little girl. I remember her wearing it in Pakistan, and then for years in Saudi Arabia. She wore it to dinner parties and to her job as a teacher. She wore it with her Pakistani Shalwaar Kameezes and with blouses and dress pants. The one consistent piece on my mom was always her red plastic bracelet. When I noticed she stopped wearing it recently, I asked if I could have it. I didn't want it to be given away, or lost somewhere. I adore my mom (who doesn't adore their mom? In fact who doesn't adore MY mom?) and any little piece of her style I can carry with me makes me feel better.
There are actually two pieces from my mom in this post.
These shoes are hers, she bought them in 80's in Amsterdam when we were living there. And lovely Asian embroidered tunic.
I wanted to share a couple more pictures where I've worn my favourite red plastic bracelet.
