Before heading out on their trip, Daughter had suggested to Mom to check out a new style that she thought she would love. She showed her beautiful pictures of Pin Up and Rockabilly styles that hugged and flattered every curve. These women, in all shapes and sizes, exuded their own unique beauty. Mom felt a desire to look so pretty but, she wasn’t convinced she could pull it off. After all, she had been clad in leggings and hoodies for several years now. She was all about comfort and simplicity. Oh, but the hair, the clothes, the make-up! Glamour and comfort couldn’t go hand in hand, could they?
Daughter had stirred something in Mom and she began searching for places to try on such styles along their journey. Before they crossed the Alberta/BC border Daughter and Mom had filled the car with bags and bags of pin up and retro inspired goodies. The answer had been discovered. Glamour could be comfortable and fun! Not only that, Mom also learned she could express both her sometimes sweet and sometimes sassy side. Why limit such a complex personality to one expression of style?
