Stylin Mums - Which Style is Your Mum ?

With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's only fitting that we pay a fashion tribute to the special woman in our lives, who no doubt had a big influence on our style. She dressed us up in matching sets way before they were cool & was the person who's wardrobe we raided... well at a very young age.

Remember trying on your mum's favourite heels and cat walking down the hallway pretending to be a supermodel? Well not much has changed as mum's wardrobe is still fun & inspirational (& a great place to find that perfect vintage item). So in honour of our fave ladies, we've put together a little celebrity mum-o-meter to figure out your mum's style.... from the princess mum to the fashion mum, we have it covered.
