A couple of days ago my Mom and I were talking about fashion and about the clothes she was wearing when I was a child. I remember how much I admired her (I still do) and how I loved watching her when she got dressed up. And we also talked about a blue silk dress with a red leather belt, which I liked so much on her when I was little. To my surprise today she sent me this lovely picture, taken by my Dad, that shows her in this dress and me in funny blue bloomers in the early 1980s during a holiday on the island of Elba. It really made me smile.
