My Style Icons

  Each woman has her own "style". Whether we like it or not, the way we dress and carry ourselves shows the world part of who we are and how we see ourselves. We pick up our own style from our mother's and grandmother's, our best friends, our co-workers, something we saw in a magazine or on a walk, where we live. Each of these little pieces adds up and creates our "style".

Growing up I was pretty much a "jock" so I sported lots of t-shirts and adidas basketball shorts (I did wear dresses for "special" events like Mother's Day and Easter :) I've grown so has my sense of style (and I LOVE dresses!). Here are a few of my style icons I've collected over the years and what each of them brings to the table - no matter what season or trend is in:
