Shopping my mom’s closet is a bit of a treasure hunt. The woman’s taste in fashion is as incalculable as mother nature’s temperament in April.
While we share some things (mostly mine when trendy things catch her fancy), I normally stay out of her closet because most of her possessions have sentimental value (gifts my dad would bring back from his business trips). This Nina Ricci purse which I salvaged from her donation pile was apparently something he bought her when they went to New Zealand together. It’s in excellent condition considering how casually she throws her things around so I tried to convince her I would appreciate it more than someone at the nearest Goodwill might. When that didn’t work I reminded her I was her daughter and that I should have first dibs on her things (when all else fails…).
