Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Piper Weiss's Shine Staff Blog has achieved word of mouth popularity with its hip, cute stories on everything from fashion to child rearing to dating disasters. My Mom Style Icon presents a quintessence of its appeal, gathering hundreds of vintage color photographs of moms displaying styles of the times. With its rich mix of pixie cuts, flips, pompadours, oversized hats, skimpy bikinis, skirts, shorts, jumpsuits, and indescribables, My Mom Style Icon brings back fashion eras too good to be left in closet boxes. Editor's recommendation.

Stephen Lowman
Piper Weiss's My Mom, Style Icon will remind you—shocker!—that your mother had a life before you came along. In fact, she may have even been fashionable…All the flamboyant mid-century fashion is there for the mocking—the ruffled blouses and bell-bottoms, the up-dos and bobs, the evening wear made out of burgundy velour…
—The Washington Post
