“Moms, it’s time to start dressing like your daughters. We’re not suggesting you squeeze into low-rise skinny jeans or miniskirts, but your daughter’s youthful style could do a lot to liven up a stale wardrobe.”
The advice works in reverse too. As a matter of fact, it is only with slight reluctance that we admit we are wearing our mom’s pants today. A nice dark brown wool number, slightly bootlegged, c. 1970. You can probably buy a pair just like them in any department store today.
The Daily News had Sherrie Mathieson, author of Steal This Style: Moms and Daughters Swap Wardrobe Secrets, make over some 20 mother-daughter pairs using the more “youthful” fashions of the younger set on mom. The before and after results, (including the makeover of the mom pictured on right) can be seen here.
For our mother and daughter readers who have had spirited conversations about each other’s wardrobes, Sherrie Mathieson will be at 92YTribeca on Jun 1 to share valuable advice about the benefits of cross-generation dressing.
Robbi K has great stage presence, and she was great with the kids in the audience. At one point she got down in the middle of the kiddie dance floor and had the kids dancing and singing. It took shy Olive a while to get warmed up, but she was grooving by the end. Robbi K even brought some rooster puppetry into the act. Can’t go wrong with that.
It was a lovely morning, and Robbi K is a nice change of pace from the usually rock and pop inspired kids music. Also, 92YTribeca has a terrific space to see a show like this. The vibe is casual, there’s room to dance, it sounds great, and there’s a cafe on the scene to grab a cup of coffee. I’m pretty sure I even saw one parent with a mimosa. (I was tempted to hunt down a martini but then realized, despite the fact that I was in a club seeing live music, it was 11:00 in the morning and I was surrounded by preschoolers.) This concert was part of 92YTribeca’s B.Y.O.K. (Bring Your Own Kid) series of ongoing family concerts. Check it out.
