These Treacy Lowe gowns are probably some of my favorite items form my mom, they are so beautiful, and are in great shape, but my favorite part is that they are really so bohemian, not in a patchouli scented, Grateful Dead kinda way, but more in a Talitha Getty on a Morrocan rooftop kind of way. Please don't get me wrong, I loved my patchuolli scented Grateful Dead days, but I also love these beautiful gowns, they are truly works of art, and I am honored to be able to wear them.  There is a big difference between wearing something because it is the latest trend and you want to look cool, and knowing what is eternally cool. My mom had the latter.  She had a confidence to wear something that may not have been on trend, but that she knew was special, or well made, or important.  Being married to a fashion executive for a well respected fashion retailer, she always saw the best newcomers, and I really believed that she understood what made them special.  I had a pair of diapers made for me by Oscar de la renta made for me when I was a baby, my god I wish I had those now, bit that's ok, I have clothing than I know what to do with.  Here's to hoping I inherit my mother's eye.
