Minidress + hardhat= yeah, baby!
This picture makes it impossible not to reference Austin Powers. I don't care if quoting Mike Myers' movie characters is dated and unfunny. Jennifer Janesko's mom Rita makes me think the 1960's world of beautiful women in mind-bending colors, patterns and hemlines, wasn't just the stuff of '90s movie parody. We're not worthy.

"The photo was taken sometime between 1968 and 1970 in my parents first home in Kansas City. It's my favorite because it combines my mom's love of fashion with her sense of humor. I wish she still had this dress, I would borrow it! I spent a lot of my youth at the mall and I will just go ahead and blame her for my love of shopping. Today, I am starting my own fashion line. We still shop together, except now, I don't have to page her when I get lost."
