My mom was a natural at putting together timeless, stylish outfits her entire life, up until she passed away in 2004 from Pancreatic Cancer at the age of 62. She taught me how to have that effortless style and that the bag (and fragrance) made the outfit, as you can see by the fabulous bag she is carrying. Her name was Rosalie (Mondani) Flaherty. She was from Connecticut and went to college in NYC. She moved to Boston, MA when she married my dad, and though she was a public school teacher in Milton, MA for many years, she took great pride in looking perfectly stylish everyday from head to toe. The memory of her amazing outfits and style makes me smile every day. Just look at those sunglasses! Also, worth noting, even though they would be cropped out if chosen, are my dad's shoes!"
