In My Mother's Day

Just look at you, Momma, all Holly Golightly in your neo-classical Halston dress, Vidal S. cut, and slender arms. Dad's looking a little overstyled to suit me, but then your husband was never your ultimate accessory. Still, you made a rather handsome couple, and you certainly left Wichita behind, which was always your aim.

Even if being from the midwest was truly such an onus, you did have a rather sharp-dressed and pretty mother. At least she was back when this photo was taken, back when they called you 'Cissy.' She's not so delicate, but she always reminds me a bit of Vivien Leigh. Just sturdier.

I love you, Mom, and for a lot better things than your good fashion sense.
