So in commemoration of Mother’s Day yesterday, reader Quaneshia from Memphis, Tennesee wrote in with a bit of ‘Mother Real Style’
She says, “I’m a teacher who definitely believes in beauty on a budget and achieving “the look” for less. I wanted to send you some pics to see what you thought about my style…I call it classic elegance with hints of trendy and color…


“…My school style may consist of basic pieces with modern trenches to updated suiting to cute dresses paired with cardigans. Also, because teachers nowadays have a life, I can be casual for a day out (notice the coordinating grey on the Chucks :)) or classy on a night out with the girls…
Since it was Mother’s Day Weekend, she says, ” I thought it fitting for me to send a couple pics of my little man…”
“… Kamrin is 5 years old and has a style ranging from preppy to male urban chic.
Y’all…how cute is this?????
In sum, Quaneshia says, “Although we’re not not as eclectic as I’ve seen on The Fashion Bomb, do we have style???
I think they do!
What do you think?

  15. First of all, thanks soooo much for all of the great comments!!! Kamrin and I definitely appreciate all of the love from fellow Fashion Bombers.
    So, about the cream dress, it’s cream with black polka dots but you can’t see them in the picture. Anyways, it’s an Isaac Mizrahi creation from…drumroll please…Target!!! (Remember I live for style on a budget) I have a black one also, and it came in pink and a pretty blue. I don’t think they will have it in store, but you might want to check online. Thanks again everyone and to you Claire!!!

    Be Fabulous!!!
    ~Quaneshia (and Kamrin)
