While wait­ing for my mother, who was hav­ing a man­i­cure, I read Noreen Flana­gan’s edi­tor’s note, “Fash­ion Mem­o­ries” [March 2014]. I was touched by the fash­ion mo­ments she had shared with her mother and by her mother’s de­ter­mi­na­tion, de­spite her ill­ness, to travel to Toronto to spend time with her daugh­ter. Three years ago, we lost my fa­ther. My mother, de­spite her sad­ness, has main­tained her in­ter­est in fash­ion and look­ing her best. Like Noreen, I also be­lieve that fash­ion has the power to in­flu­ence our mood and state of mind. By striv­ing to “look as fab­u­lous as ever,” as ex­pressed by Angie Mor­ris [“Fash­ion Fix,” ELLE Pro­file], we are com­forted and em­pow­ered in con­fronting the ob­sta­cles pre­sented to us.
