We love the Times Magazine spread where style icons wear their moms' clothes. Irina in her mother's peasant blouse and Aerin Lauder in Estee Lauder's diamond bracelet elicit a particular "ooh" factor. Also, we never even knew Maya Rudolph's mother was a famous '70s singer until we saw the piece. The story reminded me of my own favorite piece of clothing, a sheepskin coat from the '70s that was made just for my mother, and in high school, I started wearing it. When I thought of it shoved in the back of my closet, it made me wonder - Have you ever gotten a great style piece from your mom or grandmother? Send photos!
