I Got It From My Mama





The photo, above, on the top left is my mom! She doesn't know the exact date it was taken, but it was some time around 1970 when she was in her early 20s. Doesn't she look pretty? Plus, I just love that the photo is sooo late '60s/early '70s/Mad Men-esque, but also kind of timeless. 

Earlier this week, I got to take part in a photo shoot to recreate it! They had pros on hand to do my makeup (LOTS of blue eyeshadow) and hair (I was cursing my mom for doing those weird side curls back in the day), and they even had a stylist find me a similar, more modernized version of the dress. (It was this one by Trina Turk.) Such a fun day!

This was all on behalf of Galderma's Mom Genes campaign, and the new survey they've just released about mothers, daughters, and facial aging. Inspired? To kick off the campaign, they want your mother/daughter photos, too. For every picture uploaded to this site, Galderma will donate $5 to the National Charity League Inc, a non-profit that fosters mother-daughter relationships through volunteering.

Thanks to Galderma for having me on this fun shoot! What do you guys think of the photo?







Disclosure: I participated in this shoot as a guest of Galderma, but I was under no obligation to cover the results or the campaign. This is not a sponsored post.

These pictures touched my heart. To see the generations stand side by side and see the similarities. Such a wonderful tribute, and a beautiful keepsake in both memory and photograph. Loved this so much.

How clearly I rememberthose days! The look was somewhere between generations, where we strived to simultaneously appear hip/cool AND timeless. Possibly the books/art of our youth were influences? Kahlil Gibran and Gustav Klimt come to mind. as each were often group discussed as "brilliant". Those darn side curls were considered hot, yet romantically a vision of beauty. Thank you for this memory!
