Deeply moved by Dolce and Gabbana's show at Milan Fashion Week, we chose a #MondayMuse who inspires us every day of every week: our mothers. The Italian fashion house dedicated their entire F/W 2015 collection to their moms and moms everywhere by designing dresses inspired by the doodles of their nieces and nephews as well as by sending to-be-mommas and model moms with their children down the runway. In addition to the collection being feminine and elegant, it reminded us that we owe the women who raised us the utmost gratitude.
We also thought of J.K. Simmons's kind acceptance speech at the Oscars during which he urged us all to tell our parents how much we appreciate them. "Call your mom... Tell them you love them, and thank them, and listen to them for as long as they want to talk to you."
This Monday afternoon, before the work week gets the better of you, take a moment to tell your mom, your dad, or someone else who had to put up with you during your 'formative' years that they are your eternal #MondayMuse.
