Influences on a woman’s style are varied, but one that is most common is that of family.  Our mothers’, sisters’ and grandmothers’ style, and the nature of our relationships with those women, can have a big impact on our personal style.  Nicki talks about a couple of style attributes she inherited from her family in her story below…

“I think we give and take aspects of our style from all of our experiences in life, and yes of course family.  These gloves were my grandmother’s, and I have been wearing them myself for many years now.  I love them.  The quality is amazing!  I am not sure if you can buy anything like them these days.  My lippy is also something I have been given by my family.  As in, my mother always wore lippy, even on the farm where we grew up.  She would wear lip-stick in the paddocks!  And so it’s something I learned from her.  Yes, the details of style are very important.  Like this dress, which has a very simple cut but which has this back detail that I really love.  And the brooch.  It adds something, a detail, and this makes it more interesting”.
