Designer Tory Burch's mother, Reva, was an optimist. Her takeaway, glass-is-half-full message to her daughter was, "No matter how bad today might be, turn the corner and it's a whole new day." This uplifting bit of wisdom undoubtedly formed a small piece of the bigger puzzle that her designing daughter pieced together to build a successful brand, and life as a mother in her own right.
In celebration of Mother's Day, Burch has gathered similar maternal memories and musings (accompanied by some great pictures) from tastemaker friends -- including T Magazine editor Sally Singer, designer Prabal Gurung, TV host Willie Geist, Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive and model and filmmaker Christy Turlington Burns, among others -- and posted them on her eponymous site, The Tory Blog. The result is amusing, inspiring and moving.
