Here are 5 gifts from Providence-based, women-owned businesses that will make her feel like a million bucks for Mother's Day (or any other day). 

1.  I saw this amazing blush silk and ostrich feather robe at Archetype Vintage and I thought I had to have it.  Until I imagined an 18-month-old's hands mushing yogurt into the fabulous ostrich feathers.  So, Mama, if you have made it past the toddler mushing food on your clothes stage, you have EARNED this.  vintage 20s silk feather kimono robe / 1920s pink silk ostrich feather robe / rare flapper robe / boudoir robe / silk feather duster jacket

2. I asked Master perfumer Charna Ethier, of the Providence Perfume Company, what is her favorite fragance, knowing full well that is akin to asking a mom which is her favorite child.  But she didn't hesitate: it's "Divine."  Inspired by old Hollywood glamour, this 100% natural fragrance (no synthetics, petrochemicals, fragrance oils, dyes, parabens, pthathlates or chemical fragrances) is a "A beautiful melange of Moroccan orange blossom, red mandarin, queen neroli, lush vanilla, natural musk ambrette and vintage oakmoss."

3.  Luna & Stella's star birthstone necklace has been worn by new Hollywood, Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri Cruise.  Each wearing the other's birthstone, they were the first to get me thinking about a modern interpretation of mother-daughter dressing and inspired our new Mama and Me collection

4.  If emulating Old Hollywood isn't enough, she can become it, with a Hollywood session at Providence Pinup. The incredible LuLu Locks pulls together a dream team with make-up artist Brandon Ward and photographer Cat Laine.Chifferobe's Kristen Minsky, pictured below, channels Old Hollywood on a daily basis, and now you can too.
