"Mother's Day is not complete without my other mother figures.
Pat, who influenced me so much. It probably was because of her I came to
live in Paris. In her last years I went back to SF to see her every
year. Every time I asked her what she would like me to bring, she would
"bring me Paris tied in a bow."
Voilà Pat in her most Parisian, in a 1947 Dior." -Nancy Li
