As little girls, we used to steal from our mom's closets all the time -- and now it's time to return the favor. Stylist and author Sherrie Mathieson knows exactly what we're talking about. She's the smart cookie behind the new book "Steal This Style," which shows moms how to borrow trends and styles from their daughters -- without looking over-the-top or out of her element.

Check out an excerpt from the book below, and then send us some of your favorite mom fashion moments!

Mismatched Celebrity Moms and Daughters*

    Alexis & Martha Stewart: On her TV show Whatever, Martha, wild child Alexis pokes fun of old episodes of her mother's show. Wonder how uptight homemaker extraordinaire Martha is really taking that.

    Courtney Love & Frances Bean Cobain: Frances has talked in interviews about being into a different music scene than both her parents', and says she's more girlie than her grunged-out mom. Plus, as far as we know, no teen drug issues.

    Jaid & Drew Barrymore: Drew's mom supposedly couldn't hack it in Hollywood, letting Drew use drugs and alcohol from a young age. We find it hard to believe that Drew, with her uber sunny personality, would let the same happen to her own daughter.

    Cher & Chastity Bono: Cher is over-the-top with her fashion, her larger than life personality and her huge stage persona. In contrast, her lesbian daughter with famous ex Sonny Bono is a low-key writer and LGBT activist.

    Jayne Mansfield & Mariska Hargitay: The Playboy pinup was a blonde bombshell who starred in fluffy melodramas before her untimely death. Her daughter is also an actress, but has found career longevity playing SVU cop Olivia Benson. And she did it wearing pants.

    Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltow: They're both actresses, classy and blonde. But Gwen married a rock star, making us think she's a little more boho than her straightlaced mom.

    Connie & Leighton Meester: US Weekly recently broke news that the always put together Meester was born to her mother in jail. Because she was smuggling pot into the U.S. Normal, yes?

    Janet Leigh & Jamie Lee Curtis: Janet started out poor while Jamie was born into the fame her mother earned. "She was green as you can be. I'm about as black as you can be. I'm jaded and time tested and all the things that my mother wasn't," Jamie Lee has said.
