E’s Fall Fashion Tips

5 10 2009

I’m a big fan of giving kids choices and letting them learn from poor choices while they are young and the consequences for said choices are relatively small.

I always make sure that the choices I offer are something I’m OK with, for example, clothing. I’d never give them the choice of a garment I don’t approve of. And the younger they are, the less choices they get; E gets choices of two outfits, Z gets choices from his entire wardrobe.

All this to say: even though E is barely two she has her very own interesting “personal style”, as Tim Gunn would say. So I imagine that if she had her own fashion blog, it would look something like this:

Wardrobe

Wearing jammies outside the house is usually a no-no, but pair it with a tutu and some colorful boots and you’re ready for any grocery store “runway”.

pajamas
A nice pair of silky jammies are great for lounging around the house.

collar
Make each garment your own! Is the back of the collar more exciting than the front? Turn the shirt around and refuse to let your mother button you up the correct way, she obviously has no idea about fashion.

costume

Why wait till Halloween to wear your costumes? Any day is dress up day!

color

Don’t be afraid of color. I had fun putting this outfit together. Mommy didn’t think I needed the shrug too but little did she know it made the outfit!

coat

A good coat is also critical, even if you live in California like I do. Grandpa picked this one out for me so it’s a little big, but it’s kinda like a coat dress so I wear it anyways.

And just in case you think I am immune to fashion no-no’s, if your diaper is showing, your dress is too short!

Hair

Hair this fall is long, flowing and curly. Unless your mother insists on putting it in pigtails.

Accessories
boots

Boots are a must have for any fall wardrobe. Make sure you have one sensible pair and one crazy colored pair for more fun looks.

cshors

A girl can never have too many shoes. My poor unfashionable mother only has 2 pairs! Too bad she doesn’t get hand-me-downs like I do!

cshoes

Really, you can never have enough shoes.

kclose

I’ve had these earrings since I was 3 months old, some classics never go out of style.

lightsaber

Don’t forget, a lightsaber makes any outfit complete.

shrug

That’s all from E, I hope you enjoyed my fall fashion tips.

Too cute! She is absolutely adorable and really quite fashionable. I expect to see her on Project Runway in about 20 years!
