Fashion Friday (the evolution of an outfit)

It's Fashion Friday, time to see the fancy and fanciful outfits that the kiddos put together this week. For the first outfit, Miss Ree was somewhat obsessed with multiple colors (as you'll hear several times on this video), and Miss Ro once again grabbed her favorite pink ruffly polka dot skirt (and then tried to claim that her head-to-toe-pink ensemble was also multicolored. Ahem.). Doesn't Ro's cool nonchalance—the little shrug with "Dass just a neckliss"—kill you?! This second one I like to call "The Evolution of an Outfit." These three pictures took place over about 5 minutes, and are pretty typical of how the girls steadily modify their outfits as the day goes on. The changes continue all day long, and by the end of the day it's pretty rare for them to have on anything at all that they were wearing at the beginning of the day. (Do I even need to mention how pissy I get about the insane amount of laundry these two mites generate?) DSC_7607LRsDSC_7639LRsDSC_7668 All of Ro and Ree's past Fashion Friday outfits can be seen here. Now it's your turn! Share the grins and give us a link to an outfit that your kiddo put together! Fashion Friday is now a regular weekly feature, so grab your camera, turn those kids loose in the closet at least once a week, and show us what happened. 1. Wanda (At Last....) 2.

  1. they are too cute for words. <333

  2. Heh! Oh, Das just a necklace! Your girlies are so very, very cute!! This is still such fun for us to watch but not for mamma and wela when it comes to laundry! Ugh!!

    Cute, cute!

  3. Hi! I just started reading your blog and I love it. Your girls are beautiful! And I love the idea of "Fashion Friday" - I can't wait until my little one is old enough to join in!


  4. I say hang it up and wear it again. To heck with laundering things that have been worn for just a few hours (unless of course they are stained, sticky, or stinky).

  5. I love their outfits, especially the Ro's pink ruffle skirt and Ree's pink and yellow bows. :)

    Not participating this Friday...as we didn't really get to pick outfits. :(

    (Do drop by my blog for an award -- for all your posts that have made me smile.)

  6. Better and better every week! Good grief, they are cuties alright!
    Laundry...oh yes, it is my nemesis as well.
    Have a nice weekend.

    The laundry in my daughter's room always drives me crazy. I never know what's dirty and what's clean. They look adorable, as usual.

  8. Love the outfits! I ran across some photos of my twins when they were little in some "choice" outfits. I'll have to put them into one of my Flashback Friday posts one of these days and then I'll have you check it out. My favorite is how my one daughter always loved wearing fun hats.

  9. Sooo cute! I love the video and them describing their outfits :-)

  10. I'm lovin the fashion show videos - really gives us a clearer picture of their adorable personalities. So cute, the 2 color choice of Ree's hair bows. Again, love the ruffled skirt Ro chose. (Dahlia would love it - I must show her when she gets home from school.)

    But it's their adorable way of showing what they're wearing that gives me a big grin all day!

    And about that laundry. It's the folding I can't stand. I'd rather scrub toilets.......almost!

    Have a great week-end!


  11. ONce again, my favorite day of the week!

  12. dat just a necklace. BwwwaaaHaHaHaHa! Love it.

  13. Pamster I am totally with you on not washing something unless it's visibly dirty. Unfortunately not much that the girls wear stays clean... those two are just hell on clothes. ;-)

  14. Ladies,

    If I say it once, I say it 100x times per week, "No more laundry! You are not changing clothes one more time today!" I look down and my filthy clothes after finishing dinner dishes and wonder if maybe I could have used a few fashion changes myself!

    Happy Weekend!

  15. Lori, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who says that!!! I swear these girls could go through the entire closet in one day if I'd let them. The other thing I say over and over and over is "Only one cup a day! Please reuse your cup!" because they like to get a new cup every single dang time they take a drink, and if I let them we'd end up running an entire dishwasher load of cups twice a day. Crazy isn't it?! The things I never thought I'd hear myself say...

    Longtime lurker, since before referral day, but first-time commenter...Might a new rule be something like this? They can only choose new outfit pieces until the closet doors close. Once the doors are closed (by the laundry police), they are done adding flair, maybe an hour or two after dressing the first time?

    They look downright adorable as usual, and those little voices...seriously cute. They're not babies anymore. ::sniff::

  17. Love it! Too cute!

    Posted my link too. My sister always looks forward to FCF!

  18. I feel your pain on the laundry! I had to limit Maddy to two wardrobe changes (not counting PJ's) per day.

    But what do you do if only one of your Princesses wants to make a fashion statement while her sister just wants to layer on the accessories and role-play? Does that count as "fashion" too? I hope so because that's what I'm sharing this week on my blog!

    Multi-colored. What a vocabulary! You are such an incredible mom giving them so much rich descriptive language to use.

  20. As cute as always!!! The video totally made me smile. When I check your posts my husband always says "What are you smiling about?" My standard answer - Salsa Girls!!!!

  21. Always love the girls' fashion choices. Know what you mean about the laundry. It's hard to keep up with the 6 of us. When my older daughter started the layering thing I about came unglued and threatened to make her do all her own laundry. Glad Maimie doesn't do too much layering yet.
    PS Everytime I grab the laptop Maimie wants to "watch movies of Ro and Ree with mommy". So cute!
