Fashion Friday

It's Fashion Friday, time to see what the four-year olds think is the height of fashion. We've got three outfits to show from this week, and I'm just gonna come right out with it and say that I cheated and put some of my picks in there too. This first set of outfits was completely assembled by the girls. Ree is on the left, and Ro is on the right. I thought it was interesting that they chose the same pair of velour pants, just in different colors, and it was hilarious when they decided that they needed some "props" for the picture. Ree chose Car Doggy (so named because he used to live exclusively in the car) and Ro chose a pink bucket filled with an old baby bottle of theirs and a purple oven mitt on her left hand. Hee! DSC_6374LR This second set of outfits was my doing. I did a little retail therapy when TubaDad was gone so much on business trips the last two weeks, and this is one of the finds. The dotted outfits were on sale at Crazy8, and made me grin. (The chocolate brown boots and tights we already had in the closet, and actually I wanted plain tights for Ree, who is on the right, but they were all in the laundry -- we go through a LOT of tights around here.) DSC_6190LRps-2LR This third set of outfits was a combo effort. I was trying to hurry things along a little this morning, so I grabbed the shirts and tights, then the girls ran with it from there. Ree (on the right) immediately picked the ruffly pink skirt that she never gets to wear because her sister always has it on, and chose low shoes instead of boots so we could see her tights. Ro was pleased-as-punch to get a soft velour pink skirt and then wanted shoes to match her sister. And she tucked everything in, like she always does. DSC_6409LR Fun stuff. Always interesting to see what they do. Hope everyone has a great weekend. PS: TubaDad finally did call about the multi-car-accident day. And he didn't even sound surprised!! (You have to wonder if he expects even worse out of the three of us when he leaves for work...) I really snickered when the girls called Wela and Ree yelled into the phone "Wuyuh, Wozee cwashed into da house and it bwaked!"

  1. I love all 3 but my Favourite is the last with the Initial shirts, cause it reminds me of a shirt I had when I has a kidlet:) Where did you get those?

  2. Love the last shirts, and the tucking makes me smile (and tee-hee a little). I have to ask, can your girls get their tights up and down by themselves when they go potty? My daughter has a really hard time. (When I say "hard time" I mean it's impossible for her:) I was just wondering if there's a secret or if it just takes time.

  3. Thanks, guys! The initial shirts were a gift from our sister-in-law. I checked the label inside and they're called "euro girls". I think the creator used to sell on ebay, but I don't see her there anymore.

    I have seen a whole bunch of really cute ones on Etsy, like at these 3 shops:

  4. Oh, and metaphase: They can do the tights by themselves now, but definitely have an easier time if I get a little bit bigger size than I normally would.

  5. The outfits are all adorable, but my favorite is the "model poses" in the second picture. Somebody put those two in a magazine!
