Well it's Fashion Friday, time to look back at the fashions the kiddos assembled this week. Most of the outfits were standard Ro and Ree—you know, bright, cheery, and, uh, "interesting." But then there was this day. Maybe I was just extra-uptight that day, but man, I really had to restrain myself from "fixing" anything, particularly with Ro's outfit. Trust me, they looked even worse in person, with the clashing pinks and reds, long-sleeved shirts and tanks (a look Miss Ree seems to gravitate toward), baggy tights that were three sizes too big and she stole out of the "when you're older" bin... Whatever... they were happy, and that's what counts, right? (clenching teeth) Anyhow, Ro is on the left and Ree is on the right, and we were on our way to soccer, where, by the way, Ree was the only one on the field wearing a skirt. A fact that did not bother her in the least. To mix things up a little, yesterday I asked the girls if they wanted to take their own fashion pics from now on, and they loved the idea. So I told them to figure out location/props/pose/whatever, then put the D300 on a tripod, plunked it where they directed, and handed over the remote. I think the shot they got was pretty dang cute. (I cropped it a little afterwards.) And these outfits seemed "normal" again, for some reason, but perhaps I'm just viewing them through chocolate-covered glasses—it's what I had for breakfast. Ree is on the left, wearing lilac shorts over purple flowered pants, a fuzzy striped sweater, and her purple kittycat Polliwalk shoes. Oh, and she has her twins Emily and Rachel in the stroller. (Apparently she's the only one who can tell them apart. Heh.) Ro, holding the remote trigger, is on the right, and is wearing her faux reading glasses, a turquoise velour hoodie, red shorts, turquoise leggings, and her blue dinosaur Polliwalk shoes. She also has twins in her stroller, named Raspberry Fruit Jar and Rose Fruit Mix. (?) Ree (left, holding the remote) was in charge of today's picture. She wanted bikes and she knew just how she wanted to sit/balance. When Ree put her outfit together today she looked up at me and gushed "Mama, I look beautiful!!!" Always, baby. Always. Ro, on the right, was apparently going for an "I dare you to try and ignore me" look. She's wearing her hoodie as head ornament, flung a tutu skirt around her neck, and then has wildly combined many boldly colored items that actually seem to have some complementary colors. That's certainly a look, sweetie. Cheers, and happy Friday!
