The budding fashionista


My children were watching a cartoon movie. It was one that they’d seen before. As such, I was rather confused when my four-year-old daughter quickly covered her eyes during one part. Usually once they’ve seen a movie for the first time, the scary parts aren’t so scary on subsequent viewings. But when I checked the screen, I saw that it wasn’t at all a scary scene.

“What’s the matter?” I asked my daughter.

“I just can’t watch this part,” she said.

“Why not?”

I could hardly believe her answer. “It’s his clothes,” she said. “They don’t MATCH!” she practically cried.

Good grief. I’m in for some rough teenage years with this one!

  1. Oh God, mismatched clothes.
    I let my son dress himself (since he’s a big boy) to go to school. He’s got J style. Brown and black? Totally matches. As well as brown and blue, and anything with a pattern, and anything else with another, completely opposite pattern. I feel that the girls that he likes at school can do my job for me. 🙂


  2. Wow, I would be looking to your daughter for advice if I were in your position! Even when I was younger, I didn’t really “get” fashion, and if my clothes were “right,” that was sheer luck on my part. 🙂
