From the time they were able, my girls have dressed themselves. They were the ones bounding into lower school with disheveled curls and confidence wearing bold combinations of pattern, color, length and layer. Unknowing Vivienne Westwood's if you will. Sophie once made a "coat" out of unbreathable pink craft felt with a matching sash that she wore out and about on a sweltering summer day. Sadie's second grade trademark was mismatched knee socks pulled high over her knees every day the entire school year. They are committed to their uniqueness.
That said, their current love of vintage clothing doesn't surprise me a bit. Here are a couple of recent finds from their local favorite, Parkerhawn Vintage. Sophie went straight for the silver studded 70's denim jacket and Sadie fell in love with the navy and white spectator flats.
If your kids sound like mine, have them pay a visit to Sophie's fashion blog, Tres Tres Chic, for inspiration.
