Fashionista Friday - Wedding Attire for Seven-Year Olds

The Twofer went to their first wedding ever last week.

The wedding itself was small and intimate. It was a Thursday evening with just close friends and family of the bride and groom. Our girls and their cousins from my husband's side, were the only kids in attendance.

But, for the Twofer....this was a VERY BIG TO-DO!

For months now they have been talking about what they will wear. I convinced they they did not have to rush out and buy a new dress (that they might not ever have the occasion to wear again) for this special as it is. Mommy isn't going to buy a new dress afterall.

I sorted through their closet and came up with black skirts we had purchased for a very fancy Breakfast with Santa at a friend's "club". We aren't "club" folk but I've been to enough to know a standard wool skirt and tights wasn't going to cut it for that crew. Black you say? For a Spring wedding?

Why yes!

We brightened it up with a pink tank top and a cream colored shrug sweater and bright colored headbands...and they were good to go.  Infact, here's a photo of all the kids and the lovely bride, Lori.

The best part...remember those shoes from last week?

They got to wear them!

Fashionista Friday - headbands

The other day I took The Twofer to Eastern Market in Washington, DC and we came across this fabulous selection of stretchy headbands. 

What made them so unique were the fabrics. Some were preppy with dots, whales, or stripes. Others had a Pucci-style groove going on. They were all really cute and comfortable.


Animal prints are perfect for a little accent piece like a headband.

The vendor we purchased them from doesn't have a website. So let me know if you see something similar and where you see it!



Fashionista Friday - Spring jackets and what's with those headbands?

I have a nice collection of jackets that are perfect in the Fall for when a sweater is too heavy, and in the Spring when the wind can add a chill to a sunny day.

Em threw on a cute white jacket this morning and it got me thinking of how great a light weight jacket is. It can be work under a heavier coat or rain coat, but it adds depth and layering to any outfit. Here Em wears it with pink yoga pants and one of those headbands (more on that below).

And here are a few others I've found that I think would be great additions to any young girls outfit. Toss them over a t-shirt or tank top in the summer air conditioning. Throw it into their back pack on a windy day for added warmth. Or dress-down a sundress.

But someone tell me...what is with those headbands?

You know...the ones with the long ribbons at the end.

Are you supposed to tie it up in the back? Under your chin?

Are the ribbons supposed to make girls with short hair feel like they have long hair?

Why not just use a genuine SCARF which is what started the look in the first place?


Fashionista Friday - a Fashion Show for a Great Cause

This Saturday is the 5th Annual Childhelp Fashion Show and Luncheon in Tyson's Corner, Virginia.

I was invited to attend but will be out of town this weekend so I'm counting on one of you to go, take photos, and tell me all about this event that will raise money for victims of child abuse and neglect.
