Who’s that girl!!

April 27, 2016

There’s nothing as refreshing as having a daughter who shares the same fashion sense as mommy. Ever since she turned three, Xena has been particular about her choice of outfits. She gets very excited at the prospect of wearing a dress and anything pink, or purple. “Blue is for boys.” She reminds me every so often. I think I have Kinder Joy to blame for that!

She has an eye for detail like lace and calligraphy on tops and dresses, and loves accessories especially handbags and shades. When I travelled to Cape Town, every night we talked on the phone and she would not forget to remind me “Mama please buy for me a big hand bag.” Keyword here being big! However, it has not been all fairytale from the onset.

When she first figured out that she had the right to decide or at least pick part of her outfit ensemble, it was a trying moment for me. She had the worst fashion sense ever and we would call her mtu mshamba to mean a shady person. Her obsession was centred around this pink pair of hello kitty gumboots and she would want to pair them with dresses and even hot pants! I still cringe when i remember how dreadful some of the looks were. Given that it was a good demonstration of independence, sometimes I would be forced to indulge her desires and pray hard that we did not bump into anyone who knew us! Thank God those days are behind us!

Believe it or not, she paired today’s outfit all by herself. All i did was spread the shirt dress on her bed and in no time, she had placed the ballerina shoes, belt, handbag and shades alongside the shirt dress. She then stepped back, as if to get a clear perspective on how well they all blended! I must say I am really proud of the fashionista she has turned out to be!

Beautiful. We are still stuck on our favourite Lion shirt and mickey dress. Getting my toddler to put on anything else requires a sales speech. Hopefully she can start picking up something as cool as what Xena picked out.

Aaaaaaaw! Cute little munchkin.
She is so diva like already & ready to take on the world. Bet she will be a fashion designer and personal stylist.
Joy, the days of her raiding your closet are nearing, plus the shoe addiction running in her genes just bursts out. 🙂

PS miss you and hope we get Mommy Musings Monday back #publicdemand
