Ok, I love fashion. Really I do. But just like you normal(-ish?) folks out there, I too have certain things where I’m like, ‘What the heck, who would wear that? Is it even physically possible?’Or sometimes it just looks funny. Not because it’s particularly ugly, but it’s just laugh-worthy. Or perhaps just ew. Man Repeller(ok, I don’t actually follow that blog, but I do like the man repeller concept)But yeah, here are two things that made me lol (the first one’s aimed at you, moonboy :P)
Did anyone else just see the short segment on Sunrise less than half an hour ago about Charlotte Smith’s vintage haute couture collection? Dior, Chanel Lucile, Vionnet, Balenciaga, Pucci, Jean Muir, Zandra Rhodes, Westwood, Versace, Dolce & Gabana, Jil Sander and a more recent (but sadly also late) designer, Alexander McQueen….

You’ve got to admit. Designer Children’s fashion is pretty darn cute. Ridiculously unnecessary (I mean, dressing up your kid in Adidas or Ralph Lauren or Lanvin is just BEGGING to get your kid kidnapped) but cute.Is there anything concerning about it though? Do these kids get to choose to do this, or are they being pressured into the limelight? I know my sister dislikes putting photos of kids on facebook, since they don’t really get to control how much is on the internet, but that’s a slightly different matter. This high up in designer fashion, it seems pretty nicely done; nothing to gaudy, very subtle make up, maybe it’s just our favourite designers just want to dress our kids nicely? I mean, I’m not really well-read enough on the matter to really know (Education. Is. Everything. Period) From here though, it seems ok. Beauty pageants, another matter entirely, but I digress. Anyway, these are freaking adorable.
