Yesterday I took my four year-old daughter shopping for school supplies and clothes for when she starts preschool next week. She has an eye for style in her very young age. Choosing a brown top with polka dots on it she exclaimed "Oh, this will look lovely with my brown skirt!" She also chose a couple of new shirts and a melon pink sweatsuit with a studded crown.
Her backpack selection took no time at all as she immediately gravitated toward one that was pink with Disney princesses. I was relieved when she skipped over the My Little Pony (complete with a mane of hair sticking out of it) and the Barbie bride backpack (with a child sized veil included). When looking at a Hannah Montana bag she said "Ugh. Hannah Montana just doesn't work well for me." Good girl! I don't get the whole Miley Syrus thing and was a little shocked that she know who Hannah Montana was. All day long she has paraded around the house in her princess backpack and has been asking to look at all of her "school stuff" ... multiple times ... and keeps asking if it is fall yet.
I like this ensemble on Katie Holmes ... except for the pegged jeans! What is she thinking? I honestly didn't expect to see those again since they went out of style in 1989. The sweater, scarf and ballet flat combination is nice, but it would be so much better with a straight leg jean that actually fits her body.
I love this look on Gwyneth Paltrow. It is classic but with a modern flare. I would love a grey flannel sheath dress and a tailored black blazer. Very simple and sophisticated.
Cameron Diaz always makes her fashion endeavors look effortless. I like the simplicity of this look. For autumn I would maybe throw a cardigan over the tank top and wear a pair of camel leather boots.
There you have it. My fashion opinions for Fall 2008. In looking at the outfits I have commented on, I realize how much I love black and white in fun patterns. Hmmm, maybe that is what I should be looking for this season.
