Growing up, I lacked any sort of fashion sense and always erred on the side of conservative. Arts and crafts were my preferred form of creative self-expression. And so it is for my daughter. She has always exhibited a high level of creativity from a very young age which she expresses through piano, dance, drama, art, and personal style. There are times when her sense of style is a little too bold and colourful for my taste. But that's okay. Because it's a reflection of her personality - bold, bright and unique.
Whenever her friends are over, it is almost inevitable that they will raid her closet and put together a series of outfits to model during an impromptu fashion show. They love rolling out the yoga mats for their runway, turning on some music and posing for the paparazzi. It is so adorable, I don't even mind it when my daughter puts on my heels to complement her outfit. Hmm, at least I have good taste in shoes!
