It's FASHION yo!

So I'm out and about today, doing normal things like standing in the dairy isle of the supermarket trying to decide between full fat and no fat yoghurt, while on my mobile phone when I feel a sense of movement behind me.
I look down to find a little girl who has done a full lap around me, and is now standing in front of me, peering up at me like this:


In the most divine manner, her look said it all: 'WHAT.THE.HELL.ARE.YOU.WEARING?!'

In particular she gave close inspection to my hair, I was amazed she didn't try to touch it to see if it was real. I didn't mean to laugh at her, but I was instantly brought into a fit of laughter at how ridiculous and foreign I must have looked in her 6 year old mind.
Then she walked off snatching looks over her shoulder as if to say, 'I'm watching you!'
Anyhow, I had this on, minus the heels, plus a pair of ballet flats.


Made my day!

Top: H&M
Skirt: It was a gift!
Ribbed tights: Platinum
Heels: Ebay
Jewellery: Mouche
Beauty note: I have 'Cutie Pink' nail polish from Revlon on, and 'Trolley Dolley' lip gloss from Chi Chi.

You look so pretty - I have a feeling she suspected you of being some form of princess. I have been mistaken for a princess and a fairy by small children when wearing shiny or frilly things, or lots of costume jewellery - and I am nowhere near as princess or fairy-like as you!

Wonderful Hair, tights. Everything. You are perfect.

You know my thoughts on children 'they should be seen working in one of my factories and not heard'! I would have high kicked her and then told her the truth about Santa...that he's the creepy peda from the Lions Club!

Miss_Red said...

Love the outfit today, I agree with skye she probably thought you were a princess. Afterall it's very uncommon to see such style at a supermarket!
Also thanks for including the beauty note, I've always wondered what nail polish you used :)

PorcelainBlonde said...

So sweet! The pink lip on you is really pretty, as is your whole outfit. I especially love the details like your earrings, flawless hair and tights...I'm such a fan of white tights.

I often get a fascinated reaction from children too. I think Skye's right in that their imaginations are captured by extraordinary details :)

Songy said...

Ah the ring! I heard so much about you and this blog but never had a chance to come this way and I'm glad I did. :)

You are a gorgeous looking lady. having a girl crush...

Great story, kids are so funny, she'll probably go home and try and copy your hairstyle now! It looks so perfect :)

Shannon said...

Kids can be so cute, even if she did wrinkle her nose a little!

I think you look gorgeous.

jesska said...

Oh, so cute! You never know, she may take this moment and turn out another fashionista ;)

heartofpearl♥ said...

the look on that girls face must of been hilarious! i think i'd accidentally chuckle a little too! haha. your hair is perfection. i wonder how well mine would work. i have thick hair, most likely not as silky and soft like yours:(

WendyB said...

Great 'do!

enc said...

What a judgmental little squirt!

She got her first look at anti-homogeneity, and I'm glad you were the one to give it to her!

Well done.

Rhiannon said...

I love how you do your hair!!!!

Sal said...

How fun! So she didn't say a word? Usually the ones ballsy enough to stare are ballsy enough to chat, too ...

svenskaussie said...

I bet her mother was wearing track pants, thongs and a grotty t-shirt, in other words this poor child is clearly style deprived. Quick, someone call Social Services ! Thank god you were there to show her how it's really done : )

Siljesfashion said...

Amazing look, love the black and white. Have a great week!

Louise said...

Haha what a brilliant story. And flawless look.

Miss Karen said...

That's such a cute story! You looked positively divine which I guess is a rare sight in a supermarket aisle these days (or anywhere for that matter!)

PS. I love your nail polish! It's such a great colour :D
