A fashion icon in the making
When a friend posted her daughter's first-day-of-school picture, I immediately thought of Carrie Bradshaw's white chiffon skirt.
Khloe, a second grader in St. Petersburg, has had an adventurous sense of style ever since she was a toddler.
"She always loved wearing princess dresses to the grocery store. I let her be creative and she has kept that going as she's gotten older," her mom Jill said. Khloe's other favorite fashion statements include brown high-tops with pink trim, a headband with blue kitty cat ears, long kitty cat socks and suspenders with wings.
I'm by far not the first to observe that style is looking good wearing what you love, not wearing exactly what everybody else is wearing or paying a fortune for the labels that are deemed to be in by certain designers or school queen bees of the moment.
It takes not just a good eye for style but also guts to wear something that stands out. I hope Khloe will maintain both as she gets older and there's more pressure to conform.
And by the way, when I found the picture of SJP as Carrie Bradshaw I discovered a link from Harper's Bazaar of her 50 best looks. This is great inspiration from Sex & the City's amazing costume designer Pat Field stand out from the crowd.
