It didn’t take long for me to notice that JetSet Tot was passed the style gene in her DNA. I could tell from a very early age that it was innate and not something she’s learned along the way. She has an impeccable eye for picking out designer duds and because of this, not only a joy to shop for, but with. Now if only my AMEX could only keep up!
Even as a young toddler, she was never into the flashy stuff like: tutus, frills and leopard prints that kids are normally attracted to. She created her own version of preppy rockstar chic that reminded me more of a Gwen Stefani slash Taylor Swift hybrid than Katy Perry with a twist Lady Gaga, or pageant princess.
“Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” Anna Wintour
And the girl never met an accessory she didn’t love. I bet her sunglass collection could rival that of Sir Elton John himself.
Not afraid to mix trends, patterns and fabrics, she stays true to her personal sense of style, and owns her creations by slapping on a pair of Chuck Taylors or Doc Martens combat boots with a dress. Oh, and the girl can accessorize. She’s my pocket sized Carrie Bradshaw.
Oh, have I mentioned she’s only 8?
This summer she’ll be attending Fashion Camp, so for now she’s been hooked on getting her hands on everything she can that has to do with the fashion world. In support of her quest, we’ve added these fashion books to her collection that are age appropriate for the tot to tween demographics. She’s learned so much, and correctly identifies period piece costume designs while watching movies and television shows.
