Styled by a Child

When I first saw Summer Bellessa’s blog go viral (the one where she let her toddler dress her for a week), I immediately  texted my sister and said WE HAVE TO DO THIS! I love the way kids view clothes…similar to the way fashion designers see clothes…no rules, nothing holding them back, no judgements.

My 3.75 year old son, Dre did great…I LOVED his outfit choices…but…he got bored after 3 outfit pulls. Let’s be honest, picking skirts just doesn’t compare to playing monster trucks or annoying your baby brother!

I was cruising my Facebook page to see who I could pester to help me with the rest of my pulls. A friend had posted a photo of one of her daughters walking down the street with a pair of butterfly wings on…I immediately thought, “I want HER to style ME!” Luckily her and her equally awesome twin sister were game to come over and pull some great looks for me! Thank you Ezraylah + Iliana for your help in dressing me! I love the way you made a dress into a shirt and were careful to have each outfit completed right down to sunglasses + hats!

Melissa was able to come down for the weekend so we chose some of our favorite high fashion poses and really made it into a fashion shoot! Hope you enjoy this fun blog as much as we did!!

Outfit by Dre Age 3.75

This outfit is called…PINK! Big surprise! Haha!…Oh and it’s not a scarf…it’s a tail.

Outfit by Ezraylah. Age 5

This green dress has special memories for me. It was one of the first pieces I bought when I moved to New York City. Yes…that means it has been in my closet for over 7 years. Should I be embarrassed? Some pieces just hold such great memories they are hard to get rid of. Glad she picked this one:)Jstyled2 Outfit By Dre. Age 3.75

The outfit is influenced by Circles…if you hadn’t noticed already. Jstyled3

Outfit by Dre. Age 3.75

This has to be my favorite outfit of all. This skirt. The leggings. The mismatched shoes. Most random shirt. I am just in love with it all. Jstyled4

Outfit by Ezraylah. Age 5

I call this my Paris Chic outfit. There is just something about this dress that makes a person smile. Love the details she chose…right down to the belt and hat. I would easily wear this one! Jstyled5

Outfit by Ezraylah. Age 5

Now this outfit has all my favorite elements in it. Some black + white, lots of sparkle + shine, some pink…It’s a bit of a mishmash! I love how Ezraylah made this B+W dress into a shirt rather than keeping it as a dress. Not something that we, as typical consumers tend to think about doing when we buy something. Clever young lady!Jstyled6

Outfit by Iliana. Age 5

This outfit has A LOT going on! But hey! If you want to stand out here in Eugene…you HAVE to have A LOT going on! Love the blinged out hat, aviators, and of course…a shiny pink skirt! Jstyled7

Outfit by Iliana. Age 5

I personally love this outfit. It kind breaks all the rules…and yet kinda looks pretty cool? I would have never put a belt with this outfit…or a plaid scarf…or matched pink sunnies with a red plaid scarf…yet…somehow this little 5 year old stylist did her thang’ and made it work! Love it! Jstyled8

 

 

While Jenn had some looks that were downright adorable and even editorial, mine however were that of a colorblind man. Or were we just seeing the difference between the minds of boys and girls?

My boys Noah (10) and Simon (7) were completely on board with pulling looks for me. I was amused to watch them as they both put a lot of thought into selecting my outfits.  Originally they both chose a week of outfits but we only had time to shoot 4 each.  They thought it would be funny to put together one ‘crazy’ outfit each.  I included this ‘crazy’ outfit and I dare you to try to figure out which ones they are!

As I was watching them make their decisions, all the while hiding a smile, I couldn’t help but make some observations.  All shoes need socks regardless of style.  Highheels…socks, loafers…socks, flats…socks.  They also both seemed to prefer skirts/dresses to pants.  Noah, being an animal lover, gravitated towards animal prints.  At some point he decided that the outfits needed to be named and Simon jumped on board with this idea. To name a few looks that did not get photographed were ‘The Jungle’, ‘Big One 44’, ‘Everythings’ and ‘Red Hot’.  They were really disappointed when they found out we didn’t have time to photograph them all:(

Simon called this look Hodie (not to be mistaken for Hoodie).

He started the task by saying to himself “Start easy with socks.” I’d like to point out those precious Hello Kitty socks. The boys got these for my birthday because all girls like pink and Hello Kitty.  Mstyled3Noah called this look Snowy White.  

He started out trying to go with all white but because my summer stuff is put away in tubs it was tricky.  He then noticed the bird dress and he had to use it…with the flamingo socks.  Birds of a feather flock together?

Mstyled7Noah called this one Storm Trooper 073.  

Obvi.  I thought Noah had lost interest half way through because the next thing I know he’s downstairs doing crafts.  But nope.  He comes back up with a homemade construction paper gun to complete my Storm Trooper outfit.  Bless his heart.  Every woman needs one of those in her purse.  Mstyled1 Simon called this one Rigie Pigey.  

I have no words.  Mstyled5Noah named this look The Terrible No Good Very Bad Dressing Day.  

Well the name gives it away.  This is Noah’s wild outrageous look.  The color combination with the stripes is not a good look if you were to ask him.  The burning question in my mind was, why do I still have that hat?Mstyled2
Noah called this look Lady C.A.P. (Cool Animal Prints)

Even though he choose this dress as part of this ensemble, last Sunday when I wore it to church (styled differently however), he was mortified! “You’re going to wear that?!” He told me that he thought it was inappropriate for Sunday. Apparently he has reached the age of embarrassment.  Ohhhh…this is gonna be fun!Mstyled4Simon named this look Crazy Girl 27. 

Haha…I love that in his eyes this outfit was clearly nuts, meanwhile it’s just as random as the rest!

(Again with the hat!  I really need to re edit my closet!) Mstyled6
Simon named this look Coodies.  

So even though there are some favorite accessories of mine in this outfit, they just don’t work all together. This is me hanging my head in shame!Mstyled8

The Designers

These are a few of the designers we managed to photograph as they left their shows.

Marc by Marc Jacobs chose ’70s silhouettes in bright stripes.

With rocker husband Gavin Rossdale and son Kingston sitting front-row, Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B. delivered an African-inspired collection.  And wow, does this lady have a following!  A large crowd gathered in the drizzling rain waiting for the designer/singer/songwriter to exit the building.

“For spring 2011, we were inspired by the stylish film, ‘White Mischief’. We were fascinated by the idea of a woman with a very languid, proper veneer with a smoldering sensuality just beneath the surface.” Mark Badgley and James Mischka

Carolina Herrera’s line was inspired by two things:  the traditional clothes of Korea and botanical plates collected in the eighteenth century.

Michael Kors ‘naturaluxe’ style was relaxed sophistication.

Isaac Mizrahi’s spring collection was called IM Xerox, his take on photocopy-like prints.

Tracey Reese’s muse was a traveler of both time and space.

Herve Leger by Max Azria, well-known for his bandage dress, presented a corseted Marie Antoinette of the future.  His wife, Lubov Azria, is of course in one of his latest creations.

Cah razy colorful Betsey Johnson used a bike ride through New York City as her runway setting.  La Tour de Betsey stopped in Brooklyn, Central Park and ended at Times Square.  She then finished her show with her signature cartwheel…we also need to mention she’s 68 years old!?!
