So many children of this age are going thoroughly modern with the "say something t-shirt", latest designer jean and perhaps even a less than flattering shoe. This young lady is beautiful……she has it right!!! Sometimes modern is best left behind when you can pull off a chic look like this. I say BRAVO to a very modern and stylish young girl who shows the confidence we all wish to have at any age.
Its really very cute, but I think Id rather see her in jeans. Its kind of too much of a costume for that age. But she certainly has a good sense of style and thats wonderful. i just hope that she usually lets her own features be center stage. Not a hat glasses and dress, no matter how lovely.
This image is so pure, so innocent, timeless, sentimental…it makes me pine for a daughter. She appears naive but somehow so cultivated. But, then I look at the blatant, obvious, degrading, and just plain tacky American Apparel girl flashing her butt adjacent to this innocent young girl and I snap out of my sentimental longing.
Cute girl, but I'm not in love with the playsuit… the 3/4 length sleeves and low waisted drawstring make the child look gangly when she isn't. The playsuit is wearing the child, unfortunately, when it should be the other way around.
Even the Italian children are stylist! Very cute and age appropriate. Perfect summer outfit:straw hat, gold sandals, and chambray dress. I wish the young girls here were turn away from the "hooker-wear" and I have to tell you as someone who takes ballet classes 6x a week, most people (children and adults) don't look that good in jeans–you have to be in really good shape to pull off that look.
I'm jealous. My mother was loathe to buy me-anything-when I was this girl's age. "You'll just outgrow it." On the other hand, she taught me stay thin and fit, and I'll look good in anything. She was correct.
I don't get it. If you were her age, would you think it cute, or just scratch your head? American Apparel may be pedophile catering, but its more what kids her age like to wear. Shouldn't she be more in tune with her peers then adults?
I wonder if she takes ballet classes…she stands so straight, with her chest lifted and open, and both feet turned out. Lovely. And I always love a child who is more "in tune" with adults than other kids – I was one, myself. And I learned much about character, style, and life that still benefits me far beyond my yet-young years.
Michael and Bridgit; My niece was here wrecking my computer and looking at this with her buddies, and I recalled this, and wanted their opinion; I can tell you what they said. This isn't coming from me, so… In summery; I think that its a bit too understated, and impractical for them. They weren't that impressed. I don't think they liked the fit of the dress. A bit too shapeless. The hat was too large in their eyes. The shoes make her feet look flat ( thats not exactly what they said, but close). They seemed to like the sunnies OK. Of course thats just three girls. If you know other kids around that age, you can ask them. Maybe they would like it more. On the other hand, they loved Scotts blog.
I cannot help but finally comment on this…I really love this picture. The girl is cute and her style is beautiful as well, but what I like best that her stance is very Edward Gorey-esque. Despite it not being dark and macabre as Gorey’s work is most often described there’s something about it, besides her feet being in a widened ballerina position, that just captures Gorey.
