The fashionista apple doth not fall far fromest the tree.

The Geej, left to her own devices, assembled this jaunty little number on Saturday morning:

Now, I'm all for self-expression through fashion, but this? It needs a bit of help. She's sort of going for that Molly Ringwald "Pretty in Pink" thrift store/bo-ho look. I mean she's even holding an "Emily the Strange" diary that says "Some girls are stranger than others" on the front, for Pete's sake. But really? She just looks like a kid who has rapidly outgrown a pair of pants and a shirt but doesn't seem all that concerned with it.

On a related note, this is what I, her mother, looked like at work on Monday:

And after a few hours of sporting the $4.99 knitted mumu from Savers, I decided to change into this ravishing number: Question: When is a plum colored "lounge suit" made out of questionable velourish material NOT an appropriate fashion choice? Answer: NEVER!!


Yep, she comes by it honest.

Do I even want to know what the hell you're doing in these pictures? Or would it completely blow my mind?

Your workplace looks like a lot of fun. Is that a typical day?

Ok for your information:

the shirt has 'bracelet length" sleeves and the pants are "cropped".

Both of which are very hot right now. At least, In England, they are.

So she is, indeed, a fashionista, her mom's disturbing velour stylin' notwithstanding.
