What My Daughter Wore.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

These color-splashed illustrations are the work of Brooklynite Jenny Williams, whose blog What My Daughter Wore showcases the sartorial savvy of her children and their peers. Scrolling through reminded me of an interview I did earlier this year with stylist Andreas Kokkino. Andreas told me that his greatest style heroes were "kids on the street" — in particular, one who wore Nike slides with socks and a Disney Princess beach towel. I loved that, and I love these, too.






See more at What My Daughter Wore. For further inspiration, please refer to this photo of my niece, Calla, captured at age four on the streets of Brooklyn.

What a great idea and site ... Her illustrations are so good and the kids in her world seem like very interesting people!

This is so cool. Never thought kids' fashion this way. Her blog inspired me (be afraid, my family!)

So cute. Do you follow Humans of New York on Instagram? I am sure you do. Anyway, sometimes he posts "Today in micro-fashion" showing what the kids are wearing and it's always adorable.

another thumbs up for the micro-fashion posts - HONY made me re-think how super stylish kids can be (perhaps a reflection of their parents) but I like to think they have some say in what they put on too :)

I wiled away a bunch of time on Jenny Williams's site thanks to this fabulous rec. Kids are so cool, aren't they? I just love how they choose to express themselves. That's what fashion's for, right?! They get it right every time.

Brianna, I haven't seen that series but I'll look for it! Thanks!

Joana, thank you!

Helen, they are! I wish I had the confidence to wear a neon pink Care Bear costume — love that little girl's attitude in that one :)
