Today is my daughter Jean’s birthday. This photo taken by her dad while they were on an evening stroll one summer day, when she was 6 years old.
Jean is a born fashionista and started expressing herself when she was a little girl. As a toddler she decided what she wanted to wear. She started pattern mixing before it was fashionable. When I politely tried to persuade her to my choice in a pair of boots when she was five years old, she chose the ones she liked and looked up at me with an equally polite response, but firmly said, “Mommy, I have my own taste.”
Jean has an eco boutique in Seattle. She has a natural talent for setting up displays and creating a lovely ambience in her store, which is not surprising, she’s also an excellent photographer and painter with a flair for fashion and decor.
Jean started blogging in 2011 and I’ve put together a collage of a few of her outfits. Her style is eclectic and never boring. Whether she’s dressed up in a DVF or dressed down in shorts, she always looks elegant and classy. (click on the first photo to go through the gallery)
Happy birthday to my favourite daughter!
Let’s make the world a better place with compassion.
