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!
