My daughter loves dressing up. Maybe, she got it from me. But, I must admit that even at a young age, her taste is way better than mine. I let her choose her own set of clothes and sometimes, I even seek her opinion regarding my outfit. Yes, this is true! No sugar-coating here. I love that she expresses clearly her own viewpoint on her clothes because I’m totally the other way around. I grew up dependent with my mom, she dictates to me (yes, at the present form) what to wear and what I shouldn’t. So, it’s really harder for me to decide when she’s not around. I’m a self-confessed mama’s girl and I don’t care what other people will say.
Going back to Keisha, last Halloween, I asked her what costume she wanted to wear. She said, assured of what she wanted, “Mommy, I want to be a pirate.” Then I searched for online sites selling customized costumes for little girls. And, there I found one. Lead-time had to be for two weeks, good thing, I was able to convince the couturier to accept my order even at a short notice.
