They Tried to Dress It Up With A Bow, At Least

Camo Ballet Flat

I present the perfect shoe for Daddy’s little girl to wear on that bonding trip to the duck blind

Seriously, do people not remember that the purpose of this pattern is to avoid getting shot?  Just because it is everywhere right now does not necessarily make it appropriate for children to wear.

 Say it with me now, “camouflage ballet flat.” That just sounds so wrong, doesn’t it?

The Croc in Sheep’s Clothing

The Wooly Mammoth!

As the Manolo would say, “Ayyyy!”

It is the Crocs for young girls masquerading as the fuzzy sheep for winter!  

If wearing these shoes, one would be advised to carefully guard one’s tender ankles. For the sheep, it looks hungry.

Footwear Friday

These boots for infant/toddler girls are from the ever so understated and subtle Roberto Cavalli:

The bling! It burns my eyes!

Now, could they try to cram any more trends into one shoe? From the animal print lining to the metallic leather, this is definitely an over-the-top shoe for that 6 month old who wants everyone to know that she is all about fashion, beeyotches. Never mind that she can’t even read the Roberto Cavalli logo embroidered onto her strap. You can, and that’s all that matters.

You’ve probably seen it already, but in case you haven’t:

Click the pic to see it full size. The site doesn’t give credit to the photographer, nor can I find that information anywhere, so if anyone knows who took this shot, please put it in the comments and we’ll link the pic to their site instead. In the meantime, here are a different kind of shadow children.

the littlest fashion critic

Say hello to TeenyManolo‘s competition.

Francesca Myers, fashion critic

Don’t worry, that’s not a dirty joke in that balloon; it’s a reference to The Fashion Weekly Daily, where Francesca made her print debut as a fashion critic. And how, you ask, would such a young tyke (only seven!) land a plushy gig like that in the cutthroat world which is fashion journalism? Eschewing such grubby pathways as years of grad school or ramen-fuelled unpaid internships, she did it the old-fashioned way: Mom got her the gig.

From Jezebel, which website I vastly prefer to The Daily‘s PDF-centric, browser-crashing monstrosity:

Elle editor-in-chief Roberta Myers’ 7-year old daughter Francesca made her critical debut. When asked what her mom has taught her about life in the front-row, she replied:

You have to look out for FANCY… Fashion in general is really pretty.

Love it! After all, who needs 800 words when it can be done in just 10?! (Also, tell us “Look out for FANCY!” doesn’t sound like something that could have passed the lips of the great Diana Vreeland.)

Actually, it does.We still can’t hate her because she’s connected. And why can’t we? Because she’s wearing the gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer sundress, and it is a widely-known fact that, however outrageously priced the Pulitzer may be, it, like the Pucci, is the physical manifestation on Earth of the visions in unicorns’ happiest daydreams, and thus the wearer is +18 protected against snark.

It’s true. You can Google it.

The shoes, however, are not Pulitzer, and thus can come under some well-earned fire. I understand beach thongs. At the beach. I understand equally that even the sainted yet dependable Dr. Scholls sandals are really just low-heeled mules and thus technically shoes, rather than mere flip-flops, and I understand moreover that children and grownups all over the world should be schooled in this difference, repeatedly if necessary. Looks like Mommy learned this lesson! Look out for inappropriately-casual!

New York Fashion Show Front Row: Mules okay; flipflops not okay.

Not even if you’re seven.
