Kids these days are very tech savvy. I think the Drama Queen and the Daredevil are more at home on my iPhone and iPad than I am – well they are on the apps that they know and love. The drama Queen is particularly enamoured with the households i devices. She has recently discovered a new app, admittedly I introduced her to it, but she has embraced it wholeheartedly. She refers to it before she decides on what she is going to wear each day, and tries to plan her clothes for the day to match.
Colorforecast by Pimkie scans the crowds in the fashion capitals of Paris, Milan and Antwerp and aggregates the colours people are wearing to provide you with the trending colours for each city. It then, of course suggests clothing that you could buy from Pimkie to match the trending colours. This is not only a great way of creating a bit of inspiration for your wardrobe, but it has also given me a bit of design inspiration when designing.
The Drama Queen has adopted a very fond affection for anything French. At four years old, this never ceases to amaze me. She has a large picture of the Eiffel Tower on her wall, is teaching herself French through a kids french language CD and has decided that when she grows older she will become a Paris fashion girl. She will not only design and make the clothes, but model them too in her grand scheme of things to come. So of course her daily check of colorforecast hinges solely around the colour trending for Paris.
The Drama Queen has always been very creative in her clothing choices, and there have been some almighty battles had over what clothes can and can’t be worn together, but adding this extra dynamic into the decision making process has been, hmmmm, well, shall I say interesting. Here are some of her creations based on the trending colour in Paris.
I love that she is embracing colour and creativity at such a young age, I just wish that I didn’t have to constantly explain that she likes to dress herself! She is so in love with styling herself that she has come up with “a wonderful idea” she told me this morning that everyone would love to see the clothes she chooses for herself, and that maybe she should be just like me and have a blog and she would call it “What The Drama Queen’s Wearing Today”. Hmmmmmm maybe she might like to learn to write first!
