Plaids, pinks and paints

With my early nineties pink Minnie Mouse cropped tee, baby pink mini shorts with ruffles down the side and silver high-top cons double tied on my feet - I was a pretty cool 8 year old.

Remembering how amazing I felt in this outfit (those shoes!) is one of my earliest memories of how what you wear can make you feel like a superstar.

Andre 3000 put it best when he said he dresses like the music sounds to him. I have always respected fashion for this reason. For the rebellion, the creativity. Your body is a canvas, right?

Charles Anastase is my favorite example of this at the moment (Fall 2009/10).

Oh and that jacket was the exact shade of my shorts too.
