Lana’s Journal: On Why You Should Make Sure Your Kids Are Fashionable

I missed writing very personal notes on my blog. I used to do that currently before but due to my strong focus on fashion, I lost track of certain things I really enjoy writing about. Hence, I decided to launch this category, my little journal where I will share notes about everything I feel like writing about. It could still be about fashion or simply about something in my surroundings that recently caught my attention. It’s like therapy. Yes, writing about these little random things that make my day or these little things that drive me completely mad will help me share with you so many things.

Tonight, I’m starting this journal with a little note on fashion and childhood. Experts are very divided when it comes to whether we should care about kids’ fashion or not. Some believe that this increase of interest for kids’ fashion proves that our societies are declining while others think this actually matters because it’s simply another form of art. Personally, I want to be positive regarding this issue. Kids do get a lot out of fashion. They are exposed to new shapes, colors, patterns, materials, shapes, motifs and styles.

Also, the most beautiful part of fashion is that it’s a tool for an individual to express himself. As your child grows up, he will find a greater need to express his individuality and through some indirect fashion knowledge, your kid will start to do so. There’s also the fact that children are a reflection of their parents and their beliefs so they are like our little representatives in the outside world, so why not make them look gorgeous? Life is beautiful and there’s nothing like initiating the future generations to beauty..

Furthermore, when you provide your kids with unique items that have different characters, you give them even more chances of standing out and developing their own sense of style.

Fashion is a fort of art, a form of expression, both on the part of the designer and the people who enjoy it.
Last but not least, there’s nothing cuter that an adorable little kid fashionably dressed up! Edible!

If you ask me about my childhood, I’ll have to say that I owe a lot to my mama’s sense of style. I used to wake up and directly wear my Cinderella pair of tiny heels and carry my little purse full of microscopic lipsticks. I used to cry when I didn’t like the outfit my mom would chose for me and she would spent months working on the design of my birthday dress. I have so many memories when it comes to fashion, art and beauty. I have never looked back at these details this way so I wanted to write this short note to take a little step back and think about these things that made me the person I am today. As Coco Chanel once said, fashion is everywhere!
