I sadly am without any new fiercely-styled photos from my 11 year old nephew of his mannequin Martinique. Bummer. I get that creativity is fluid and styling his mannequin isn't always where his interests lay. As I semi-patiently await new pictures, I'd like to share this story about him as relayed via my sister. Picking her son up from a play date, the first words out of his mouth were, "What are your three favorite trends?" My sister who's seldom stumped replied, "Hmmmmm.... well...... ahhhhhhh...... I'm going to have to think that over and get back to you on that. What are yours?" Without missing a beat, he answered, "Shrunken jackets, high waisted skirts, and ankle boots." Do I hear a snap, snap, snap? Here's a visual.
I googled those three items along with Forever 21: shrunken jacket/ Forever 21, high waisted skirt/ Forever 21....... as that's his favorite store. :) I should mention that my sister shared this story about six weeks ago so these trends may have already come and gone, but that's fashion. As Heidi Klum says, "One minute you're in and the next you're out!" My nephew and his mannequin Martinique clearly will always be in and ahead of fashion.
What are your three favorite trends?
