Signs of Style at an Early Age

1
Personal style can be learned, certainly, but some are born with it.  We thought pre-school sisters Ava and Lillian showed signs of a genetic predisposition when we spotted the two stylish little girls eating ice cream with their Daddy. Ava, 5, and Lillian, 3, may be younger than your average frock star, but they own their look.

You both look so pretty. I love what you’re wearing! Even your flip-flops match!

Ava: We both like dresses.

Who picks out your clothes to wear for the day, Mommy or Daddy?
We do it!

 What are you going to do this summer? 
Ava: Go to the pool.  Lillian: Go to the playground.
What’s your favorite thing to do when school is out?
Ava: Play outside!  Lillian: Dress up like a princess.
Lillian wrapped herself around her father’s knee as Ava giggled. A perfect Father’s Day photo op.

Welcome to Sartorial Baltimorial, our weekly street chronicle of a Baltimorean who expresses his or her personality in dress. We sent out fashion writer and stylist Mary Ellen Brown and Annapolis photographer Lee Kriel to cast their trained eyes and I.D. local personal style at its best. – The Eds.

 

Yoga instructor Elaine caught our eye with her natural beauty and incredible dreadlocks as she entered Whole Foods Market in Mt. Washington.

 

Tell me about your dreadlocks. Is that your real hair?

Yes. I haven’t brushed my hair in eleven years.

Eleven years. Wow! How do you wash it?

Like a mop! It’s wash, wash, wash (makes washing noise) and then squeeze, like a mop.

What did you dress for today?

I’m a yoga instructor so I have to wear something that won’t get in the way of my movement.

Of course you’re a yoga instructor! What do you usually wear?

Most days I wear a girly top and yoga pants.  I have to be able to move.

Thanks for talking to us.

You made my day!
