Pipsqueak Paparazzi Sarah Style.....

Sarah has been blowing my mind lately with her general awareness and consciousness of all things vintage. It's not like I skip around the house saying that's vintage, that's vintage in a la-de-da melody. But I guess through her being my daughter, me being who I am, the business and passion I have, that over time she's developing a knowing of her own.

It seems to be most present with her interest in clothing. Everyday modern kids clothes don't garner much reaction from her even though she has plenty of those, but if it's different, handmade and whether she knows it or not vintage, she gushes over it.

Recently I was sorting through some clothes that I had tucked away, that until now have been too big for her. When she noticed what I was doing she came over to me to ask if the piece I had in my hand was vintage. I chuckled of course because she was right.

So here's Sarah featuring in this weeks style collective showing off her sweet vintage embroidered again style top.

Top - a vintage pop up shop in Byron Bay a few years ago
Tights - Hand me downs from a friend
Shoes - op shopped
Peppa Pig Hair Clips - Christmas Gift from Nanna

I've been wondering what your children think about your vintage loving a habits? Do they think it's cool or a little strange and embarrassing? Have they or do they follow in your foot steps? Are they alternative with their style?

I want that top for me! Jarvis has a wardrobe that is mostly vintage/op shopped of hand made. The only new things I tend to buy him are shoes and swim wear. Most remark on how stylish he is. Jarvis? Hmm sorry to say he would prefer to be nude.

They learn by osmosis? She's got style like her mama. x

Sarah looks adorable!
My kids like some of my vintage clothes and not others (well, I doubt Owen even notices, he is not remotely interested in clothes, his own or anyone else's). The girls have their eye on some of my frocks ("when you're dead, mum"), and like coming to markets and fairs with me for a browse. I think Claudia (Eldest) has quite a good eye for putting outfits together, and is certainly different from her friends in how she dresses. They have occasionally said I'm embarrassing, but that's probably more to do with me being loud than what I wear! And it wouldn't ever make me change how I dress, they'll just have to get over it! xxx

Oh my goodness she has grown up and look how cute she is in that adorable outfit. My 12 yo has an eye for cool tee shirts and jackets. She often comes op shopping with me and has helped me find some treasures. Some kids at school have said I am weird or loud or something, but I don't care and neither does she.

Great shirt! She's so, so cute!
My kids like how I dress. The two older ones never mentioned being embarrassed by my dress sense when they were growing up, and now, while they don't generally wear anything vintage, they both wear quirky, non-mainstream clothes.

Sarah really has my heart, Trudie! She is so gorgeous, as are all three of your children! I have always gushed over my mum's antiques and many of them are now my most prized possessions! They hold great value to me because they held great value for her. Mum has never really dressed "vintage" but the few old pieces of clothing she does still have are my favourites she owns and she has been nothing but encouraging to me with my love of vintage, shouting me much coveted pieces and taking me vintage shopping! xx
