My love is a little tom boy ! Share the special story of your munchkin and be the giveaway winner



When I found out I was going to have a baby girl three years ago I was filled with dreams of a little girl in princess style dresses, tutus and fairy wings.  What I got is totally opposite. She is still very adorable three year old but she has a very unique sense of style. She is very tom boyish ! If I let her dress all by herself all she will wear is a trouser and a tee probably with red shoes and beaded necklace !!

Since I intervene the above is how she looks usually (Like the sketch above) !!  I have bought, and made lots of skirts for her but she will only wear them with leggings or tights. She loves to play baseball with her dad and her favourite TV show is Thomas Train. She knows the names of every train from the show. When you start thinking there is something wrong with this little girl she will surprise you by taking her dolly for a stroll and feeding the dolly milk from her sippy cup !! She likes to wear skirts when I wear them and likes to twirl in it but she will wear it with a legging only.

She doesn't like to have little piggy tails or bunny ears as she calls them.If I try to comb her hair and make it look all nice, she will move her hand all over her hair and tells me that's how she wants to look !

If I show the princesses dolls she has and ask her if she wants to dress like them? she says," NO MOMMY I WANT TO BE GOYI "(that's how she says her name) Then points at the doll of princess Jasmine and tells me she wants to dress like her, in pants, but doesn't want her belly button to show. Then she shows me this character from Sid the Science Kid called Gabriela and says "I want to dress like her (Like the little girl in pink outfit) " !







When I see little girls dressed pretty like a princess I go awwwwwwww .......how cute ! but I can never make my princess dress like a princess. She has a mind of her own !! When she chooses what she wants to wear she looks like the sketch below. People usually think she is a boy when she does that !




May be there are many girls out there who like to "dress like a  dude ", remember that's what Angelina thinks of her four year old Shiloh :) That's a little relief to know I am sailing with a celebrity !! LOL !!

Well my daughter looks just like me but she couldn't be more different. I was always a tomboy but she is such a girly girl. She loves pretty, frilly pink things and wearing crowns. She even sets up tea parties for her and the dog. I must admit, it is fun dressing up in pretty clothing and feeling feminine. It's a shame it took me so long to discover that perhaps I'm not a tomboy deep down at all :)

when i was little (age 7-8), i dressed up mostly in pants/jeans and always saved my frilly dresses for good occasions like birthday parties and outings. i remember i even used to organise my closet and put the good dresses in their own section because i didn't want them getting dirty. i hated anyone touching them, especially my brothers whom i had to share a room with since we lived in a small flat at the time. as a grown up now, i haven't changed...casual pants for work and i save the dresses and skirts for parties. and yes, my dresses have their own wardrobe in my house. :-)

My Coco, who has congenital adrenal hyperplasia knows the moment I get exasperated. She'll say "mommy" (for the 178th time). And I'll say "What?" (not in a good way). And then her response will be "I love you". And then I'll feel bad. I do say "I love you back". I promise! She's 4.

I love the little girl in the photo on my blog post above. Wild black stripes with cheetah patterns, pink tutu, cowboy boots, and pigtails. My niece dresses this way too (she dresses herself of course). I love it! Love it love it!

When my youngest was born, her sister, Lillianna Rose fell in love with her. I was grateful and a little surprised.

While I was pregnant, Lillianna and her brother didn't seem as interested in the coming baby as they were in how huge my belly was growing. I worried constantly about how they would react to the baby.

I also spent months trying to come up with a name that everyone would be happy with. I liked Malena. No one else did. I liked Anastacia. That really set eyes rolling. Finally, I compromised with Alina Anastacia.

The baby finally arrived and she was as precious and perfect as a baby can be. I swear, she never fussed. She just looked around so wisely from the very first day.

Alina was tiny, pink with the fullest head of black hair. For her first showing to her new family, she was dressed in a bright pink gown and matching beret.

Everyone approached the bassinet in quiet awe to gaze down at the sleeping baby.

Lillianna, wise beyond her 6 years, looked upon her sister for the first time and sighed, "She is so special. She has to be a Rose, too."

That is why my 5 year old entering, Kindergarten this year, has to learn to write Alina-Rose Anastacia Honaker on her school work. The special name bestowed upon her by her loving sister.

I didn't wear dresses until I was 16. i hated them with a passion. I was a jeans and t-shirt type of girl. I hated pink, but i did wear flowered shirts which was the most girly I would be. I was always playing with frogs and mud pies well into my teen years even. haha. I still do though, but with my boys! anyway, Now look at me. . .dresses dresses dresses.

With my first daughter I was completely in love and didn't think their was anyway possible that I could love her more.........until my second daughter was born. "I'm a big girl now mommy is what she told me" thinking ya that's nice... i didn't understand till she went to the bathroom in the hospital and used the toilet. She has been dry ever since (6 whole months and counting) every morning she kisses her sister and tells her a story and and has informed me she loves being a big girl and a big sister!!

It sounds very idyllic and believe me its not!! However, when it comes to being lucky I surely am... both my girls are great and my first really has turned into the big girl we both knew she would be!

My 20-month-old daughter is a total girly girl- almost every day she's trying to get into my makeup, wearing my shoes or scarves, or just emptying her dresser and putting on as many shirts as she can fit over her head. I came in to get her yesterday morning wearing a long silky nightgown, and she said, "Mommy have on beautiful dress!"

I let her wear her tutu and she twirls and squeals "ballerina!" I can always cheer her up by shopping online for purses- and as far as jewelry goes, she's addicted...

But I'm trying to encourage her mind, too, so she will be a bookworm and explorer and creator as well as a fashionista!

I wrote this for part of my college application essay... :) so I cheated a little. I apologize in advance!

t three years old, I wanted to dance, and not just the everyday “jumping around in your pajamas, while the Sesame Street theme song played” type of dancing. I wanted to be a ballerina, twirling around like the delicate plastic figurines in jewelry boxes. During this stage in my life, I begged and cried to my mom, as most three year olds do, to let me go to a dance school. Yet, the youngest age category for toddlers was five years old. Upon hearing this news, my little heart sank into oblivion, but I did not give up. In fact, I ran out into the parking lot of that little dance hall and laid down, refusing to stand up or move for anyone or anything that wished to pass by.

Let's just say I was a little diva when I was younger...not to mention I would change clothes 4-5 times a day...Sorry, Mom...

My oldest daughter is the spitting image of her dad. But she loves to dress up! She will get dressed in the morning and always try to wear her special dresses to play outside, plopping herself into the only pile of dirt in the yard.

One day after having a bad dream, we talked about trying to think of thinks that make her Happy, she said "I think I will think about DIRT"

When I was little I was a tomboy - not out of rebellion but out of convenience (played every sport imaginable). I unfortunately owned a lot of sweatsuits and Adidas warm up gear. My mom would try to dress me "pretty" any chance she got past the 4th grade but I made it pretty clear that I wasn't playing dodgeball or soccer at lunchtime with a skirt and fancy shoes. However, I was such a secret fashionista from an early age. It got to the point when at 10 I began my own "fashion line" called wait for it...Wild Star (lame I know but it wasn't a line without the word 'star' in it). This line was ultra late 90s esque with midriff tops, flare jeans, baggie khaki pants, plaid shirts to pair with the midriff tops, tshirts with images of daisies, unicorns, and yes I had a shirt that said Bite Me with fangs (bigtime Buffy fan). The color scheme was very loud - a lot of brights and corals because those were the prettiest pencils/ gel pens to sketch with. I sometimes would add a 3-D element with glitter or tiny bits of feather and pipe cleaners.

The line also featured a lot of flouncy peasant tops and babydoll style dresses. Sneakers, 50s simple white/pink/red heels (sometimes with bows), and Spice Girl platforms were all the rage in my collection. The random part about it though was that along with my "hip, happening" attire suggestions I would draw full-out princess gowns with puffy sleeves and huge hooped skirts. There would be layers beyond layers of flounce and there would be room for cleavage (a bit awkward considering I had no idea what this was at that age). I don't know how the ideas tied together but my mom always was encouraging. Not sure how she kept it together considering how many of my poorly drawn models has really elaborate eyebrows and were throwing up Girl Power signs all over the place. I guess my fashion ambition was an amusing way to entertain myself on Sunday afternoons. Still my sketches proved a clear indication that fashion designer would probably not appear on my resume at any point in my life. :) Really fun to have these memories and sketches to look back on though!

I love your dresses. Where do you find your inspiration? Are you a Mad Men viewer? :)

Theo ...I watched a few of madmen episodes. Planning to watch all of them. When I watch Mad men I get carried away and make things that maynot find a market. I am carefuly choosng new styles right now to add to my present collection. Online selling can be very tricky as you have to make things that will fit most body types.

I love vintage dresses. I love the way they look on women. It turns out my audience likes and expect me to make vintage styles than contemporary. So here I am making vintage style dresses. It's very exciting I couldn't have done anything else with more passion.

ShristiStudio said...

Oh one more thing ...You don't have to be good in drawing to be a designer. Your sketches get better with practice. All you need is to be a fashionista ! Basic knowledge of pattern making and a lot of motivation.

If you still have the sketches send them to me I will post it ..

Joanne J said...

Wow the dresses at your store are very beautiful! I would have a hard time choosing my favorite :)

Thinking back, I used to dress up mostly in tees and jeans when I was a kid. I have the short and nerdy hairstyle which made me look like a tomboy. I don't understand why my parents made me dress up that way! I wished I could have pretty dresses just like other girls.

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Katya came to America from Ukraine and when she did, she wanted to look like all the other fourth graders, even though she was used to wearing dresses and skirts while all they wore were jeans and T shirts! She especially liked T shirts with sayings on them, since she was learning English (fast)! I was the very opposite, my mother says that I used to plead with her to put on my pretty white gloves even when we were just going out for a walk, and in winter I had a doll that was also a hand-warmer (she wore a coat and the skirt of it was the handwarming part, you put your hands in from either side, a muff) that I loved so much that I almost wore it out! Even today I prefer dresses and skirts to jeans or pants!

My two year old copies everything mommy does. When I had her sister she was so excited. We got her a doll and she acted out everything that mommy was doing to the new baby including nursing her. She would say "eat time" and proceed to nurse her doll. She would change the dolls diaper and say "stinky."

My oldest daughter wore a Snow White costume that we found in a free box on the side of the road for 18 months every day, and often at night! I would hand wash it at night, and by the time she stopped wearing it I had sewn new gold lame' onto the front of it three diffrent times! She spopped wearing it because she finally got tired of how rude people were to her about it not being halloween! But Eveyone in our city new her as "the girl in the Snow White Dress"! Truelly it was the sweetest, I now have that worn out, grubby dress carefully stored away in my girls memory box and one day (when I have my forutune LOL) I want to frame it :) It is my biggest memory of my daughters toddlerhood - every single picture we have of her from 2/12-4 she is in that dress! My sister-in law was getting married in that time and was very upset when she thought she would wear it to her weding so we bought her a Snow White doll, she wore the dress in the car to the wedding, changed in into a more"apporpriate by the families satandard" dress and then the second that wedding was over she was back in her dress :) I love it, and her for it. She is who she is!

My daughter is an original, eleven years old, loves dragons and draws them really well. Has her own fashion sense which works well for her and yes she is a Tomboy (much like her momma at this age) She has such a wild sense of humor that sometimes she gets me braying with laughter!! I love her so much and look forward to her growing, sharing,and giggling her way into adulthood:)

I have two little girls (3 and 5) who are a combination of "girly girl" and tomboy all in one, LOL. They love to dress up as princesses with tiaras and pretty dresses and to play with dolls but they also love cars, trains and monsters.
But what gets me the most is that they don't have a problem with dressing up in their favourite dresses, stockings and party shoes and then running out into our back yard to dig in the dirt and sandpit with their daddy!

I have always been around boys, 4 brothers, only girl. About 90% of my friends were boys. So it was no suprise that I had 2 boys! I am head over heels for my boys and hubby! One of my biggest blessings in life was meeting the greatest man in the world, who i married, had two precious boys with, and gave me a girl! Finally a girl who would be lin my life forever! "Sissy" was 4 when hubby and I met and it was love at first site! She is now 10 and going into 5th grade. Now I know why god decided to give me boys. I cant handel it. Having a girl is so scary and they grow so much faster it seems! I love how she talks to me about everything and opens up. I never had that growing up. She knows that I am a parents and she has to respect and obey me and we are not "best pals" untill she is an adult! :) I love that we have the perfect relationship that I wish me and my mother had growing up.

Your little girl sounds just precious--skirts and dresses or not, she has a determined and decisive mind already--not a bad thing!
My husband and I have been blessed with two daughters. Around the time when our oldest turned one and we found out we were expecting baby number two, I received a sewing machine as a gift. Little did I know how that machine would transform our lives! I started making hair accessories for my oldest when she was just a baby so she was used to trying on my late-night creations from the womb almost! Well headbands turned to bibs, which turned to appliqued onesies, which turned to dresses and skirts...now I try to make the majority of the clothes in their closets each season. Now that my oldest is two and I have had her try on and take off and then try on again many outfits and sewing projects I have attempted, she is getting a little old of it all and my former girly girl now says things like, "i not wear that" when she sees me coming, completed sewing project in hand. I was starting to get a little sad about it, but this week, I sewed her a gathered layered skirt. I was expecting the same sort of little fight about trying it on, but she did it this time not too reluctantly. I was excited just about that little step...but what I overheard her saying to her daddy while he was kissing her goodbye made my heart very glad. She said to him so proudly, "daddy, my mommy made this for me!!" oh I think I smiled from ear to ear and back again! Who knows how long she will willingly sport my fashions, but at least I have the memory that she was at one time very pleased that mommy sewed. So sew on I will!

I am the mommy of 4 precious girls. All girly girls to the max..lol My youngest who's 2 refuses to leave the house without a purse and her tinkerbell cell phone. she loves dresses, tutu's and frills Now if only she'd let me do something girly with her hair..lol she has a weird curly mullet thing going on :)

Theo said...

haha! Trust me ... these were pretty legitimately bad (clothes, models, all) - it made for a jolly good time though. One day when I rack up enough courage I might scan them to you! :)

Anissa said...

My little girl is too small to really have fashion opinions yet, but my little boy loves to help choose her clothes so that she looks "oh so cute" :)

My youngest daughter who is now 12, always wanted to wear dresses or skirts with ruffles and soft fabrics. She didn't care much for tennis shoes but wanted more of a dressy style. When she was about 18 months she had this favorite red velveteen skirt with ruffles, that she would wear all the time. She had outgrown it but still kept wearing it over leggings. She got to where she didn't wear it all the time and it stayed in her dresser drawer. I put it in the garage hoping for it to make it to the Goodwill, eventually. I kept it out there about 6 months and she didn't ask about it, so I thought I could finally get rid of it. I took it to the donation center without her knowing and within the week, she asked where her red, ruffly skirt was! It was hard to tell her that I had given it away. I kinda wish I had kept it now.

Karen said...

My oldest daughter is/was always her own person. When she was small, I "lost" her one day. Finally found her on our open front porch, dressed in my cowboy boots (over her thighs), an unbuttoned hot pink midriff shirt (like a little bolero jacket) and white panties yelling at and killing the "damnants." Guess she had heard me complain about the ants one too many times. She complains when I show that picture now. hahaha
