Want to Know How You REALLY Look in That Dress? Don’t Ask Your Girlfriends…

We’ve all been there before: on a shopping trip with a gaggle of girlfriends who all claim you look awesome in that tunic, when really you look 20 lbs. heavier than you actually are.  It’s human nature, I guess, to tell white lies to our friends, but the truth is, we’re doing each other a disservice.  So how do we know how we really look in those acid wash jeans?

Ask a four-year-old, of course!

Author Sunny Chanel posted a hilarious article on babble.com a few days ago with the help of her four-year-old daughter, Annabella.  Annabella is a fashionista-in-training, according to Sunny, and she shared some of the cutest (and most honest!) comments about celeb fashion.

When she saw this picture of SJP…

…she said: “Her dress looks like a witch dress. Actually, she looks like a ballerina witch. She doesn’t look pretty. She looks kind of scary.”

She felt very differently about Nicole Richie’s purple frock…

…saying, “Ohhhh! Her dress is pretty! That is my favorite color. That and pink, purple, and green and red and black. Maybe she is a flamingo dancer?”

But her favorite seemed to be Jennifer Lopez.

Annabella said, “That girl is pretty. She is pretty pretty. All of her is pretty pretty. She’s a movie girl I think. Her dress reminds me of Alvin & the Chipmunks because one of the little chipmunk girls had a silver dress on just like it.”

Frankly, I couldn’t agree with her more!

Go to Babble.com to see all of Annabella’s adorable commentary.

What do you think about Annabella’s opinions?  Do you rely on your friends for advice on how you look?  Ever suspect that they are lying to you?  Have you ever asked a child for his or her opinion?  Tell me all about it in the comments!

Happy June!

Memorial Day has come and gone, and although summer doesn’t officially start for a few more weeks, I’m feeling very nautical this morning.  Anyone have a sailboat they’d like to lend me?

Here are some fun nautical items from Etsy…

Like this awesome canvas tote by ikabags:

And this fun anchor pendant, made by Blended:

I love Kainkain’s pillow cover with reef embroidery:

I’m thinking of starting a business, just so I can order a set of happygirlgreetings’ starfish business cards:

And if you’re a size 7.5 (sadly, I am not), I highly recommend that you pop on over to shopREiNViNTAGE to check out these rope wedges:

Any of you lovelies feeling nautical today?  Feeling any other inspiration lately?  Anyone made up their mind about lending me that sailboat?
