L’enfant Fashionistas – Fashion Maven

Your fashion maven is a tiny bit tired. I’m putting my feet up and eating a chocolate as soon as I post this set of darling images of L’Enfant fashionista. These petits délices are all the better for the attitudes they manifest. The somber little things you see in so many children’s fashion adverts, dressed and posed to resemble small adults, cannot compare to little girls and boys whose inner child and outer child match.

Les enfants chéri

A girl always knows when she’s looking her best.

Rockin’ her Pearls in Repose.

Little Bridezilla.

I’m precious.

Party girl.

I’m gonna be a rock star someday.


Gonna get us some candy.

I can keep the hat!

Laid back crazy fun.

Posed but still perfect.

Cute with giggles.

He said strike a pose!

And shoes to match.

I’m so pretty with when will this be over.

Okay, you can take my picture.

Little socialite.

I’m not really happy.

Wait just a minute.

I’ve been sucked into the world of haute couture

It’s the first Wednesday of April, and that means it’s time for an  Insecure Writer’s Support Group post. Follow the link to find more IW’s posts.

The question for this month is an easy one for me to answer.

Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?

I haven’t participated in the A to Z Challenge before, but I am this year. And yes, as the question suggests it can be used to assist in marketing your books. Frankly, I’m in it to have fun.

I’ve assumed my Fashion Maven persona for the course of the challenge and am blogging about the great fashion designers A to Z. As I responded to one commenter, I didn’t know I enjoyed fashion this much until I started the Fashion Maven of the Future column. Actually, it all began with a  Pinterest board about influences on Selina Shirley, fashion designer in Maon: Marshal of Tallav.

Oh, look there’s a book tie in. But it’s gone beyond that. I had to split Selina’s fashion boards into multiple topics, because Pinterest keeps sending me fashion pins and I’m on a fashon mag’s newsletter list…I’ve been sucked into the world of haute couture and I’m having a blast.

The Humble Sleeve Deserves a New Look – Fashion Maven

You were perhaps worried that I, your Fashion Maven of the Future, would neglect my Wednesday column with all I’m doing for the A to Z Challenge. Never fear. Fashion is my heart, my soul, and sharing with you all I know of the inspirations that lead to that greatest of fashion geniuses, Selina Shirley, is my gift to you dear readers.

This week I was overcome by one aspect found on most dresses, shirts, and jackets. Though not all.

The sleeve. Cannot we not hope that more will be done with the humble sleeve. That today’s designers will take note of the beauty and refinement that once was the province of the lowly sleeve. See what I mean in the images I’ve chosen to share with you.
