Who said that prints shouldn't clash? The rules changed especially when, as Tim Gunn would say, you "make it work." Spring 2010 has a lot of clashing prints. I think this one works especially with hot pink stockings and mint green Mary Janes.
There are two things I consider when I buy clothes for my nieces and nephew (and also all inaanaks):
- They are cute and fashionable, and
- They still look like little kids
Here's another number for my niece:

Why have different flower printed socks with the polka dots? In fashion, it seems, that as you grow older, you tend to be more minimalist with the prints. My nieces just turned one. They should get away with it better when for their age, fashion is supposed to be more fun! (Plus, I take a cue from Strawberry Shortcake...cuteness!)
The boys shouldn't be left out too. I've bought some gifts for my nephew and godson:
|Toku T-Shirt from SM|
|Beverly Hills polo at SM|
The orange polo shirt is just hot. Here's where I get out of my 'kids fashion' philosophy. This shirt is too classic and would add pogi points to an adult if a size were available for them. I just had to get it!
