Zinashi has been dressing herself for awhile now. There just came a point at which I felt that arguing about what she should wear was pointless, and that if she wanted to wear eleven layers and have none of it match that well, then it was not only better than arguing, but also pretty entertaining. Plus, there's something about her that makes it all seem so natural, as if pulling knee socks up over leggings is the right thing to do, and perhaps more of us should try it. And on that same note, why shouldn't those knee socks be worn with sandals? If there's not snow on the ground, sandals are the obvious choice. You can see more of the sock that way, you know.
Now she is choosing her own hairstyles, too. While she will sometimes entertain a suggestion from me when she is having trouble deciding, mostly she has a fixed idea of what she wants, and I am expected to execute it properly. That doesn't always work out, but I am trying. Because really, she looks fabulous when she wears things the way she wants to, and who am I to get in the way of that? I can only encourage it.
