Daddy Steve: It never fails. I get some new clothes for the boys and intend to spend only 10 minutes changing outfits on one...then one of the other boys wants to put on the first boy's outfit and then another boy wants what the second one was wearing and etc., etc.
Before I know it, I've spent a full hour redressing half of them. All in all, not a bad way to spend an hour and we often hit on some great combinations the leave us all feeling absolutely brilliant.
Sasha often gets first crack at new clothes, since he had to spend such a long time wearing pajamas. I recently ordered a new outfit from Ginny of A Passion For Sasha with him in mind. I think the mustard colored corduroy slacks and powder blue shirt really compliment his coloring.
However, this meant that Robin wanted to change into the khaki slacks and white dress shirt (also made by Ginny) that Sasha had been wearing. Outside of Anthony, Robin is probably the most fashion conscious of all the boys and this new (to him) outfit matches his 'preppy style' perfectly. It also pairs especially well with a wonderful wool coat that I bought a while ago (when it comes to coats, we don't get too concerned over which side the buttons are on).
Newcomer Blake (a 1978-1979 Caleb) was quite eager to change out of his yellow sweater and flared trousers. Robin had been wearing the purple and white patterned sweater and blue cords, but we suspected that they would look smashing on Blake.
We were right! The colors in the sweater really compliment his beautiful plum colored lips.
What a handsome trio. What's that? Oh dear...Giancarlo is moaning that he's been wearing the same outfit for simply ages now...
