We’re pretty confident the headline you just read pretty much tells you everything you need to know about what’s to come. Just in case you’re still unclear, however, here’s a primer: Every day during New York Fashion Week, we decided to ask a real person—i.e., one that doesn’t work in or follow fashion—to share their thoughts on a particular look from any given runway show.
First up: Kayla Sponaugle, the 7-year-old niece of StyleCaster’s managing editor. We emailed Kayla a look from Creatures of the Wind Spring 2014, and here’s what she had to say about it.
Hi Kayla! What do you think of this outfit?
I like it. The skirt has, um, details and the shirt perfectly matches with the shoes. The skirt looks okay. It sort of looks like mixed-up flowers.
What’s a Creature of the Wind?
Birds and stuff.
Where do you think this girl is going?
Well, the shirt kind of looks like a bowling ball shirt, so I think she’s heading to the bowling ball alley.
What would you add to the outfit from your own closet to make it better?
If I had my ears pierced right now, I’d put on sparkly silver earrings, a sparkly silver necklace, and a sparkly silver bracelet to go with it all. Also, I have blue, purple, and grey sparkly nail polish.
How would you make this outfit better on the model?
We could put a silver sparkly headband with a blue bow on it in her hair.
What type of fashion is your favorite?
I wear my Crocs shoes all the time but that doesn’t mean that I love them. There’s actually a shirt that I got for Christmas that I like. It’s a brown long-sleeved shirt with a pink sparkly horse on it. I like it because it has sparkles and I like horses. I mean, like, horses may not be my favorite animal—I don’t know what is my favorite animal, but I do like horses.
Would you ever wear this outfit? Why?
If it was in my size. I like the sparkles.
