can you spot the inspiration?


i will give you a hint. it was big. it was purple. it was fringed. and apparently, it was the spirit of '76...1976. the year of our poncho. modeled above by the fierce, fa-lawless and fabulous alicia, sister of chrissy and mother of chloe. in addition to humiliating innocent children, this garment had the power to whip armies of cub scouts into a patriotic frenzy.

fast forward to the year of our poncho 2008. to commemorate the first birthday of her beloved niece chloe, aunt chrissy wishes to inflict similar violet hues of ponchodom. this despite the fact that chrissy herself had suffered the identical armless affliction of the fringed purple poncho. (i believe that is aunt chrissy herself, flanking her sister in head-to-toe red.)

yours truly was commissioned to whip up a version for the next generation. forgive me baby chloe.

That photo is awesome! And one of the perks of having babies is that they can't protest when you dress them in funny outfits. ; )

That really is a fantastic photograph. For what I'm assuming is a snapshot the composition is beautiful...or maybe I just like the poncho and her perfect attitude.
