A Small Girls Experiment- Harajuku Fragrances
Day 5: BABY 1/14/11
“Nobody puts baby in the corner.” Yeah. We were particularly excited about this fragrance, as the tester vial was pink, which is our favorite color, and we think babies are the coolest. Nothing like letting your inner child out through scent and style.
Bianca- I guess when people think about baby girls they think of the color baby pink, since the world has made it the norm to welcome baby girls in a shower of pink bows and lace. This, and the realization that babies wear onesies, was the basis of my outfit. I too love onesies. I wore a super-comfortable torn up Barney’s sweater, akin to a super-comfortable beloved baby blanky torn up by overuse and lots of baby adventures. Top it off with a giant bow necklace, and I’m channeling my inner… mallory
Mallory- Oddly enough, today was the one day that I wasn’t dressed like a baby. So I came equipped with some of my everyday accessories and just put them all on at once. Voila: Baby extraordinaire! Accents include: Barbie hairclips, the Hello Kitty watch I got in a Happy Meal two years ago, a heart-shaped locket featured a bedazzled kitten, and a velcro ‘handholder’ ‘bracelet’ used to leash babies to their parents. OH, and, why yes, that is a brooch I’m wearing with a framed baby photo. of myself. also bedazzled.
Bianca- This scent was definitely the sweetest. It reminded me of candy… which babies shouldn’t eat, but girls who want to smell sweet should definitely try to smell like. I wonder if any boys smiled at Mallory when she was wearing this fragrance? I know my boy would enjoy it more than when I usually wear his old spice.
Mallory- Gwen Stefani said this fragrance was the hardest to nail and took weeks of tinkering to make just right. It’s supposed to have baby powder undertones, but that’s a detriment to the scent, which smells much more floral and fruity: somewhere half-way between potpurri and candied apples.
Note: We’re making weird faces in our photos because apparently that’s what babies do.
