We were talking about beehives and boat shoes with my Dad. My Dad is so cute; he left the living room for about ten minutes and returned with his Sperry Boat Shoes circa 1983, complete with beehive laces. It didn't do much for the beehive case for Alexia.
But when we went to J. Crew a few days later, every single pair of Sperry Top Siders had laces with beehives. Now, she couldn't wait to get home to get her beehives. "You know Mom, if J. Crew does it, it's cool." Words of wisdom from a 10 year old.

By the way, now Alexia says that she wants pink Sperry Top Siders. I've created a fashion monster...and it's so much fun!
