Once there was a little girl who complained she had nothing to wear. Everything was too hot, too ugly, too bedazzled, too babyish, or just too too.
One day while browsing her favorite shop, Twixt, she happened upon a new line of clothes designed by the store’s owner.
There were shifts in pink and turquoise, tunics in geometric prints and ikats, and comfy drawstring pants with contrast trim.
One after another she tried them on, tossing a crinkle scarf with pom-poms over her shoulders and slipping in and out of brilliant leather sandals in every color of the rainbow.
And they fit juuust right.
