Like many children, both of my grandchildren get up in the morning and start layering. They often begin with 'regular' clothes (shorts or skirt, a shirt) and as the morning moves along, they add layers: boas, an extra skirt or leggings, gloves, necklaces, ribbons, hats. Each new adornment requires a shift in mannerisms. The blue gloves and purse above prompted an instant "la de da." In The Unfinished Angel (Sept '09), the character of Zola dresses in multiple layers, just like my granddaughter.
