Legends from Mom's Closet
My new book! This is a diary of how I spent last summer. Since the rainy weather kept me indoors, I probably read a hundred books! Eventually, curiosity got the best of me and I ended up in my mom's closet. Next thing I know, I'm dressing up like the legends I read about. Finding unique pieces around the house and picking out my mom’s vintage clothes, I came up with the coolest looks. Click below to explore my summer full of vintage!
It all starts with imagination!
Girl Behind It All
I'm Sasha Olsen! I’m so happy to share this project with all of you. If you want to know more about me, well I’m an environmental activist, a ballroom dancer, a bookworm, a pianist, and anything artistic. I’m always finding new hobbies and things to do. This usually ends up in me trying to juggle everything! Especially, when it comes to learning new languages.
This was an unexpected and very pleasant discovery of a book! I’ve always been drawn to children’s books, and am so honored to review this one! I look forward to watching Sasha as she grows and follows what is certain to be a fascinating life path! BRAVO!!
What a wonderful book to read with your daughters. It might inspire them to play make believe and/or to learn about amazing women. I could see a teacher or youth leader reading this book to their group and then having the children pick one of the women to learn more about.
Open up that dress up trunk and become inspired with Sasha as she puts down her books she read about remarkable historical women of the past and becomes them! The fancy hats and dresses, the role modeling of styles from women like Audrey Hepburn and Billie Holiday. This is the girliest of girl books for daughter and Mom written by Sasha herself! She just became her own inspirational woman!

Legends Come Alive!
Want to know how these legends came alive? Check out these videos that show the process of me becoming these iconic women for a day.
It won’t make much sense if you haven’t read the book though, so make sure to do that first. I had so much fun!
