Kourtney Kardashian: Penelope Wears Mason’s Hand-Me-Downs

Kourtney Kardashian is a big fan of sharing, especially when it comes to her children’s clothing.
Even though her kids’ styles are very different (Mason, 4, is hip and Penelope, 19 months, is more girlie), the designer has no problem dressing up her youngest in her older brother’s hand-me-downs.
“I kept a lot of Mason’s clothes, like little blazers and loafers and I’ve used them on Penelope,” Kardashian told reporters at a tea party on Monday at N.Y.C.’s Soho House to celebrate her new baby line, Kardashian Kids, sold at Babies ‘R Us.
“I’ve even done a full suit for a full menswear look, like a Saint Laurent look.”
Although she has a lot of input on what Penelope wears, the reality star readily admits she doesn’t have a lot of say when it comes to her son.
“He loves to get himself dressed every day and he likes to come out and show us his outfit. And we’re not allowed to have an opinion on any of it,” she explains.
But that doesn’t mean she’s above using tricks.
“Sometimes I’ll try to sway him a little bit. The other day, one of his friends had on a blazer and I said, ‘Remember your friend who wore the blazer,’ and he’s like ‘ Oh yeah,’ and then he’s into it. But it just worked the one time.”
So does her boyfriend Scott Disick get to weigh in on the kids’s fashions?
“He definitely has more say so when we’re dressing Mason over Penelope,” Kardashian shares. “He’s not into bikinis for little girls. But I am.”
Mini two-pieces aren’t the only thing that puts the mom-of-two at odds with her family. Her attachment parenting style also raises eyebrows within the Kardashian clan.
“It’s just what came naturally to me. My family definitely all think I’m insane for having [the kids] in the bed and breastfeeding them for forever. But I couldn’t care less.”
