“Unbearably trampy back-to-school clothes.”
There is an incredible article by Emily Yoffe about the challenges of buying clothes for tween girls. (glad to see that others have issues with many of the clothes, including those with all the words on the butt, for young ladies…)
My favorite part was in the last two paragraphs….
"Mom, I’m 11!" she said. "I’m not Harriet Miers!"
She (child of Washington that she is) had given me a useful parameter of ‘tween fashion. While you don’t want your daughter to look like Britney Spears, she doesn’t want to look like a failed Supreme Court nominee from the Bush administration. In between those two poles, if you have patience and good arch support, you can find enough nice stuff.
Preach it sister, preach it….
