Don't get me wrong, I am not making my daughter wear bonnets and ankle-length dresses.
However, even the way some of her friends dress (in the FIRST GRADE!) seems a bit much to me.
LOL! I would, but my mother would drive me crazy over it. (The girls had better hope OldTax-lady lasts until they leave home :-).
But seriously, I agree with you 100%. Elementary-school girls are walking around (in this weather, too!) in what looks like street-walker outfits.
My husband bought our girls some shorts at Target last spring, and didn't realize until they put them on that they showed *everything*. We'll have to try on every single piece of clothing in advance this year. I don't know where we'll find ordinary shorts for the girls; the ones I get at J.C. Penney don't come in children's sizes.
It IS a bit much and...it's the parents who buy the clothing. From day one tell the kids what kind of clothing is acceptable and that's the way it is. Kids can dress fashionable and be modest. Maybe parents should take up sewing and MAKE their kids clothes. Why in the world would you want to put your hard earned money into someone else's pocket who are just exploiting children anyway???? It's ludicrous and yet the solution is soooooooo simple. Don't buy it.
