Skimpy Fashion for Preteens - UGH!
I took my 11 year old shopping yesterday to find shorts to match our unusually warm weather for March. We headed to our usual favorite place, Kohls, 'cause hey - I had a 30% off coupon!
We headed to the Juniors section, and as we walked I gave K the usual talk about nothing too short, we want to be modest, etc. You guys know the talk, don't ya?
Well, we were met with rack after rack of short shorts, tank tops, camis and see through blouses and t-shirts.
Why does the fashion industry want to dress our pre-teen girls like prostitutes? Seriously. I just don't understand the mentality that goes into the design of these clothes.
Is anyone else with me? Do you know of any specific store chains that are known for their fashionable yet modest clothing for preteens? Forget the coupon, I just want some shorts that cover her behind!!
