I am one of the most plain people on the planet. When my ODD was born I revolted against the system! NO PINK!!! She rocked every color but pink and some boys clothes as well. Now at 11 almost 12 she is such a princess diva. She loves sparkle and I never not once put it on her. She loves zebra print. She has a fashion sense that I never have had or will have and she is cute as a button. I will not allow writing on her bum and I do require shorts to be a certain length (it is hard her legs are seriously like a mile long) I do allow tank tops but they must be tasteful if that can happen.
I will say she loves the dirt. She rides on the four wheeler and runs in the mud. She is always into something outside. She loves soccer and plays it with an undying love.
I agree with everyone that manufacturers are creating a young diva line of clothing but just because you fight doesnt mean you wont get one anyway. I love her though DIVA and all!

Ageeed!

My DD looks beautiful in anything but she loves to get dolled up so we go for it. And she loves her bows although I'll say I hate those HUGE ones. I don't see anything wrong with having clothes that they I would prefer DD not to get dirty. I always make sure DD has plenty in each "category" as I call it...church clothes, nicer clothes, regular clothes, clothes she can roll in mud in and I won't care. DD has never been a roll in the dirt type kid so I guess we are a good fit for each other lol

My dd won't wear anything innapropriate, tight, writing on the butt, etc. but, imo forcing them to be the opposite of these societal norm is just as bad as forcing them to be a frilly princess. My girls love to dress up, hair bows, glitter, etc. but they will also play outside, climb trees, get muddy etc with the best of em. To me its about balance and allowing them to be themselves.

DD wears a lot of traditionally "boyish" stuff/characters/colors, but sometimes they will be the "girly" version of a stereotypically boy thing or a mix of "boy" and "girl" stuff. To me, cute is cute and I wouldn't put a boy OR a girl in floofy all pink. The following is pretty much how my DD dresses. We like to keep it simple, bright and fun. It's all about being able to play and move! If she really wants some (appropriate) princess-y dress up stuff when she is older for playing, I won't stop her.

I completely agree! I had someone tell me they won't let their daughter wear pink or be girly because they want her to know she can be whatever she wants. (Except for be girly or wear pink, I guess.) Lol. I don't get it. I was a HUGE tomboy growing up, I still have no sense of fashion, but my girls like wearing dresses and playing dress up, but they are down with trucks and mud, too. I want them to be who they are. Plus, they can change as they get older.

Old Navy! I actually bought the puppy one (and another pink puppy one) before we knew what we were having and she wore both!

Dd wears huge bows and loves them ! In fact she will not leave the house without a bow or headband on. She has clothes that she can't get dirty but she also has clothes that she can do whatever in. I don't see the big deal with her having nice clothes that I would like to keep looking nice. We also do a lot of complete outfits where everything matches from head to toe along with a ton of handmade clothing. I spend a decent amount of money on her wardrobe because I can't stand how "sexed up "most store bought clothing is in her size. We have strict modesty rules in our household so words on the behind and tight fitting clothing are not allowed so I'll agree with you there but not so much on the bow and nice clothing.

I can't stand baby sexy (don't like it on grownup ladies either, LOL), but I loooove foofy girlie girlie! I don't consider it bowing to societal pressure, I consider it personal preference, and there's nothing wrong with that!

Hmmmmmm the hookers down my way don't wear big bows in their hair. Wonder if that's a regional thing :headscratch:
