  • Just my two cents but don't get caught up in "fads". You can never keep up and it costs a silly amount of money. Just make sure she has nice clothes, decent school supplies and lots of love.

  • Really anything is IN! LOL! My granddaughter is 9, she is into anything bright, mismatched and fun. I have actually seen bundles of socks in the stores that are purposely mismatched. I bought some for both of the girls today actually. She loves everything in Justice. I can find some of their clothing in TJ Maxx too.

  • we shop at Justice (for bday and Christmas), Crazy 8 and Target and Old navy

    but I think I would ask her where she likes to shop, if she isn't sure I would use Target and such for normal stuff and Justice for special stuff its sort of expensive even when they have a sale.

    Crazy 8 usually has some pretty good deals

  • Thanks everyone for the help. The only problem I am having is she is coming from Alaska (my old home) to Oregon. I guess instead of a parka, we need fashionable rain gear.
