Ok so I'm not one that really worries about fashion. But at least my cloths aren't 20 yrs old and they do match. Now, my daughter on the other hand is a fashion disaster if I let her have her way. I really don't know how to instill good fashion sense into her when its not something I really worried about either. She will dress in a tshirt and pants and then put a skirt over it. Today she tried to wear snow boots with a long skirt. Her sitter gave her bows that had to be made in the 80's. I'm talking great big bows as big as her head and she wants to wear these to school. Kids can be so mean I'm just trying to save her a little heartache. What can I do? I'm not about to go out and buy her designer cloths. I can't afford that. But she can try to dress better. I try to let her pick her cloths. I don't want to squash her say in it. but she chooses the oddest combinations?

I really don't think its wise to push your fashion sense on her. She seems to have her own. I actually admire her for wanting to wear things the other kids arent doing. I'm sure she's a smart girl and realizes its not what everyone else has one, yet she still wants to do it. Individualism is a RAREITY today and it should really be celebrated, not squashed into being everyone else. You are her mom and of course you'll do what you feel. But I really think you should take a back seat on this one. Hope you find something that truly works for her.
