Hey she picked it out not me ((pics*)

so my 8 year old is turning 9 in two weeks shes having a dinner party the day of her birthday and i asked her what she wanted to wear she said a dress so we were looking online for a dress and we came across this one:


she told me this is the one she me its cute not ugly at all and if she does wear it i was going to straightening her hair and then put some curls in it..but i guess my problem is dressing a soon to be 9 year old to grown i i mean i would never dress my daughters skanky but what i might think is cute probably might be considered inappropriate so what doe you think of this dress? is it to much for someone who is turning 9?

  • I think for a party dress it's fine. As long as you aren't planning on putting her in 3 layers of make up and high heels... It's cute. Very Shirley Temple.

  • You asked her what she wanted, she wants that dress. It's not like you're forcing her to wear it. It's a cute dress btw.

  • I think so. As soon as I saw the dress I thought of the show where moms put there daughters in beauty pageants. Can't remember the name. But I agree, it is a beautiful dress. Maybe when she goes to the prom :)

  • I think it's cute, but a little much if you aren't doing something REALLY fancy, or having a dress up party. I would put tights under it, or leggings to tone down the fanciness, but that's just me.

  • I think it's cute, especially for a party dress. If that flower near the shoulder comes off, you could always add a white cardigan or something.

  • I would do white tights with black Patton Mary Janes.
