ExSIL askesd if she could take my DDs (11 & 13) out shopping since she never got them anything for their birthdays. Well they come back with CRAP!
DD#1 got A NEON yellow tank top that is from the WOMEN's section not girls (therefore too big & oh did they try anything on? NOPE). A Hiroshuko (sp?) top that looks like a night shirt- supposedly the tank is for under it. Oh & she got the shirt to go with her neon pink sunglasses. I told her she isn't suppose to get clothes to match the accessories- you get accessories to match the clothes.
DD#2 got hot pink jeans. okay- not too bad because dress code at school says no BLUE jeans. We got clarification & the dress code does not say no denim just no BLUE jeans. Ok. Well 1 of the shirts she got to go with it is a Monster High shirt (which she KNOWS how I feel about that) & it's a black tee shirt with the long sleeves that look like a layered shirt. Anyway the sleeves are pink & white striped- the pink doesn't match ANYTHING she already has! Not even the pink jeans she just got! But she did get a black Mickey Mouse shirt with pink rhinestones that do match- but she will only be able to wear it on the weekend because of school dress code.
It irritates me to no end that the girls complained about not having enough dress code appropriate clothes & yet they got crap clothes that don't go with anything they have & they can't wear to school!
Does anyone else have issues with their kids clothing choice? Especially the younger teens?
