Why It’s Totally Acceptable to Spend More on Girls’ Clothes
September 27, 2011
See that cute floral top my daughter is wearing? It’s actually a dress she used to wear before she was even walking. She’s two and a half now, and it still fits. Only it’s shorter.
That’s the thing about shopping for girl’s clothes. Sure, I buy her tons of stuff, but the clothes out there are so stinkin’ cute, I just can’t help myself. And besides, I can justify the spending because she wears the clothes for a long time.
Her old maxi dresses? They’re mini now and they look just as cute, maybe even more so. Her sweaters and long sleeve tops? They’re 3/4-length sleeve tops. Her pants? She’s still wearing some 12-18 month pants, but now they’re cropped or capris.
So you can see how she really gets the mileage from her clothes. It’s like she has a new outfit every few months. I can’t say the same about my son. Once he outgrows his pants, they don’t turn into cute capris. Nope, they’re just funny-looking high-waters, although now that I think of it, I can probably turn them into shorts if I had a sewing machine.
