I have been given the unenviable task of helping my 12 yr old niece find something to wear to DD's christening and I don't know where to start. She is quite a tomboy, not into dresses but is getting into fashion as she's now at senior school. She's fairly tall and of average build.
What sort of shops are best for this age group??? My DC are still firmly in Boden with Monsoon for parties so I really don't know where to begin. Am thinking classic with a nod to trend..... help!
Oh you poor thing: 12 year old girls are the pits! My 12 year old is upstairs sulking (we are going to a party in 5 minutes) because I have made her put on clean jeans and a pretty top instead of her skanky old skinnies.
Can she wear a ladies' 6 or 8 yet, because that will then open up the court a fair bit and make places like Topshop or Warehouse possible.
Thanks guys! I love the little M&S skirt but there is no way she would wear it!! Cybil is spot on that she is in the tunics and leggings brigade. She would def fit into a 6 or 8 as she is quite tall and not too skinny. I think that as Laurie says, it's avoiding the young hooker stuff!!
I like this in black - thought it would look nice with leggings. Am I way off???
The black one has a pattern too - she has very long, very beautiful red hair so I thought it might look nice. Liking the idea of gold sandals and/or coloured leggings... Christening is in September so weather could be iffy.
