I feel a little rant welling up inside of me. What is up with flower girl dresses? Why is it so necessary to dress little girls up like women? What is wrong with these people?
Now, I may not be the most conservative person, but this is one place where I am ultra-conservative. I believe that little girls should dress like little girls. No need to rush their developmental process by putting them in slinky, spaghetti strapped, v-necked numbers. I feel like role models like Miley Cyrus and Brittany Spears are rushing girls' mental image of what they should look and act like, and I don't think that's a good thing.
Here's a sampling of what I found by clicking the first link that popped up when I google searched "Flower girl dresses"
I did not go searching hard for *ehm* horrible images... This is what is really out there! (I'm not going to even credit these images-- they don't deserve it)
What happened to sweet traditional little girl dresses? Maybe like this from Smitherman and Barnwell:
or this from the Briar Patch? (which is the only dress with any sleeves that was worth posting)
Ultimately, it will be up to my sister and her kids to decide what they want to wear, but I don't think it'll be easy finding something appropriate. I wish them luck! (and am happy to help)
