With the holidays coming up, I have begun my yearly search for the perfect dress for Ciara.
Every year, she gets a new Christmas dress.
Most years, they are pretty fancy: velvet, taffeta, etc.
My absolute favorite dress was a more casual dress.
It was the snowflake dress from Hanna Andersson.
Of course, they don't make it anymore.
(If anyone from Hanna Andersson is reading this, BRING BACK THE SNOWFLAKE DRESS!)
It was a great dress for the holidays.
Since they don't carry it anymore, I am stuck with searching for something new.
During my search, I found myself on etsy.com.
Every dress that I liked was for girls that are 5 years or younger.
Is it just me, or is it impossible to find cute and APPROPRIATE clothes for the 8-11 year old girl?
For some reason, 8 seems to be when clothing makers start to make clothes that just seem a little too mature (or just plain trashy).
My 8 year old is still a little girl, and I will continue to dress her that way.
She still loves for everything to match.
She also still loves dresses.
If anyone can suggest a place to get a cute, casual (and yet still unique) dress, let me know!
I may see if eBay has any of the old snowflake dresses.
