I wrote about horrible clothing for children last week
Here is a gallery of appalling clothes that readers of the BBC’s website submitted in response to an article there. Tartan, everyone wearing sweaters in the same maroon wool, dressing all the kids the same, capes, ponchos, you name it.
On a more serious note, an Oklahoma newspaper had an article about dressing kids so they aren’t picked on. One seventh grade boy doesn’t want to go to school because he’s dressed in second hand clothes, the only ones his mother can afford.
He said “It was horrible. I didn’t think the day would ever end. The kids just kept picking on me, laughing about my clothes, and all I wanted was to go home. I don’t want to go back to school because I don’t have the right clothes and that’s all that matters to the other kids, having the right clothes.”
Now to girls’ clothes. These House of Dereon ads had my eyeballs rotating in astonishment. This is the fashion line owned by Beyonce Knowles and her mother, Tina. Are these kids or Bratz dolls? Not fashion. Not fun. Not on my kid – ever!
