My daughter is 14 and in the 7th grade. She was adopted from another country 5 years ago and we held her back a year in school so she could learn English. She is a great student now, but I think she feels like she's older so she assumes she can dress older than her peers. She's overly obsessed with makeup and fashion. She recently used gift cards from Christmas and birthdays to buy $180 worth of makeup from Target. I blew a gasket! We tell her all the time to take makeup off her face and have taken the majority away from her. Now she has a dance party to attend on Friday and she emailed me a pic of the dress she likes. It looks like it came out of Kim Kardashian's closet. Hoochie mama all the way. She doesn't understand that she would be the talk of the party were she to wear that. I think she thinks she's getting stiletto heels to wear too. I have an older daughter so I've been through this before, but she never pushed the "sexiness" factor. Where can we shop for clothes that are appropriate for her? Everywhere I go it's skin tight clothing and five inch heels.
