". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Look What I Found!

It's for my daughter and it looks adorable on her. I stumbled on it yesterday in the junior department at Target. My photo doesn't really do it justice. Here's a better one:


If you are a mother of a pre-teen or teenage girl, you know that finding modest, pretty, feminine clothing for your daughter is not easy these days. My daughter is only 12 but is tall for her age and is already making the transition from girls' to junior sizes. It is frustrating trying to shop for her in the current fashion climate, because these days the young women's dress racks seem littered with things like this . . .


. . . and this.

They are either too revealing or downright ugly. So I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to discover what I would describe as simply a pretty, classic dress. It is from the Isaac Mizrahi line and only cost $34.99.

Thank you, Target!

Great find. And super stylish.

That has been the difficulty the past ten years. Finding clothes that are modest and pretty, but don't leave us looking like refugees from the cover of The Teaching Home. :)

My daughter is so petite she is not ready to leave the girls sizes yet. When we get there I'll be feeling the same frustrations. I'm hoping the local vintage store where I've bought some formal wear will be able to help with every day clothes too.
