Anyone who has shopped for little girls’ clothes knows there are only a few options out there, namely short, tight, and pastel. And, we know this is a wild concept, but not all girls like wearing clothes with hearts, flowers, and princesses on them.

Sharon Choksi, founder Girls Will Be, decided to do something about the lack of options for girls. She said the inspiration for her new line of clothing, came from her daughter and niece, Maya and Grace, who wanted to wear clothing that wasn’t frilly, “nothing with bows” and absolutely “NO sparkles.” They were interested in “climbing trees, building LEGO creations, and playing with cars and trucks,” Choksi said.

Now, wouldn't that be fun?

Sure, I played with dolls and Barbie’s sometimes, but it didn’t mean I wanted to be one.
Amen and amen.
I'm curious to see what they'll do with swimsuits.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

I didn't have much trouble finding suitable clothes for my pre teen daughter.  It certainly became much harder to find them when she became a teenager and later, a young lady.  Fortunately, she developed an amazing talent to dig stock and find elegant, feminine and modest clothing.

That's great!  I did have some trouble, especially after we switched from church consignment sales to stores.  There were more than just selection issues, though.  But I'm still glad this business exists for others' sake.  :)
