I was so excited today when I got an email from Jennifer that my virtual outfits had arrived!!  I had her put together 5  outfits fro my daughter. 

Here’s a little back story on my daughter.  Up until 3 years of age I had complete control over what she wore.  Then on her 4th birthday she woke up SO excited and said “Now I can stand up when I use the bathroom”.  Obviously, overnight she gained some sort of gender confusion.  She has one older brother and two younger ones.  SHE IS MY ONLY GIRL  and she wishes she was a boy.  Church, dining out, etc. borders on WWIII on what she will wear.  She’d prefer jerseys and on more than one occasion I have had to tell her to stop wearing her brothers underwear. 

This is what she went as for Halloween this past year…

She wore her brother’s football uniform, BUT I made her wear a braid and a red ribbon.  Don’t get me wrong, I understand the tomboy thing, but can’t you still wear girl clothes and play sports?  Needless to say, she does not get this characteristic from her mother!!

I called in reinforcements and here is what Jennifer came up with for my daughter…

What I love is that she has used the pieces to mix and match, that is definitely my weakness.  I get in a rut and wear the same clothing combination over and over.  If you have not found Style Your Life blog you need to go take a look.  She links all her choices to the websites they come from.

Plus, virtual outfits are $5 each!!   She sends you a questionnaire to fill out and goes based on your likes, dislikes, what your need the out fits for, etc.  Based on my questionnaire she did really well, no glitter, rhinestones and not a lot of pink.  In my opinion it was money well spent.

PS.  Here’s a link to Jennifer’s post on the outfits, all the links are posted under each pic.

Very cool! I really love the last outfit! I grew up with 2 brothers and I just wanted to be 'one of the boys' too when I was young. Around high school I grew out of that and now I'm the girly girl :)

My daughter will be 5 in May, and she is the same. Right now, I'm looking at her and she's wearing soccer shorts, a t-shirt, and her brother's hand-me-down sweatshirt (with a football on it.) Like you, I get the TomBoy thing and I respect it. (I'd rather have a tomboy than a princess any day!) but I'd love for her to embrace a little bit of her feminine side.

I keep subtly telling her about heros like Joarn of Arc and Amelia Earhart, and even Wonder Woman. I'm tryin'

p.s. You'll have to let us know what your daughter thinks!
