    So, my niece recently showed me what she is planning to wear to my wedding. My sister and I definitely have different ideas of what is appropriate or cute for that matter and this is one of those instances. My niece is NOT a girly girl. She likes skulls, tattoo printed clothes, big baggy boys pants. She's 13, about 5'6" and not a stick figure. The dress my sister got for her is tiny... really tiny. It has thin spagetti straps and it pretty short. Its not really flattering for her body. I know she would like to wear something different and to be honest the dress is a little too small and she still has 2 months to grow! So, I'd like to try to find her something else to wear and buy it for her. Something more her style. I tried googling tshirt dresses, tattoo printed dresses and didn't really come up with anything. So, since I know some of you can find anything... I'm asking for help. In the end, I really dont care what she wears as long as she's happy. I just know she is not totally comfortable in this dress and since I'm not a huge fan of it either I thought I'd look for an alternative. I will say that I'm not afriad of it having a print on it that most people wouldn't think to wear to a wedding. I'd really like to find something that suits her taste and is somewhat appropriate for our casual beach wedding. TIA!

          I agree with DallasAshli. I love Francescas-I am addicted. You could also try anthropolgie.com They have hip funky dresses and clothes.

              Thanks girls! I found atleast one dress at each of those sites that I like. I can't believe I didn't think of Hot Topic or Forever 21. I like that dress with the blue hearts that you posted. I'll probably sit down with my niece and see what she thinks. There also one on the Urban Outfitters site that I love! Thank you!

                I'd say let her choose something, then you KNOW she'll be happy lol 13yo's can be finnicky, and what was cool yesterday is totally lame today lol I'd say tell her to choose a few and then you can narrow down which one you'll get :)

                  The one with the blue hearts was my favorite....I showed it to my little sister, who is 16, and she isn't a girlie girl...and she said she would wear it. She liked the fact that black was the background color and the hearts were blue. She said she probably wouldhn't like it if it had been blue with black hearts. So Good Luck and be sure to post what your niece picks out!
