Help me find an outfit for my 13yo niece

Recommended Posts

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!

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! smile159.gif

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!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
