My dd actually prefers the boys dept., and it's fine with me right now. She will not wear the short-shorts they are showing, and I don't feel like I should push her to do so! I buy her the brighter colors.

Lands' End and L.L. Bean makes more reasonable girls clothes in terms of style, but I know they can be pricey. The do have some lines that are 2-for-something that are reasonable, as well as overstock sales.

Happy shopping!

I totally agree. I've been looking for some new shorts for my almost 11 year old and can't find anything except Daisy Duke shorts or ones with vulgar sayings across the butt. No way is my dd wearing a pair of shorts that says HOTTIE across her rear end!

I looked at several stores in the mall when we out Thursday and couldn't find one decent pair of shorts for her. I did see some satin type longer ones at Walmart so she may have to settle for those or maybe go to the boys dept. for some denim ones.
