I recently read a news story about a 5 year old girl who wrote Gap a letter saying she was unhappy with all the “pink and princess and stuff like that.” A girl after my own heart! If you follow me on Snapchat (username: joannealma) then you’ve witness my many rants regarding the over-abundance of pink, sequins and sparkle in the girls section. Um, can young girls get more options? Not every little girl wants to be a princess?! Well mine does but that’s not the point. My point is that I can never find girl clothes that offers an empowering message. All Remy gets is, “When I grow up I’m going to be a princess,” or “Diva in the making.” What message is the fashion industry making by limiting what we want our FUTURE LEADERS to become? So I’ve scoured the web to bring my little girl, and your little girl, a few shops that do offer more options and empowering messages to wear across their chests.
