I have a 4th grader and a 1st grader. For the most part, all the kids they know dress like, well, kids. Tshirts featuring either a superhero or a cartoon character, jeans with grass stains, untied sneakers. I know there are prepubescent fashion plates out there, but you never catch them playing outside anyhow.

Today, dropping them off for the bus, I saw two fourth (possibly fifth) grade girls in full retro Mall Punk. Leggings, plaid minis, hoodies, and military caps, and both were in converse high tops. My first thought: "Damn it, that's how I wanted to dress when I was that age, and my parents wouldn't LET me." Unfortunately, this was followed hard upon by some mental math, confirming that I was their age over 20 years ago.

How'm I supposed to rock the punk-femme + hat when it's sold in Limited, Too?
