My girls love dress up. They are 9, 7, and 3. Even when their friends come over they want to play. My daughter is tiny and can still were all the store little kid finds but she is 9 and really should be wearing bigger. So her friends that are 9 and 10 can't fit in those dresses. I have found great dress up stuff at the good will and garage sales. I buy prom dresses and flower girl dresses. Even some fun suits,overalls, halloween costumes, ties, shoes, etc....stains dont bother me or even the discounted things that have a tear. The girls can wear them and play hard and i am not fretting over the money i spent.
