Moms of budding fashionistas, rejoice. Quality time together can now translate into quality clothes (and I don'??t mean with a trip to the mall). With you as her assistant in the "design studio," online fashion sites give your little girl the ability to let her inner designer shine.

If your daughter is like mine, she has her own big ideas. Especially when it comes to clothes. When she was an infant, she wouldn'??t wear anything with a collar.

However, her fashion sense is actually quite intriguing--pairing tutus under denim skirts, adding just the right flourish to a tank with an iron-on flower, even a not-so-far-off blend of two patterned pieces. Color mama proud.
