Dress Like a Girl


Have you heard all the rules about what to wear when?  Do you know when to pull out the crisp white suit or the flowing black gown?

This delightful diverse group of friends - all girls-gathered for a slumber party,  are exploring the possibilities of what it means to be a girl and dress for it.  A great trip into the potential careers that girls can aspire to partnered with a twist on the world of fashion that will fit every future occasion.

"On hot summer days the look is crisp white on land or at sea or on along flight.   White is a look you can manage with grace as you soar in a rocket ship through outer space!"

These girls imagine all the things they can grow up to do and to be and they know just what to wear - could be red or maybe blue.  The rules have changed and the fashion explosion has begun.  Dress like a girl means finding your own style in clothes and careers.

Times have changed and the old definitions and rules about what it means to be girl are gone.  This is a fun celebration of all the different "outfits" that await every girl.

What does it mean to dress like a girl?

Many will tell you in this big, wide world

that there are strict rules that must be addressed,

rules you will need when looking your best.

But when you are given these rules to obey,

the secret is heeding them—in your own way.---from the publisher
