My 5yo daughter went shopping with her Dad and when he came back he said we will have to get rid of the dress she was wearing. I assumed it was because the dress was getting a bit small, but when he told me about what happened I was shocked.
As they were walking through the aisles doing grocery shopping, a woman walking past stopped and scoffed in disgust before saying “wearing leopard print at the age of what, like 5?” She continued saying something under her breath as she shook her head and walked away.
My daughter received this dress as a present from her 72yo Nan. It never once crossed my mind that it would be inappropriate for a child to wear, I actually think it is a beautiful dress. It was bought from Best n Less and comes in a range of sizes to fit children of all ages.
I just wanted to get the opinion of others. Is there is an appropriate age to start wearing certain prints on clothing, or maybe they just encountered a person having a miserable day..?
