This year, my daughter’s final exam was to do a report on something special to them. Most of the girls did them on animals, or toys or figures from history. My you know Brandy. She loves to talk about fashion and style. She thinks the E Network is her source for news, for crying out loud. What has happened to my family, guys? I’m pretty sure there used to be smart people in my blood line at some point, but my grandmother watered it down by marrying that idiot from Nepal. Anyway, my girl did a lot of soul searching about things she wanted to know more about. And wouldn’t you know what she finally settled on? Dresses that girls wear to birthdays.
Unbelievable. I can’t believe I’m paying twenty thousand a year on private school for this. It seems like the more money you pay, the less you get. Unless you’re talking about girls birthday dresses. In that case, the more you pay, the more you get. I only know this because I paid close attention to the lecture my girl gave on the subject. Believe me, I was close to livid until I actually listened to her. And the more I did, the more I learned. I’m actually surprised to learn so much about these dresses. I hate to say it, but it’s kind of an interesting topic. I mean, it blew my mind. Especially considering my girl is hardly what you might call “an academic.” Nonetheless, I’m really proud of the way she applied herself and delved into the issue. It shows poise and maturity on her part.
Here’s what I picked up from her. The truth of the matter is, birthday girl dresses as a style haven’t been around for that long. It’s a relatively new phenomena. I guess it started in the late 1990s when girls wanted special dresses to wear to parties. They wanted them to be funky but also comfortable. Stylish but not formal. And once there was demand, supply soon followed. And from there, a cottage industry was born. And the name given to it was obviously, the birthday dress.
Today, the industry leader in girls birthday dresses is a small, but growing company called TwirlyGirl. All of their clothing is fashion forward, and made right here int he United States of America, with an emphasis on quality. There’s no need to waste hard earned money on dry cleaning. You can toss a dress into the wash, then chuck it into the dryer. It’s very simple. Learn more about it here.rls
