The first day of school is fast approaching!  Does your child have a fashion wish list?  Or do the parents care more about the outfits?  Or are you in a school that requires a uniform?  No matter what, this is the time of year to shop.  There is nothing like shopping for that special fist day of school outfit.  Those pictures will live on forever on social media and scrapbooks.  Those sparkling new sneakers that are just waiting to run and have fun.  Other must haves may include a trendy backpack and the hot accessories to decorate it.  The array of choices in the children's department can be intimidating, especially when your little fashion plate claims she needs everything.  Before you go shopping, have a fashion show at home.  This will determine  what needs to be replaced.
