17. That's BS
I shop for my friend's two little girls all the time and find beautiful clothes that are friggin' age appropriate. I've heard that "that's all I can find" crap before. A co-worker would dress her little girl like she was headed to a club (the kid was 3-5). Then she'd show pics to all of us and beam about how "grown-up" her little girl looked in that halter top!! Thankfully, her husband put his foot down when she wanted to put the kid in pageants. My co-worker pouted for about a month.

You are correct that schools need to be more forceful. The parents are the ones buying this crap, so I don't have much hope for them. In fact, our local MS and HS revised their dress code last year and several parents went ballistic.
