Shop Talk Six: Back-to-School Must-Haves for Tween Girls

It's that time of year when you will be starting to see a major change at your local retailers.  They will be doing a 180, switching their focus from summer vacation to back-to-school.  Personally, I think it is much easier to shop for clothing and school gear for boys than it is for girls, especially for tween-age girls.  That is a special age when they are still children and still like things that are girly and cute . . . but not too cutesie.  All that cutesie stuff is for little girls, right?
