I thought about it as I shopped with my friend at a local consignment shop, and we noticed that the clothing could fit her 10-year old daughter. I thought about it when I met with my young friends a few weeks ago (see Styling with Mel, Teen Talk). They were contemplating whether some teens are dressing too old for their age. And I thought about it as I read an article in Sunday’s New York Times, written by Cathy Horyn (a favorite writer, by the way). The article addressed women’s love of platform shoes. Her concern?
