Jamie Lynn Spears' 5-Year-Old Daughter Wears Dolce & Gabbana

Eye Roll 15

There's just something about kids in expensive designer clothing that gets my dander up. It's bad enough that they're going to grow out of the expensive duds in no time -- of course, if you can afford it, you're probably not worried about that. But there's already so much materialism in the world -- so much "If you wear this, smell like this, buy this, and drive this, you'll be happy" that I hate seeing that mentality foisted on kids at such a young age. So I guess that's why when I see Jamie Lynn Spears' 5-year-old daughter wearing Dolce & Gabbana, and her mom seemingly quite proud of this achievement, that I want to hurl instead of squeal.

Jamie Lynn posted a pic of her toddler, Maddie, wearing the designer outfit for her fifth birthday, and captioned it:

BirtHdaY gIrL!!! Picked out her bday outfit by herself!! #DolceGabbana shoes #crewcuts #imintrouble.

Well, a child just doesn't happen to pick out Dolce & Gabbana. First off, you have to be in a Dolce & Gabbana store, or another high end store that sells the brand.

It's not that the outfit itself isn't cute and age appropriate -- looks like a gray cardigan, a white shirt, flowered skirt and pink flats. It's just that I imagine it cost about $1000. Granted, Jamie Lynn must have the money (somehow). Maybe auntie Britney paid for it. And of course people can spend their money how they wish.

But surely this is sending the message that designer brands = personal worth. On the other hand, hopefully Dolce & Gabanna pays their garment workers a living wage, unlike many cheap brands.

But I just don't get it. Never will. Maddie will fit into this outfit for six months tops. Wouldn't it have been better to spend $100 on an outfit and donate the other $900 to charity? That would have been a nice message to send to her child.

But, okay, whatever. Maybe I'm being judgy. It's the kid's birthday, let her wear whatever she wants, right? Sure. But if you're gonna Instagram it, I get a say. So that's my say. Put that kid in a nice burlap bag with a belt and call it a day. Joke!

Do you think kids are too young for designer clothes?

Cute outfit, but get Farrah over there with her hot wax!

I hear what is being said, she just doesn't want the kid to grow up with a big head...it can make them bratty bullies. I know because I was the kid in standard clothes in a school full of kids dressed in high end stuff and I always was left out and bullied. Hopefully she will become a well rounded person...she sure is cute!

I agree with the article writer. It's ridiculous and wasteful and materialistic. Of course if she has money she can spend it on what she wants but she looks stupid as hell spending it like that. That's usually the start to a preppy brat.

Yes, you're being judgmental...

How do we know these clothes weren't second hand? There are high end consignment shops in every big city who cater to those with little $$ and expensive tastes. Since we don't know the answer to that question, we can't pass judgment.tsk tsk

Plus she's five, kids aren't really label conscious that young. Whose to say she has any idea how much her clothes cost? Do you honestly expect them to shop somewhere like Target? Under your logic if a kid is going to grow out of clothes quickly why spend any money at all? Let's just have everyone go naked til they're 18 so you don't get all butthurt over somebody else's income. Idiot.

I could care less if she wears target brand or dolce...doesn't get my panties in a bunch ; )

Since she hasn't done anything since Zoey 101 her smartest move would not be to spend her money on designer clothes. Maybe big sis will help her out financially. Boy, she really F'd up he'd promising career.
