My daughter is 11, is 5'1" tall, and weighs about 90 lbs. She's developing physically into a teen girl. However, her mental age is about 6 years old. She's LD, OCD, and ADHD.
I'm trying to find age appropriate clothing for her, but it's hard with a lot of the clothing being sold these days.
Also, I'm trying to find her shoes that are not sneakers. She wants a pair of sandals. She can't stand anything between her toes, needs support (no flip flop or open shoes). When I find a pair I like, she says they are old lady shoes She wants the glittery kind or sparkle kind.
For most of what's out on the market, she doesn't have the coordination to wear them. She's best in either sneakers or crocs.
Any suggestions are welcomed.
Land's End? My DD is older and NT, but I think she would still have been okay with clothes from Land's End at the age of your DD. Most of her clothes came from Hanna Andersson, but I did find the larger sizes didn't fit a kid on the skinny side that well. 11 is a difficult age, they are neither one thing nor the other.

Here are some ideas with decent necklines:

Check Keens for sandels - http://www.keenfootwear.com
They are pricey but pretty sturdy, with good support and have a closed toe.
As far as clothes, what about the GAP. They have cute things but are kind of conservative and plain to me. Or, Ralph Lauren??
