The president of a leading retailer promises to offer more modest clothing to youth after receiving a letter from a concerned 11-year-old girl.
Ella Gunderson's missive to Seattle-based Nordstrom made it all the way to Pete Nordstrom, an executive vice president and president of the company's full-line stores, the Seattle Times reported.
"Dear Nordstrom," wrote Gunderson, of Redmond, Wash. "I am an eleven-year-old girl who has tried shopping at your store for clothes (in particular jeans), but all of them ride way under my hips, and the next size up is too big and falls down.
"I see all of these girls who walk around with pants that show their belly button and underwear," she continued. "Your clearks sugjest that there is only one look. If that is true, then girls are suppost to walk around half naked. I think that you should change that." (sic)
