I completely agree with you Nordic and I think you might be right in saying that the cultural differences play in since both you and I are Scandinavian.

The nitpicking on Isabella's clothes when she was younger always made me rather upset because 1# I don't think it was that bad, 2# a lot of young Danish girls her age dressed the same, and 3# again, she's a child and IMO it's alright to look comfortable (what others call sloppy) in "private" (and by that I mean when not out in an official matter, which Isabella hasn't been yet).

I suspect quite a bit, and have always thought so. Over the years there have been plenty of pictures of Isabella and Christian with other Danish children, mainly those of their parents' friends, (the Heerings, etc), and the other little girls were always dressed quite similar to Isabella in style.

There also used to be a lot of complaints that Isabella looked "sloppy", I can only assume from people whose prior experience was with very docile little girls.

^yes you might have a point in that, Spain is more hot&summery because its a meditarrean(?) country, like mine, maybe north countries have other kind of clothes to fit with the climate, etc...but if that was the main reason, shouldnt Isabella be dressed the 'same' as before?
its clear that their taste got way better and that they might have learnt with their mistakes in the past, mainly Mary of course!
but its not that Isabella was always bad dressed, some clothes were lovely, but mostly of them were
(i remenber that awful look from the Summer photosession in 2010, along with the hair, thank god Mary cut her hair and she has sported a more neat haircut, diferent hairstyles and with diferent hair pieces)

Do you mean this look (I hope the link works)
What on earth is awful about this: A simple white top with a colourful summer skirt?

ohh sorry, maybe we've got diferent point of views^^ but i dont think it suits her and her age. but guys dont get me wrong, i think Isabella is one of the most grogeous young royals out there, i just thought she wasnt that well dressed when she was younger unlike her european counterparts. the young royals can be children and wear comfortable clothes, but they also can look good or not, just like the adults.

hairpieces like ribbons, headbands, i used to wear it a lot as a kid and toddler^^ Isabella wears them more often now

Well, Princess Estelle is also Scandinavian and I have loved how they have dressed her so far. Sheīs still very little, though, so her parents maybe donīt have to worry so much about dressing her with "confortable" clothes.
But the same goes for IA of Norway, as far as I can remember I havenīt seen her wearing such clothes.
Not mention to the fact that little Josephine is dressed in much prettier dresses than her sister was at her age...

I'd never understood the objections to the way Isabella was dressed when she was younger - other than tastes differ. Isabella was not the 'smock' type of little girl which incidentially suited me just fine since I find smock dresses and smock-like dresess at worst plain ugly - at best hopelessly outdated. But in that I differ from the majority I think.

What I don't understand are comments like 'Mary's taste has changed' (ergo Isabella's dresses have changed). What about the father and his tastes in his own childrens's clothes!! My own three daughters have definitely not dressed or been dressed solely to suit my personal taste. No matter how hard I tried to suppress him, their father's say in the matter simply could not just be ignored!
It's a new century and fathers do have a say as well....

Incidentially, if I still had daughters in this age, I'd love to dress them in this outfit. It's just plain sweet

Don"t forget that children can have a very determined view of what they want to where. Sometimes it is just better to let them choose and hope they get better as they grow.

Amen to that! Moreover, many children express an artistic streak in their (in grownups' eyes) rather bizarre clothes choices which they should be allowed to explore.

Everybody has the right to have their own opinion. And ways of thinking do depend on what one īs taste is.
The thing that many people forget is that this is called Cute clothes for little royals. So we are talking about fashion and not about my daughter or my granddaughter. We are talking about royalty and children who are not at all seen as your or my daughter. These children are photographed and these photos go all over the world and many people wondered why a little Danish princess had on a shoe with a hole and clothes that really didnīt suit her (and Iīm not talking about the long skirt and top), whilst her own brother Christian was always neat.
You can see the difference exactly in the twins now, who look absolutely gorgeous.
Isa is one of my favorite little royals. She is lovely, impish full of personality. But she can be comfortable and neat , wearing casual clothing or more formal stuff. When they were in England for the Olympics everybody was commenting about how lovely she was, how pretty her clothing was etc...
After all both of her parents dress very well, so did her brother Christian always.So do all of Joachinīs children.

The girls look so adorable in their school uniforms! I wish that practice took root in the States, because it saves a lot of headache for the parents. I love the white dresses. The girls look so sweet and angelic.

Oh man, the shoe with hole on Isabella uproar has got to stop!!...Mary and Fred are practical parents first and foremost, and Isabella was a crawling baby at that stage...They are not going to fork out money for a new pair of shoes just to appease the media and general public when at her stage in development the toes of ALL her shoes will get worn and scuffed...I think their reasoning was that it is better to let her crawl in shoes that are already worn than buy a new pair and for them to get worn as well...Once the crawling stage is over with, then the shoes absolutely got tossed in the bin...It just seems excessive to me to expect Mary and Fred to buy new shoes for this reason...I thought it made them seem human and real, M&F practical, sensible and Isabella normal child learning to crawl wearing out the toes of her shoes...I would have been more worried and disturbed if she was in perfect shoes with no damage...OK, this one needs to be let go of...Children scuff their shoes while learning to crawl...the end

Exactly! If the point of the shoes was to get messed up on a crawling child then a used pair was the way to go.
