    I love the convertible dress.  I think it would be fun for your BM’s.  I have 8 & 10 year old daughters.  Both have bold opinions about what they like to wear.  I wouldn’t let them wear that dress.  I think it is a little too grown up for them, and unless it’s offered in a junior size (which I didn’t see), it wouldn’t fit them properly.  They don’t have breasts yet, so it wouldn’t look right.  I would look for a dress that is offered in youth or junior sizes, so it’s made for a young girls body.  

    My suggestion would be to pick 3-5 dress that you like for her, and let her pick which out of those that she will want.  I would worry about reds matching if it was me, so I would let her wear gold.  I think she will probably feel really special that she gets something a little different.  Good luck!

    I think the dress is adorable!  It would be cute on any girl, any age.  I think the 9 year old would think it was trendy.  She has the option to wear it in a way she likes or is comfortable with.  I don’t think it looks too old or mature whatsoever.

    These convertible dresses can be made to have a “tank” or “tube” top added to it so it wouldnt be so revieling for a young girl. You may want to get safety pins to ensure that the straps dont come undone from her tugging on it and running around.  Also Im not sure if you know a person who sews, but these can be made for less than $50 pp. There are plenty of instructions on how to make them online. This way u can add the tank section for the little one.

    That dress does not look like it is approp for a 9 year old IMO.
