As much as I really like Julie Moran, I find it odd that she is dressing her two girls alike – even down to the bows in their hair! They are not twins and are five years apart for goodness sake. As a twin myself who was forced to dress just like my twin sister for years against my will, this really does de-individualize your children. Dress them according to their own identities, Julie! Cute girls, though, and I’m sure she is a good mother …

Don’t know her name but that younger one is a dead ringer for a younger Andrea McArdle – pre ‘Annie’. LOL

I think it’s adorable that they are dressed alike! It’s very popular in the South. Dressing children alike does NOT “deindividualize” them as children. I’m sure she appreciates each of their personalities. Cute outfits Julie!

Sheri- How do you know that dressing alike wasn’t the GIRLS choice?

maybe it’s just because she’s kinda kneelin down,but her younger daughter looks older than 3 1/2

Well it may have been the children’s idea, but it’s probably more likely that their Mum, or another adult, that dressed them alike. Especially cause they’re going to such a public event.

I agree with Sheri, my sister and I are two years apart and our mother always dressed us alike and we hated it! People would ask if we were twins when I was brunette and her blonde and I was taller, it was crazy!

boy, did they luck out in the “beautiful eyes” department!! they are both gorgeous.

Jane on

They are all very, very cute – including mom!

Cute children. My sister and I were also dressed the same when we were younger. We didn’t ask for it but it didn’t harm us either. It’s just clothes and it looks cute!

Both Maiya and MaKayla are such cute little girls, and those eyes are just gorgeous!

My sister and I, who are three years apart, were often dressed alike when we were younger and didn’t often mind. I know there were a number of times that we wanted to dress alike, so I don’t mind seeing Julie’s girls in the same outfits. And they’re cute outfits, too!🙂

Thank you, Emma, for your support! Unless you were forced to dress alike as a child, no one knows how humiliating this can be — my mother forced my twin sister and I to dress alike until we were 14 years old!! It was mortifying and we finally revolted after fighting her on it for many years. If it is the girls’ choice – then that is fine – but I find it hard to believe that an 8-year-old would want to dress like her little 5-year-old sister. I’m sure it was Julie’s idea. Anyway, I just hope she keeps in mind their own personalities and identities when dressing them so they won’t get teased growing up. That is all I meant to convey … you don’t know what that’s like unless you have walked in my shoes.

look, it could’ve been that the younger sister wanted to dress like the older one! Who knows?

Who cares if they dressed alike. They are dressed appropriately and that’s a very proud mother of two lovely young ladies! Who cares if your mom forced you to dress alike, at least you had dresses to wear, isn’t that right? People learn to appreciate life and don’t worry about the little things! Take the time to appreciate the scents of roses, coffee, spices, or whatever else that fancy your scent receptors! Nothing but LUV!
