Now, Rebecca and I have been saying for years that the problem with making adult sizes is that even if we did make them, no one would actually want to wear them because they would put them on and realize immediately that they look just like Mrs. Frizzle. And who wants to be Mrs. Frizzle?!
Well, it turns out that I do.

More than 25 years later, I have lived the gamut of consequences that accompany a life trained to rely on a purse instead of a pocket, the sum total of which has shown me that carrying a purse has made me more vulnerable and incompetent than I otherwise would have been if I’d been equipped with pockets instead.

I had a reputation in college as being a scatterbrain. I could never find my keys and I locked myself out of my room 26 times my first quarter. I went through innumerable pairs of sunglasses and multiple bike locks. I was terrible at keeping track of my own stuff.
Reflecting on the chaos I created for myself as a first-year college student, I estimate that fifty percent of the problem originated in the habits I had developed living across the street from the high school I attended. My mother worked from home and the door to our house was usually unlocked. Even if it was locked, I had figured out at age 8 that I could climb over the back wall from our tree house. So I had keys but I never used them. I also didn’t bother carrying around most of the other things I needed during the day since I knew I’d be stopping home for lunch or even occasionally during class - I’d just tell my algebra teacher I needed to visit my “locker.”

We’ve been putting them on our dresses, leggings and shorts since 2016 and we’re so honored that many of you tagged us to bring us into the national conversation about pockets for girls.
To continue to raise awareness about this important issue, we’re joining forces with our friends at Girls Will Be, a girls clothing company that makes totally amazing shorts for girls with lots of pockets, to keep the #girlsdeservepockets movement moving forward.

Whether we’re carrying things out of necessity or because we found an awesome little treasure, my kids and I rely on pockets. If we don’t have pockets, we rely on each others’ pockets.
At Princess Awesome we believe in pockets. They foster independence. They give kids freedom. Kids needs pockets. And girls need and deserve them just as much as boys.

Do pockets really make a difference in how we navigate our lives? I think they do. From an early age, kids with pockets have a slight edge on learning independence. They don’t need someone else to hold things for them when they need both hands. Those tiny moments of self-sufficiency set in motion mindsets and methods of operating that ripple throughout our lives. A child with a pocket can go a little farther and have a little more confidence than a child who constantly needs someone else present to hold or monitor their necessities.

Girls’ clothing is often designed more for visual appeal than for utility - and that affects how girls play, move, and navigate daily life. We’re committed to making dresses with pockets - because we can, because they’re useful, and because girls deserve them.
