    hi,
    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;
    "girl" is a noun but in your sentence is "girlie" not "girl"
    "girlie" is a noun as well as an adjective.

    Girlie things are suitable for girls or women rather than men or boys. Adjective informal

    Cheers,

    You could also say 'Don't get all girlish and cute'.
