Our Los Tweens correspondent Jenny- mother of three all under 10- attended a fun Holiday Shopping event at The Children’s Place to check out the 2014 Holiday Collection. Here are her review and images:
Who doesn’t love The Children’s Place clothing?! Aside from this year’s Holiday Collection being outright adorable, their sales and overall prices are astounding. The event titled #BigFashionLittlePrices – should have been called Big Fashion Tiny Prices (Ha!). My 9 year old boy- tween was delighted with the variety of options to mix and match HIS way in respect to HIS style and taste. In the pictures you’ll see his Christmas dinner outfit- long sleeve red, blue and white plaid button down collar shirt, dark skinny jeans and casual high top sneakers.
He also picked his fall and winter outing/vacation outfit which include bootleg dark denim jeans, blue plaid button-down collar and a solid grey dressy sweat shirt to top it. This years trends mean your boy-tween’s dressy collar shirts don’t have to be boring and conforming. There are a variety of casual sweaters, dressy sweaters and denim jackets to top all types of shirts- adding accent and style.
The Children’s Place is stocked up with holiday and winter clothing starting from the most informal, but cute, holiday graphic Tee’s to formal button down collar shirts with matching ties and dress shoes- and everything in between. Scarves, warm leggings, floral skinny leggings, hair accessories, fabric flats with bows, high top sneakers (for boys and girls), stylish sweaters, hats, faux fur vests, Olaf backpacks and so on. My tween also took home a neautral zipper sweater hoodie for everyday use.
As temperatures start to dwindle for the season, you’ll appreciate the warmer outfits with fun warm colors for boys and pastel colored outfits for the girls. I’m digging the pastel colors for the chicas! Usually around this time of year you’re used to seeing the bold Holiday colors for girls and boys. A perfect example to this contrast is the charming tulle-ruffled skirts with matching layered long- sleeved shirts and fabric covered flats. Another adorable style that caught my eye were these fabulous dress- length sweaters with adorble boots and leggings. Top that with one of The Children’s Place’s darling hair accessories and you’ve got yourself a snazzy kid-approved outfit! SO many adorable promising outfits that are sure to appease your tweens. Beware- My little ones (2 years old and 3 years old) wanted to take home ALL their warm and fuzy full body pajamas and all the Olaf backpacks (that are almost as tall as they are). I saw other toddlers demanding the same things- so be prepared to take home a few!
Enjoy and be sure and let us know about the special finds and buys you pick up at The Children’s Place on our Los Tweens Facebook page!
