I began my search online with Cookie's Kids. They have 7 brick & mortar stores in Jamaica, Queens, Bronx and Brooklyn in New York as well as an online store. As you can probably guess, I went to CookiesKids.com to look around.
Right away I noticed the large selection of fashion brands I've heard of like Baby Phat clothing and North Face backpacks. They also have school uniforms and toys. I was surprised to find such a large selection for V's age. I thought it would be mostly school aged kids clothes.
First and foremost, I looked for a coat. She has one coat that is too big and one that is too small. She needed one that she could wear now. Using the Alva kids icon next to the coat I chose, I was able to plug in a few details about V and get her the size that would fit her best which happened to be 3T. The coat she's been wearing is 18 months!
Here's V in her brand new coat and her pet bunny! I think she likes it.
She needed long sleeve tops so I searched through what was available in her size. I ended up purchasing a couple of tees -- a fuchsia crewneck and a graphic one with pockets! Both were under $5.
Before I left, I looked through the clearance section because that's just how I roll. While searching through clearance I spotted colored jeans available in 5 colors! I wanted to buy one of each but I'm trying to break the habit of buying multiples of the same item. I bought the fuchsia color to match her new tee. They're the perfect length thanks to the Alva kids icon.
I spent a total of $37.91 and was able to purchase a winter coat, two tops and a bottom including the cost of shipping. Not too bad. It's not thrift store prices but pretty comparable and everything is fresh, new and on trend for the mini fashionista!
What do you think? Do you like V's new style?
