I’ve decided to start a new spot on my blog– THE MODEST TWEEN.
I’m sure I’m not the only mom out there struggling with finding clothes that are cute, affordable, age appropriate and modest for my tween.
She’s sometimes too old for the kids stores and the juniors clothes are still a little ill-fitting and often way too hootchie for my taste!
SO, I thought I’d start posting some of Scarlet’s fun clothes and where we get them and the secrets we use to make them hip and stylish and above all– modest.
So today’s tip of the day is from the store ABERCROMBIE– Abercrombie is the tween store of Abercrombie and Fitch.
Their sizes are ridiculously small!
For example, yesterday I bought my 4 year old a sweater there!
Oh, and to make it even crazier– I bought him a MEDIUM!!!
It makes me want to not shop there because their “size message” is absurd– BUT their clothes are soooo stinking awesome. sigh
Oh and another thing about the store– the prices are CRAZY EXPENSIVE.
I’m not painting a very pretty picture of this store, am I?!?!?!
Okay, but this is where my tip comes in.
ABERCROMBIE SALES ARE AWESOME!!!
And stuff is always on sale.
I NEVER buy anything that isn’t on sale.
I walk straight to the back of the store past all the fab clothes that aren’t on sale (I don’t even look– too painful) to the back room where EVERYTHING is on sale!
Mostly I buy at 40% off.
Also, if you aren’t by an Abercrombie– sign up for their emails.
They are always offering free shipping and their online sales are awesome too.
I hope you like this new feature– THE MODEST TWEEN– I’m excited to bring it to you!
