So I have to tell you- I have FOND childhood memories of The Children’s Place. I don’t know why on earth I actually remember shopping there, but I do. My mom used to take me to the kids only store for all my new clothes and I remember they had these awesome circular things that you could climb in and out of and, of course, I spent all my time there climbing in and out while my mom picked out things and showed them to me. “Jamie, do you like this?” I look. “No!” I scream and go back to playing in the circles. Ah yes, I was a difficult child when it came to my attire. In fact, I only wore the color green (or greenish/blue) until I was about 4 years old, no joke.
Anywho, when I was offered the chance to attend a The Children’s Place shopping event at their The Grove Farmer’s Market store, I jumped at the chance. My little nephew Mark will be two years old at the end of January and now I’m totally the cool Aunt who bought him tons of trendy new clothes. I think what surprised me the most is how trendy the children’s stuff really is…I mean I picked out things for Mark that I’d love to see an adult guy wear- distressed denim jeans, toggle coats, graphic tees- amazing. I simply can not wait to give him all the new stuff I picked out for him- Best. Aunt. Ever.
