Emma is starting to grow out of her back-to-school clothing purchases, and she’s coming home with ripped knees in her jeggings from playing so much! I’m glad she’s having a blast at school and all, but I needed to pick up some more bottoms for her.
I’d looked at some big box stores, but they have a ton of Spring stuff — shorts, skirts, and the like. Even though we live in Arizona, it’s still chilly! She needed some jeans, and so I figured I’d just find her some online.
I had seen other bloggers post about how they found great stuff for pretty affordable prices at CookiesKids.com, so I wanted to check it out! I was pleasantly surprised with how much of a selection they had! Not only did they have clothing for all seasons (including new Spring fashion!), but they had clothes for all of my kids!
In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990′s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
I knew these would be perfect! I liked all of the colors, but I wanted to get her something different — she has TONS of pink and purple, so I picked the turquoise color. It’ll complement her pinks and purples without being overpowering. Not to mention they’re only $9.99! Steal!
Cookies Kids also has school uniforms that are super adorable, and super affordable! Check out this really cute cable knit sweater for only $9.99!
Emma doesn’t even need to wear uniforms at her school, but this sweater is super adorable and I’d buy it for her anyway! I love the fact that it’s belted — super on point with trends!
I wanted to look for some girls dresses for Maisy while I shopped, and I found one that I just loved!
Do I even need to point out that this is a U.S. Polo Assn. dress for $9.99? Regularly $38! Steal, for sure! Maisy is so super adorable in this dress. Don’t believe me? Check her out! She’s playing Candyland in style!
Love that wild child. You know how hard it is to get an almost two year old to stand in one place, look at you, and smile? Hard. She wore her dress all day today, and I love that it’s comfy enough for an every day dress, but it’s stylish too! I’m always a little nervous to buy clothes online for myself or the kids, because you just don’t know how a certain brand will fit. Cookie’s Kids has a new feature called Alva Kids to help you get the right size for a specific brand. Just answer a few questions about your kid, and it will determine the best size clothing item for your child! It’s easy, and it’s free, so you’ve got nothing to lose!
So you’ve got a little prince who needs to look especially dapper? You should check out #CookiesKids for boys suits too! If you’ve got a fancy Easter function coming up or a summer wedding, you’ll need your little guy to be handsome as ever.
Here’s what I ended up with in my shopping cart:
So not only did I snag a really cute pair of jeans for Emma, but I also got a name brand dress for Maisy for under $30! I’m really pleased with my purchases, and the girls both love their new duds. I will always check Cookie’s Kids before heading out to buy the kids new clothes. If I can score like this each time, I’ll be so happy! If you want to check out my entire shop, you can head over to my Google+ story.
Fun fact for you guys: There are seven Cookie’s Kids stores in the NYC area in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica as well as online at CookiesKids.com! Be sure to stay connected to Cookie’s Kids on Facebook and on Twitter!
