In one way or another, The Children's Place has been a part of my girl's lives (and wardrobe) since they were born. When they were littler and we lived in Portland, we stocked up on jackets, tights, scarves, hats and mittens. Their jeans fit my tall elder daughter the best, and their soft yoga pants, bought years ago, are now on their second go-round with my younger daughter. They've held up beautifully and best of all, the price is always right.
Every year the girls get new outfits for special holidays--Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. While they are still young enough to let me dress them festively, I am going to take advantage. This year their holiday outfits were generously provided by The Children's Place. I love the perky, modern designs that say "winter holiday" in an understated way. They don't need to look like elves to be in the holiday spirit although, truth be told, I wouldn't be opposed to dressing them that way.
On Bunny is a black velvet swing coat ($13.99) and red velvet skirt with black polka dots ($10.49). Wallie is wearing the matching velvet jumper ($13.99) which features a jeweled neckline that you can't quite see. She has the shine henley ($7.00) underneath it. All the velvet items are fully lined.
What I like about the clothes: The items are cute and the modern designs looks great. They aren't too embellished and the lining speaks to the quality of the items. All of the items are on sale, but even at their full prices, they are affordable options for the holidays. My girls wore their dresses on Thanksgiving and will wear these outfits to see Santa, to the Nutcracker (twice), to Christmas Eve caroling at our church and on Christmas Day. Possibly even on New Year's, too. Bunny's swing coat can also be worn with other skirts and over other dresses. All the items washed well and looked great after being hung dry.
What I don't like about the clothes: That there aren't more options in their sizes. I want to stock up for next year. If you like these outfits order now! Inventory is low.
