Look of the Week: March 22, 2010

March 22, 2010

Recently, I overheard a daughter in our dressing room say to her mother, “I just want your opinion, Mom.  I don’t really care what it is.”  Ahh, I thought to myself, the perils of shopping for a tween, and then I promptly forgot about it.

This week, however, I recruited ACS seventh grader Leyla to be our Look of the Week model to remind everybody that Mama Goose isn’t just for little kids, and then I had a pang of nervousness — what if she hated everything in the store and stomped off, refusing to model a single piece of clothing?  Luckily, Leyla couldn’t have been more delightful, and it turns out that our 9-14 girls’ selection was so phenomenal, that we couldn’t settle on just one outfit!  Leyla and I had so much fun that I considered offering my personal shopping services complimentary to all mamas of tween girls — otherwise, I’ll have to wait a decade until my teeny toddler finally grows into those sizes!

Leyla’s first outfit consists of a size 12 Gap dress, new w/ tags ($14.95) paired with an Old Navy cardigan in a 10/12 ($3.95).  A Sewing Mommy headband ($5.00) and silver earrings from our women’s accessories collection ($6.99, pictured with all outfits) bring the outfit together.  On her feet, Leyla rocks a pair of Teva sandals, newly available at the Goose in women’s sizes 5-10 for $23.98. 

Outfit #2 features a Gap tank top in size 12 ($3.95), a Gap hoodie in 14/16 ($4.95) and new w/tags Children’s Place sequined jeans (no longer for sale — so cute on Leyla that she took them home!)  The metallic flats pictured are the model’s own, and the headband is by SweetiePie Designs ($6.95).

The final outfit is built around an adorable Juicy Couture terrycloth skirt in size 14 ($8.95), worn with a Gap tank in size 14/16 ($4.95) and a short-sleeved hoodie by Justice in size 10 ($4.50).  For this outfit, the Tevas came back to complete the warm weather look.

 The moral of the story is:  not only does Mama Goose do big kids, we do it well!  Bring those tweens in today.

    Will you provide this service for 25 year olds who cannot shop with their mothers?
