The first time I heard about Cookie's Kids was seeing fellow bloggers tweet about the amazing prices and selection of clothes for kids. I checked out the site and could not believe some of our favorite kids' brands were on there: Disney, LRG, Levi's, Guess, Carter's, Puma, Paul Frank, Hello Kitty...
Cookie's Kids has 7 stores in the NYC area - Brooklyn, Bronx, Jamaica and online at CookiesKids.com
I invited Chris to check out the site and put his top picks in the cart and we would agree on what to get Duke. We almost always check out the Clearance section first. I noticed the $5 flat rate shipping! I decided to sign up for the Cookie's Kids newsletter because companies email discounts or specials every once in awhile and I love stretching my dollar.
Duke has a bunch of jeans, sneakers, t-shirts and hoodies. Even though he's outgrowing most of his t-shirts, they still look good on him so the goal for this shopping trip was to buy a coat / jacket for Fall.
I did a Size search first and then Brand search for local Southern California brand LRG - This is what came up and I immediately fell in love with the LRG "Leo" Hoodie.
Chris found this jacket and we all fell in love with it. It's the Sportier "Laughlin" Military Jacket and Duke ultimately decided this was the one jacket he wanted for Fall. If you look where the Size menu is, you'll notice the Alva Kids app - The app is easy to use, it asked a few questions about your child (gender, age, etc.) and suggested I get a size 5 for Duke but I ordered a 7 because I figured he's 6 years old and I should get one year up so he could use it for next year too.
Alva Kids sizer!
Here's a bigger shot of the jacket. It is gorgeous and definitely one we've been wanting to get him forever but the prices were never right. $24.99 is just right.
We looked at a lot of clothes on Cookie's Kids - You can see what other items we were eyeing and what we bought in our Google+ album! Since Duke helped in shopping for his own clothes, he was so happy when the package arrived and it was labeled Cookie's Kids!
So, you are probably wondering where is the picture of my cutie pie in his new jacket, looking fashionable for Fall? Well, I was wrong in ordering a size 7. It was too big for him. It was completely my fault! The jacket is excellent quality and still can not believe that it was only $24.99 - When I contacted Cookie's Kids to request an exchange, they were wonderful! We're so excited for the correct size because we're in love with this jacket! (I will update this post with pictures of Duke in his jacket when we get the new size)
Update! We got the correct size a few days later and it fit Duke perfect! We love it, it is absolutely great quality and he looks so cute in it!
