Making one’s own clothes requires corralling a herd of sheep, feeding them rainbows to dye them different colors, and hiring a professional hairdresser to braid them into sweaters. Outfit kids with fancy threads more practically with today’s deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of designer kids’ fashion at Urban Kidz. This Groupon is not valid for sale items.
The brainchild of Lila Metcalf, a fashionable mom of two, Urban Kidz has been slinging high-quality yet moderately priced trendsetting garb since 2005. Shoppers can peruse more than 80 brands covering a bevy of styles for boys, girls, newborns, and facsimiles of humans sculpted from mashed potatoes. Across the racks and shelves are short shorts, Bermuda shorts, and capris from !iT Jeans ($36–$42) and boys’ tees from Wes & Willy and Dogwood ($24–$28). Melodramatically caress the excellent modal fabrications, colors, and cuts of the Ragdoll items with your cheek before checking out tops, bottoms, and maxi dresses (starting at $26). While browsing, glean handy style advice from a helpful and knowledgeable staff and gain a subconscious shift in fashion sense from the vibrant décor steeped in violet and lime-green hues.
Combing the town for fashionable threads can be a confusingly head-spinning ordeal that leaves kids donning handbags as shoes and burlap potato sacks as itchy substitutes for swimsuits. Instead of wafting through a sea of grimy thrift-store blazers with rumpled tissues lodged in the pockets, visit Urban Kidz and obtain a wardrobe that smells fresher than a 16-year-old's bow-adorned first car parked on a driveway made of air fresheners.
