Back to School Fashion at Justice.
It’s that time of year and the search is on for what the girls are going to wear for their ‘first day’ of school this year. Having girls, one of our favorite things we all share is the love of shopping. There’s just something uplifting about sifting through the racks of clothes together, the laughter shared and the fashion shows that ensue in the fitting rooms. It really is the one of our favorite ways to bond!
Last weekend, we were invited to Justice in SmartCentres Etobicoke for an exclusive back to school VIP event. To say that we were super excited was an understatement. One of the girls’ favorite stores is Justice and now that Mimi is older, Gabby the Justice veteran can show her the ropes. They closed down the store and we experienced exactly what it is to ‘Live Justice’. A big thank-you and shout out to Justice for sponsoring this post and getting the girls in some new threads for back to school.
What is Live Justice?
Girls with heart. They’re everyday girls that live in small towns, big cities, and everywhere in between. They love the same sports, music, shows and movies. And best of all, they LIVE JUSTICE every day – active, smart, together, creatively, positively and connected!
They are girls on a mission to CHANGE THE WORLD!
Shop Your Heart Out!
We have been very lucky to have been given many amazing opportunities over the years and this event was one for the books! The whole Justice team really knocked it out of the park with this event and they thought of everything. Most of all, what girl wouldn’t want Justice all to themselves to shop?
They set up a ‘Sweet Treats’ table with all the sweets the little shoppers could handle. Gummies, jelly beans, jube jubes, macarons, Shirley Temples and boxed water. You know, fuel to shop and to keep the mamarazzi snapping away! They ran raffles throughout the night and we were able to snag some more gift cards to use that night!
The Justice Etobicoke team at the SmartCentres Justice were awesome! Liz took one look at the girls and was able to know exactly what their style was. Gabby loves an edgy, more rocker style of clothes or pure comfort clothes like a great tee and leggings and she absolutely adores active wear. Mimi loves anything colorful, frilly and pretty and luckily, Justice has all of these styles!
Liz walked through the store with Gabby and Mimi and helped them pick out clothes that suited their individual style. She knew what to pair with what and helped us find some statement pieces that can be interchanged with different items to make new and different looks at a drop of a hat.
Shop Til You Drop.
The girls set off on their own after the help of Liz and some great ladies from the Justice crew. Soon enough, they were happily putting together the cutest outfits. Not only does Justice have cute clothes and shoes, they have all types of accessories. From exclusive back packs and monogrammed purses to phone cases and Beanie Boos.
You’ll even find hair accessories like clips, head bands and ties, hats, scarves and jewelry. There’s also bedroom decor, beauty products and even stationary. It’s a one-stop shop to get everything you need for back to school and to add that extra flair that girls crave!
Let the Fashion Show Commence!
The girls had tons of fun trying on all of their outfits, Liz made Mimi and Gabby laugh and she really made them feel like rock stars! As you can see, they tried on a lot of outfits and we took almost every single one of them home.
Gabby was in love with the active wear and we all got a kick out of a printed tee that stated “Most Likely to Be the Next Fashion Blogger” and you know we brought that home! Paired with a cute rhinestone denim jacket, studded leggings and buckle moto boots–we were set!
The Epic Haul!
As much fun as the girls had shopping for their clothes, they had just as much fun showing them off. These are just a few of the outfits the girls took home. They walked away with jeans, capris, active wear, t-shirts, jackets, vests, hoodies, boots, a dress, a skirt, cami’s, pull-over sweaters, tights and even Shopkins and a Beanie Boo.
Needless to say, Gabby and Mimi are stocked up for the year and the finds were incredibly fabulous. The prices are affordable and when you shop Justice, you have the chance to save on your purchases.
Jeans, tights and jeggings start at $20 and throughout the store you’ll find ‘Style Buys’ where you can staple items at a great price. That means you can stock up on cami’s, tanks and tees in different sizes for the rest of the year. The jeans are a must since the fit is spectacular! They have all kinds of styles, cuts and colors to choose from. One of the styles that the girls both purchased were jeggings, they look like denim but feel like fleece.
They have great sales and during the event, the more we shopped–the more we saved! If you spend $50 or more, get $10 off and if you spend more than $75, you get $20 off. They have these sales periodically so make sure to subscribe to their newsletter to get the inside scoop for their next sale. Plus, if you subscribe right now, they’ll give you 15% off your next in-store or online purchase!
If you’re still looking for stylish and trendy clothes for back to school, be sure to visit your nearest Justice store. The clothes are age-appropriate and aimed for girls aged 6-14. As a mom of two girls who are far apart in age, it is helpful and convenient to be able to shop for both of them in one store. Especially when the clothes is stylish and they both approve.
The ladies at SmartCentres Etobicoke are fabulous, so if it is your closest Justice–stop in. They are a great bunch and will definitely help you dress your girls in clothes that suit their styles. You can find the closest Justice store to you, here.
Does the tween in your life Live Justice?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
