so i was shopping at ruehl today (for those of you who don't know or have one near you it's an upper divison of Abercrombie aimed towards college/post college students mid twenties) and i couldn't help overhearing a kid (by that i mean she looked twelve) and her parents talking about the clothes she wanted to buy there. the mom promptly suggested Hollister and the girl used the excuse that she didn't know if there was one in the mall. i thought i was being helpful when i told them that hollister was in the mall along with Abercrombie and abercrombie kids. the girl was still pouting and trying to get her parents to purchase goods there by the time i left. i know it's somewhat of an expensive place (the cami i brought was 38$ and the tee 28$ which is okay to me but compared to what i made out with at gap...) and that's why her parents were effy on getting it for her but i also think it's not age appropriate. we all talk about "too old to wear this" but we never seem to talk about "too young for this" i thought the girl was too young to be wearing something from ruehl and to be honest, i don't want to be wearing the same thing as a twelve year old kid. which is why if i shop at abercrombie kids or gap kids i make it a rule to only get the boy tank or something basic (which can be crossed over) versus something that really screamed kids!
