A Stylish Night with Kidpik

A few weeks ago, Kidpik, the personalized fashion brand for girls, invited us to a special sleepover at the NY Edition Hotel in the Flatiron District. This sort of invitation doesn't come along every day, so I just had to say yes -- and I'm glad I did! We had so much fun, and I'm excited to share a little recap and a few photos of our experience. But be forewarned, you may have the urge to go shopping for the little gal in your life in a few minutes...

After getting checked in, we had some time in our room (the hotel is, in a word, gorgeous) before changing into our matching Kidpik lounge wear and heading upstairs to the penthouse. Before dinner, every guest had a mini style session with Manuel "Manu" A. Mendez, kids stylist to the stars (he counts Blu Ivy Carter among his clients). Manu is currently serving as Kidpik's guest stylist, and could not have been nicer. But more of that in a moment.

Normally I would not suggest to the girls that we go for the "matchy matchy" look, but our outfits were SO comfy, and as you can see, we weren't having any fun at all. Off to the penthouse for a look at the sun setting over the skyline and a little outfit styling...

Manu helped the girls find some looks, and I sort of sat back as much as I could, as I want them to begin developing their own style and sense of what they like and don't like (for instance, Vivian loves anything with sparkles, Millie not so much). That's one very cool thing about Kidpik. When you sign up to receive a box, you'll be invited to take a Style Quiz, where your child can choose her favorite colors, styles, fabrics, etc. Then, her personal stylist will choose 3 fashionable head-to-toe mix & match outfits personalized to your child (the average price per item is around $13). Then, you have 7 days to figure out what you want to keep, then ship back the rest (for free), and only pay for the items you keep. So fun, right? One important note: you don't have to make this a monthly thing, either. You can do once a month, every 2 months or 3 months, and you can pause, skip or cancel at any time.

Thanks for your expert tips, Manu!

Next, the girls personalized some jean jackets and we had dinner shortly thereafter. I really enjoyed chatting with the other guests, and the girls had a lot of fun playing with the other little girls that attended with their moms. 

The next morning, before we headed back uptown for school, we headed back to the penthouse, where it had been transformed into a mini showroom for Nina Shoes, which is owned by the same company as Kidpik. Known for their formal and bridal footwear, Nina is branching out with more hip "out on the town" options and coordinating purses (loving those stripes!)

Thanks to Kidpik for such a fun night, and if you're looking for a gift for the mini fashionista in your life (or making shopping simple a New Years resolution), Kidpik is a great brand to check out. Need to dress up during the holidays? Kidpik is currently offering 4 personalized box options in different styles -- Ruby Princess is my favorite!

Happy shopping, friends!
