Right down the street from Jenny Bec's, on Montana, is one of the cutest kid's clothes store ever, Peek...Aren't You Curious
. I've been seeing my sister dress her daughter, Berry, in the sweetest outfits (like the dress in the pic), and I had always wondered where she bought most of Berry's clothes. While at Americana, about a month ago, we went into a store called Peek...Aren't You Curious and the moment I walked in, I knew that this wasn't just any kind of store.
They had a seating area with children's books and they had these wonderful quotes on the walls that were so very sweet (the quote below is from their Americana at Brand store).
I talked to the Manager of the Montana one today and found out that they're having 50% off of everything in the store right now
. Sale started last Thursday and will go for about 3 1/2 more weeks. They're getting ready for their new fall line to come in so this is the time to go!
Here's some interesting tidbits about Peek...
+ The owner designs 90% of the clothes
+ They carry six sub brands
+ They currently have 5 locations (ones around So Cal are on Montana, at Americana at Brand and Fashion Island in Newport Beach).
+ Baby sizes are 3months to 18 months and then they have size 2 to 10 in boys and girls
Tierney, the manager at the Montana location, was very sweet and nice. They were so down to earth there. Love them.
If you have some time, you have to read about the background
to this place on the Peek site. It's the August 8, 2007 story that almost made me cry (I said almost, so don't make fun of me). :)
Here's the front of the store - so you can find it on Montana.
Who is this place for? Moms or aunts or uncles who are looking for high quality, well designed clothes. Go now and pay half off!
Here's a little about them from their website:
Peek...Aren't You Curious, the brainchild of apparel veterans Amy Hennisch and Tina Canales, is a new children's apparel store built on the concept that childhood is a joyful experience still open to parents. From day one, the founders have kept one eye firmly focused on the intrinsic connections between parent and child. Their stores are suffused with subtle cues designed to pull the visiting shopper back to her childhood. The clothing shows the same consideration and quality that adults demand in their own wardrobe, with thoughtful details, luxurious materials, and interesting finishing work that elevates it to something that kids can love.
