While opening new malls might not seem the brightest thing to do in this economy, I guess outlet malls are a different story. We took a trip down to the area's newest The Jersey Shore Premium Outlets in Tinton Falls with work because it's the site of our newest Oshkosh B'gosh store. I have to say, it looks great. I hate to sound like a commercial but, hey, I happen to actually be very proud of our product, I only wish it were closer to us so more people could discover our clothes! Just look at this adorable striped toddler dress (all yours Bea when I see you) and this soft newborn onesie that has bear ears and paws on the feet. You can also find the standby classic overalls and cuddly toys for all the little boys on your gift list.
While the mall is also home to some high end shopping like Burberry and Kate Spade, you kind of know me well enough by now to know that I am not always about high end. Therefore I found a bit of flashy high heeled happiness at Nine West, where these were by one get one half off, so I opted for red and purple. My real find was a discount Claire's (I know how can a Claire's become even more discount??) well,?I went insane all over this place and walked away some neon nail polish, a necklace, and with over thirty pairs of earrings. I'd like to draw your particular attention to these zipper ones.
The J Crew outlet was a great spot for boyfriend/husband shopping and more than one of my coworkers and I were swayed by this lovely purple top, which looks like preppy boy heaven with the striped tie.
It's about an hour drive from the city, and to be honest the food court is terrible, but, and I know this could convince me to return – coming soon is an Orange Julius! I didn't even know they could be found anymore. I was crushed to see the sign and realize it was not opened yet.
