Someone so generously gave me a gift card to this store. I have to buy online but have no idea what to get.
The gift card is for $100, not looking to spend anything more than that. I am not accustomed to shopping with such prices. I have no idea how to spend the money. Would probably be best for dd12. Also I am nervous to buy something and then it doesn’t fit then it’s a waste of the money. She is very tall (around 5’2”).

Any nice shabbos dresses are mostly over $200 so that’s not an option, I can get a single skirt or top for her in my price range.

Anyone like shopping who wants to go through the site and see what may be appropriate for dd12 for yom tov that’s for $100?

This came in a shirt and skirt, I can't find it on the website but they had it in the store.

I think it was $96. Call the store in the morning, the sales girl is really nice and helpful. Tell her your situation and she will likely be able to make a suggestion or send you pictures/measurements.

Note that the first link is taffeta. Not a typical fabric for a shabbos dress...

Their website has filters, so you can only search for clothing within a certain price range. That should help you somewhat.

It's more plastic-y. The type that makes noise when you walk.

I want my kids to be comfortable during the day.


(I actually bought it for my kids for a simcha but returned it anyway because I didn't like the way it looked on. But that's a separate point.)

Beautiful stuff. Asking this clearly as someone who never spends money like this, is this clothing actually better (than kidichic for example) that it costs more?

It was someone on this site who gifted me and I am so grateful.

Also how do I access the sale section I don’t see it.

I think it varies. The only one of these companies that I've personally bought from is Cera Un Volta, but in general I find that the clothes I buy from the nice companies (mostly on deep discount) is made beautifully and washes/lasts well. Iv'e had some dresses that wash so well they look brand new at the end of a season and I can pass them down. For me the cheaper brands only look decent for about half the season. But it can vary from brand to brand and even within a brand. Iv'e had some more expensive companies that did not hold up well at all.
For sale, go to the tab you want (ex: dresses) and filter price low to high to see sale stuff first.

Wow this is really nice thank you!! I just can’t even fathom spending so much money for something. But B”H I have it to spend, I just feel stuck. Like, I only have it once what if I make the wrong choice. Or what if it doesn’t fit, or what if my daughter gets it dirty.
