  1. Yay I think I am the first person to leave a comment!! So I seriously love this store! I came in the first time with one of my cousins and my oldest daughter and we spent probably at least an hour looking through every rack! There were so many great things! My 11 year couldn't get enough of the jewelry! Anywhere that can appeal to both her and I at the same time is an amazing place!! Ok so here goes I posted to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
