Abercrombie Kids - Glendale Galleria
2148 Glendale Galleria,
California 91210
"Styles Are Right for Tweens"
Tween fashion can be difficult. Gymboree is too young, Forever 21 is too old. Try Ambercrombie Kids. The styles are modest, sporty and on top of the trends! They are basic without being boring!

Glendale Galleria offers a storefront so you can let your tween shop to his/her heart's content. The mall features other tween friendly shops like GapKids and Justice.

Rodeo Drive | kids travel, kids activities
Rodeo Drive
Rodeo Drive,
Beverly Hills,
"For True Fashionistas"
If your tween is interested in fashion, you have to take her for a walk down Rodeo Drive! No trip to LA would be complete without it. Take a leisurely stroll past the brands she has no doubt heard of: CHANEL, Christian Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Prada and many more. Window shopping at these fine shops is exciting to a future fashion designer or fashion editor!

Be sure to watch for the The Rodeo Drive Walk of Style® plaques embedded into the sidewalks along Rodeo Drive honoring style legends for their contributions to the worlds of fashion and entertainment.
