How the DSW Kids’ Shoe Party Made Partying with Parents Seem Cool

DSW kids invited us to enjoy a NY night out and celebrate their highly anticipated kids’ shoe department along with their nationwide back-to- school donation drive with Soles4Souls.  Over 200 doors in more than 40 states will be collecting new and gently worn shoes for the charitable organization which distributes shoes to the needy.  And we couldn’t be happier to help!  After all, we certainly had outgrown shoes to donate.  And I love taking any opportunity to teach Juliet (even at age 3) to appreciate and be thankful.  We have helped her sponsor other kids her age through World Vision and have used the opportunity to discuss how different their lifestyle is and the need to give back to those less fortunate.  So it was to no surprise that I found her happily able to give away her shoes at the event.  She understood the importance.

And it was truly a treat to not only give back but also to do so in such a beautiful setting!  620 Loft and Garden at Rockefeller Plaza overlooked the stunning St. Patrick’s cathedral allowing for some incredible views!

DSW really seemed to know how to throw a kid-friendly party, one that parents and kids would both enjoy.  Open bar, networking and tarot card reading for the parents and cute kid DJ,  popcorn, snow cones, hot dogs and this interactive piano for the adults er I mean the kids too!DSC_9504 dsw event

Oh and did I mention they had a flip flop bar??  That’s what’s hiding in the DSW goody bag pictured above!  Speaking of shoes, Juliet’s suede gladiators that everyone was going gaga over at the event were an online find and a steal at just $23.  The dress is vintage.  I love unique deals (as every DSW customer does)!dsw kids party

As the night drew on and we met old and new friends, we suddenly realized that we had closed the party down!  The sun was setting, people were scrambling for their last snow cone and farewells were being had.

You know it’s a good party when you’re not yet ready to leave!  Thank YOU DSW for providing a fun time for both us parents and kids.  See, perhaps partying with your parents ain’t so bad after all.

Juliet, Stella Leo

I know. I still have to find a matching pair of gladiator sandals for myself. I’m jealous of her.
