Kidz_Vuz 055The Sunday before Thanksgiving, KidzVuz hosted our fifth event — but by far our biggest one!  It was FashionTweenStas: Get your Girl On.  100 tween girls (yes, I am insane!) and their moms (less insane) in NYC  for a fashionable, fabulous, and fun day filled with all kind of great stuff for the girls to try, touch, experience, and learn.
