I find myself in the unenviable position of shopping for with a tween daughter. Shopping requests are occurring more frequently, and the process increasingly involves heated use of brand names and more than a little negotiation.

I am dreading the onset of school dances and bar/bat mitzvahs--fancy dresses up the stakes (and the price tag). Daughter & I will be shopping at Berkley Girl, where we had a pleasant excursion this weekend. The store has a cheery but low-key vibe and a sensibly edited selection of party dresses. Fingers crossed...

Say goodbye to the friendly staff, warm bagels and creamy spreads of this UWS institution: H & H's doors officially close this Sunday. "That is literally tragic," Suzanna Varrichione, 14, told the New York Times. Tragedy, indeed. Word on the street is that they'll keep their 46th St. location, but we called all four listed phone numbers and not one was working.
