My favorite season is here – Fall! What’s not to love – with leaves turning orange, every store has pumpkin everything, family gatherings, cooler weather, and even holiday shopping. We visited one of our favorite outdoor malls this weekend – Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga and I went from fall shopping to a pie eating spree. Check out my Fall Finds below.

Victoria Gardens is a 147-acre open-air shopping mall with 3 big retail stores, about 170 specialty stores, and a 12-screen movie theater. If you’re visiting LA or Southern California, it’s over an hour east of Los Angeles Airport or 1 hour north of Disneyland. We love visiting not just for the number of stores and restaurants but because the place is also very kid-friendly and feels like an artistic, nicely landscape little city.
Here are some of my favorite Fall Finds at Victoria Gardens:
I started at the Gap store where I spotted a white, really soft sweater that looks good with the scarf and matched it with a velvet stretch denim and white shades. I can wear it for our travels.
Before checking out, I spotted ankle pants in different colors and prints. I added the burgundy one. At this point, I thought I’m really going to check out already when I ended up in the Gap Kids area. It sucked me in like the Black Hole. LOL!
How can you not get sucked in? They have a lot of the sequined tops that are really trendy this year – you can flip the sequins to reveal a different design. I got a heart design for my daughter where when you flip the sequins it turns into a Halloween design. The unicorn sequined sweater looks really good too and I regretted not getting it.
There’s also a Mickey/Minnie Gap collaboration so you may wanna check those out when you visit Gap. They’re all very adorable. We ended getting a suede dress with stars on them for our ‘Lil one.
After about an hour of being at Gap, we made a quick stop at the kids’ year-round favorite at Victoria Gardens for treats – the Hello Kitty Cafe. It’s located on the big lawn area in the middle of the shopping complex. Stop by here when you have kids. There’s a fountain, big lawn kids can run around in, and a train ride.
But the kids are not the only ones who got a treat. I got my sweet tooth satisfied as well. It’s one that is perfect for Fall. PIES!!! Have you been to The Pie Hole at Victoria Gardens? We stopped by and I ordered a slice of Coconut Cream Pie and a latte plus a whole Chocolate Brownie Pie to take home while the kids stayed at the outdoor playground beside it.
We also stopped by Lucky Brand Jeans. There’s a lot of nice printed tops and accessories. I bought a few tops and long necklaces plus these really nice jeans that has a dark hem on them.
The printed dress with a brown leather jacket also looked really good except it’s on the long side for me since I’m on the petite side but in my dreams, I would be sporting that.
Before leaving, we stopped by Optimus Toys and got LEGOs and a Barbie doll. It’s like a tradition to stop here whenever we visit. It’s hard to decide on what to take home though. If you are about to do your holiday shopping, do stop here if you need toys for the kids, they have a lot of them to choose from packed in a small toy store.
