sales season

Sales season has officially started…

Attention, Fashion Force! Black Friday might still be a few days away, but the sales won’t wait, and there are already tons of bargains to be had. You don’t have to be in the US to take advantage of the discounts either, because while Black Friday and Cyber Monday used to be associated with the Thanksgiving holidays, they’ve recently spread to the UK, too, with many international retailers jumping aboard the bandwagon, and claiming Black Friday as their own. (Yeah, we know it’s weird, but if it means we get a discount on that coat we’ve been eyeing, we’re not going to complain…) One of the first brands to get sales season underway is Shopbop, whose sale started today, offering…

How to save money on high fashion items

You COULD spend $282 on this paint-spattered shirt: OR you could just spatter paint over an existing shirt for free. (Or for the cost of the paint, if you don’t have it. It probably won’t cost you almost $300, though.) Similarly, you COULD spend £795 on this KitKat inspired clutch bag: OR you could just buy a REAL Kit Kat and carry that around with you instead. You won’t be able to carry your stuff in it, true, but you can’t carry a whole lot of stuff in a clutch bag either, and you can’t eat one either – which you can do with the real Kit Kat. You COULD pay $430 for this extra-long-sleeved sweater: OR you could simply…
