"Fashion at the speed of life"


The new 50% is up to 70%

Everyone knows that retail has been hit hard by the recession but with deep discounts at almost every turn, shoppers have a lot of decisions to make on where and how they could spend their money. So why the deep discounts? Retailers are having a hard time clearing out inventory. This fact was evident to anyone who still sees sweaters on sale at 80% in may (I bought one for my trip to New York) due to unseasonable warmth during the holidays. Lesson learned: People are more likely to buy items when they are clearance off during the season then afterwards. So the sales started early this year and wah la, 70% off summer essentials in June!! The sales are so huge, retailers are running out of bags. Recession?…What recession? So what are our top sale alerts?

Best Accessories: Aldo

We stopped by this store last night and picked up a pair of beaded sandals that are very tribal and a shimmering backpack – all for 48 dollars!! Aldo has always been one of our favorite go to store for accessories and besides their clearance they are now offering items starting at 20 dollars. The store may only have a few items left (there were empty shelves at Coral Square Mall) but the site still has some great 40% + extra 30% deals.

Best Clothing: Lohemann’s

We went to this store for its extra percent off sale and found great deals. We also found out that they are having a spectacular 4th of July sale with clothing marked as low as 5 dollars!! For a quick fix, shop their dresses which come up to a mere 20 dollars for designer clothing like Marc Jacobs, Anne Klein and BCBG. Our second pick is New York and Company which had 3 dollar belts, and a 80% off sale. Check them both out below:

  1. I hqve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners andd bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well
    as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare
    to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
