With NYFW less than 8 weeks away, we’re looking to send some of the most creative people from our community to cover fashion week on our behalf.

Last February, we were amazed at the incredible coverage from the 24 Tumblr bloggers at fashion week and I can’t wait to see what happens in…

Anonymous asked: how do you avoid paying retail?

Hi! There are definitely instances where we have to pay retail (and some stores we’re more OK paying retail for, like Uniqlo—since their prices are already very reasonable/less inflated), but in general, we shop at a lot of sample sales, and head straight to the sale section of stores (typically in the back). When buying online, we also search for coupon codes (or at least a free shipping code!), or we wait for sales and promotions, which typically occur around holidays. Hope that helps!

In LA! Stopped by the Century City shopping center on Saturday and found the sun prints cluster necklace on sale at Madewell for only $7 plus tax! Check out your local stores for even better deals than online, per usual =)

Valentino Rosette Chain Strap pouch - Saw maybe 10 of these yesterday at Saks Fifth Ave for $170 before tax! (And spotted maybe 2 or 3 of them in red.) Had to pass because I don’t even think my phone would fit in it…but the leather was oh-so-buttery soft. mmmm
