Additional 20% off at Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters

This is probably the first time I’ve featured a deal from this retailer. I know they have sales, but maybe I didn’t feature them in the past because the sales weren’t the greatest? Who knows? Anyway, this is a great deal because it’s on already reduced items for sale. For example, the top featured above is $20. That’s marked down twice from its original price of $28. So click here and get in on the sale.


50% off at Lucky Jeans

Lucky Jeans

Lucky Jeans is having a fantabulous (i’m sorry that I just used that word) sale. The downside is that it ends today (6/28), the upside is that you are reading this right now and can get in on the sale. I picked up the hot little number you see above. There are plenty of great styles to choose from, so get yours now.


20% off at Ice + Free Shipping


You can never have too much jewelry..ok, you really can, but when you figure you’re not paying a whole lot, jewelry becomes a necessity. A quick example of this is’s deal that runs through August 31st 2007. You will get 20% off your complete order + free shipping. I’m not going to even attempt to beat that deal.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

As I was doing my daily internet window shopping, I came upon this dress dress
on the
Forever 21
website. The dress seemed oddly familiar to me. And I realized I had seen it somewhere before. Then it hit me. It was a dead ringer for this Proenza Schouler bustier dress

from their Target line.

By no means am I criticizing Forever 21 for selling such a dress that is so obviously “inspired” by Proenza Schouler, I for one am all for the designer look for less (being the Thriftychick and all). But it brought to mind the pending law suit Diane Von Furstenberg has against Forever 21 in regards to the this Chloe Medallion inspired dress. Whew, that’s a mouthful.

forever dress

In the photos, the differences are minimal. Needless to say, after the law suit was filed, the dress could no longer be found on the racks at Forever 21.

Not that the law suit has had any effect on sales at Forever 21. Whenever I enter that store, with the shoppers ranging in age from twelve to women in their mid fifties (and to think I felt guilty about still shopping there, being that I am long past 21), the Forever fervor seems strongly in place.

Seems like I’m not the only one who can resist a bargain!

Must Haves

It’s hot out

It”s hot out, really hot. The kind of hot that suffocates you when you walk outside. Be a mirage in your urban desert with this bright colored cotton sun dress from Charlotte Russe. The dress fits and flares in all the right areas. Add a little cardigan, and viola, you can wear it to work!
