HipCandy posted a video from MSNBC of their holiday stylings under one hundred dollars. Bangles and H&M dresses are apparently all the rage.
You know the drill, you start holiday shopping well-enough in advance, crossing everyone off your list, until it's two days before Christmas and you've yet to get your beloved boyfriend/fiancee/husband something to unwrap. Well, ladies, if he gives you any trouble remind him that the best things come last and promptly check out our shortlist of great gifts for him. Check out each picture for pricing information and where to buy. Some items featured are more than 50% off!
This weekend marked the opening of the first brick and mortar store for Missoni in London and the light-filled, three-story boutique is sure to tempt the fashionable London set. The new store, located on London's famous Sloane Street (also home to Louis Vuttion, Liberty, Marni, Prada and the like), houses Missoni's womenswear and menswear collections as well as the home range.
This Spring, Missoni showed a women's collection rich with texture and moody with monochromatic shades of green. To see the Spring 2009 Missoni womenswear collection, click here. To read more about the new London shop, click here.
The Missoni Fall 2009 menswear runway show will be held the afternoon on the first day of the Milan menswear shows, this January 17th.
We love a monochromatic look and this one, as was part of the Obedient Sons & Daughters Spring 2009 collection, tops our list. We love the boyishness of this buttoned up shirt, especially because it's paired with sexy platform sandals. Above, some alternative options to get this look now at a slightly lower price point--although, we wouldn't blame you if you waited for the real thing.
It was recently announced that Bill Blass would be officially closing and now the remains of this season are cropping up on the sample sale website Gilt Groupe. This sleeveless scoop neck dress (left) was originally priced at over three thousand dollars and the sale, which went live today at noon EST, is offering it for only $398.

It's that time of year again, when our desire to be fashionable takes a backseat to our cold ears, fingers, and toes. There are, of course, warm options that are still quite affordable and chic--though you may not call them runway-ready. Our favorites places to find warm outerwear on the cheap? Penfield, the company who probably makes your boyfriend's flannel makes one warm winter coat--this Grey Novi Coat is worth the $200. Topshop has an entire range of winter sport-ready garments, called SNO, and this Ski All-In-One for $310 is our favorite because it looks like a sleeping bag with sleeves. The Gap has had affordable puffer coats for as long as we can remember and this Shiny Puffer Coat for $39.99 is a modern take on their classic. It might be midseason and you might want to save your cash for all of the great sale items available online, but there's no need to do it in the cold!
With so many markdowns to wade through, there's no telling who will score the unbelievable offers and who will walk home with an ill-fitting dress or an unwanted pair of shoes. Something tells us that every single one of us has landed on both sides of that fence and, that said, we think research is the common denominator. Below, our round up of the ten best deals online right now--they might land on the safe side but we think that's what makes them must-haves. Pricing information and where to buy below each picture.
