TheProwl.com looks a bit like Pinterest, and that may well be on purpose. Unlike Pinterest, The Prowl has a focus: its unique "Ask and Answer" section encourages you to employ the brains of others to find deals and make better fashion decisions than most mere humans with jobs and lives ever could. So while Pinterest is a great place to obsess over the infinite aspirational scroll, The Prowl is for paring down possibilities, and making a purchase. In contrast to Pinterest and related sites like The Hunt, which largely market themselves to the female demo, The Prowl's pragmatic approach to commerce can be appreciated by the most shopping-phobic individuals of any gender.
If you want to save big on clothes shopping, then you need to buy out of season. By thinking long term with your choice of fashions and clothing purchases, you can make your wardrobe last longer. It is possible to expand your overall clothing selection and accessorize without always replacing your entire annual wardrobe. If you do this right, it can also be a real boost to your clothing budget.
Shorts are having their day in the sun this Summer 2011 and I couldn't be more excited. For years shorts have been two styles: straight and long a la Bermudas, or short and very difficult to wear unless you have a perfect body. Not this season, where shorts are available in every length, fabric and silhouette imaginable. There is a style of shorts that is perfect for every woman this summer.
Spring is in the air: The days are longer, the birds are chirping, and we're switching from wool and tweed to cotton and linen. It's important to properly store your winter wardrobe so it maintains its quality and shape for when the cooler weather returns.
Last month department store Nordstrom made news by purchasing HauteLook, an online invitation-only shopping site, for $180 million. Nordstrom stated, "We know the way our customers shop for fashion is changing rapidly. HauteLook provides a platform of speed, capability and innovation to support our customer-driven strategy."
This is huge news, and proof that invitation-only online boutiques aren't going anywhere--in fact they are gaining popularity and clout.
