The Aisle New York’s Flash Sale Scam

The Aisle New York's Flash Sale Scam

New flash sale sites are popping up these days as quickly as all the pretty flowers this Spring. But just as much as those flowers are giving me terrible allergies and making me want to stay inside at all times, flash sales often make me want to run in the other direction.

For starters, flash sales tap into all of the guilt, emotional turmoil and joy involved in shopping and then turn up the dial with a clock quickly ticking away, forcing you into impulse purchases of often very expensive items. Then there’s the competition of other shoppers frantically clicking away at the products you actually want, threatening to sweep them out of your grasp if you take too long to hit the purchase button.

It’s all a great way to get shoppers to spend money. But it’s not always great for the people doing the purchasing. And the prices on these sites are not always the bargain they claim. Take the above example. Why would you spend $99 on a purse that retails for $55? More »

Geren Ford Sale on Gilt Groupe

Geren Ford Sale on Gilt Groupe

You can get this Geren Ford Red Tunic Dress today on Gilt.com. We think it’s perfect for fall, and here’s why.

Even if you’re not the sort of person who usually wears red, this shade is not too bright and showy for everyday, and the 3/4 length sleeves make it interesting. Plus, you can get a ton of wear out of it, as the dress works in a variety of styles. A belt can transform the silhouette for an entirely different look. Use the boat neckline to display a great statement necklace and pair with simple pumps. The style of this dress also lends itself well to layering. There is no better time to break out a big faux fur vest to add warmth. These pieces fit perfectly together, and don’t forget a pair of cool shades to top it off. More »
