With the introduction of capsule collections and designer colabarations, many mass department retailers are really trying to increase their spot as a go-to place to find to get trendy clothes at affordable prices. Lately, Wal-Mart has really been trying to break through tp fashionistas and recessionistas wallets by offering trendier clothes and vast beauty and makeup lines with exclusive lines with Norma Kamali and carrying cosmetic line Hard Candy.
Now, Wal-mart is trying to get more exposure to their beauty and fashion departments via Social Networks like FaceBook and Twitter. Also, they have created a new program called Get The Look, which showcases beauty and fashion looks at an affordable price and, of course, can be found at Wal-Mart and WalMart.com.
They have kicked off the program with a Norma Kamali All-In-One dress, which I included in this month’s Lust-Have list. They also mention which Hard Candy make-up and accessories you should use to complete the look. CHERRY ON TOP ALERT: The whole look is UNDER $50! Can’t beat that!
To see the first look featuring the Norma Kamali dress, check out Wal-Mart.com Get The Look page.
I love when some of my favorite fashion lines launch e-commerce sites, because I get to avoid scrounging around various sites trying to find a certain item from a specific designers’ collection. Personally, I like to go straight to the source and eliminate the middle man!
The latest line that has launched an e-commerce site is alice + olivia, which I swoon hardcore over! However, this e-commerce site is not your usual online shopping experience of grabbing what you want and bouncing. No, no! At alice + oliva’s site, you can get a behind the scenes look at the designing process of designer and founder, Stacey Bendet. Also, you can get more personal with the brand and the people behind it thanks in part to their blog and Twitter accounts that will keep you up to date with new collections, dates, and all the alice + olivia news you need to know!
So, go checkout alice + olivia online!
