Not Too Late to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The one time a diva should not try to get the best deal is when giving towards a deserving cause. Though Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2007 is almost over, it is not too late to purchase some products whose proceeds go towards awareness, prevention and cures for this sometimes deadly disease. Take a look at some of my favorites and show your support!

This Weekend: Lucky Shops NYC!

This weekend Lucky Magazine is hosting Lucky Shops - a fabulous shopping event with TONS of designer items for up to 70% off (check out the designer list)! Though I have never attended myself, it sounds absolutely fabulous! It gets better: this is a charity event! This year's charity partner is Baby Buggy.

And, not only will you get great discounted designer items, they will also have music, cocktails and fun gift bags!

Here's an excerpt from

FIRST DIBS FRIDAY - Friday, October 26, 12 pm - 7 pm:
$75 in advance, $85 at the door (while supplies last)*

Get first crack at the goods. There will be fewer shoppers, more shopping, and more chances to get what you love before anyone else. Plus, you’ll get complimentary cocktails, a FREE gift bag ($100+ value!), special offers and more**.

SATURDAY SHOP-A-THON - Saturday, October 27, 10 am - 7 pm:
$40 in advance, $45 at the door
Think you’ve got the stamina? Come in early and shop all day. Prices will be dropping, and we’ll be refreshing stock throughout the event (really!), so you won’t miss a thing. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday! Don’t forget the discounts, offers and your FREE gift bag (100+ value, while supplies last)!
Purchase tickets to Lucky Shops here.

Thanks, Lucky!

The Bombay Company's Going out of Business!

Sad for them, sales for us! Unfortunately the Bombay Company recently announced its bankruptcy. As a result, the company has decided to close all U.S. locations (Canadian locations will remain open). The U.S. stores will stay open throughout the holiday season but look for the major sales right around the 1st of the year.

I checked out their site to see if there were any major sales yet, to no avail. Make sure to check out their clearance section often, though, as I am sure they will be liquidating a lot of their items very soon.

For more information about The Bombay Company's store closings, check out this article on

Update: has already shut down! You will have to check out the sales at your local stores.

What Every Woman Needs: A Hot Clutch

Payless continues to give itself a facelift. I saw this sleek red patent leather clutch today for just $14.99. What I love about this clutch is not only that it is sleek and in one of the season's hottest materials, but also that it can totally transform an outfit. Imagine some black leggings and black satin mod dress with this bag and some hot red shoes. Or maybe even that little black dress, an understated red bracelet and some red matte lipstick. Priceless! By the way, the clutch also comes in black.

Update: if you don't like patent leather and would rather go with faux lizard skin, for $20 more eBags has this Prezzo frame clutch that comes in black, red, blue and mustard. Fabulous!

Couture Line by Forever 21

Forever 21 started a new line called Twelve by Twelve and talk about some cute items! What does "Couture by Forever 21" mean, you ask? It means slightly higher prices than regular Forever 21 clothing but in very fashion forward styles. Here are a few of my faves:
