The Voice of WIC

Shop and Never Drop November 15, 2007

Filed under: Fashion — NYU WIC @ 7:32 pm

Now that the temperature has dropped, we’re feeling less and less inclined to step outside and brave the cold. So when we’re in need of some retail therapy, we half-heartedly reach for our wool coats… and then we remember. It’s the 21st century, baby! Why suffer the chill when you can indulge that shopping addiction from the comfort of your own home? Here we reveal some of our favorite online shopping destinations that will keep you warm all winter long.

Unique, quirky-cool, and inexpensive… what more could a girl ask for? Featuring everything from clothing and accessories to stocking stuffers, this site is great for finding that one-of-a-kind gift that doesn’t break the budget. watches-new.jpg

            

           

We love:
Improve your Japanese and never be late again! These Japanese talking watches ($20.00) tell you the time in their native tongue. Plus, they come in the coolest pops of color.

Day-lab.com offers distinctive jewelry, accessories, paper goods, and novelties. This site runs the gamut from the mainstream (xxxx) to the exclusive (a single vintage Oscar de la Renta scarf for $12.00). One click takes you from faux leather bags reminiscent of the Dior saddle bag to delicately-wrought snowflake earrings.

We love:
These solid gold initial necklaces ($20.00) have a fantastic vintage vibe, but are still somehow so of-the-moment.

We hate it when we see something irresistible, but impossibly unaffordable in the 5th Avenue windows. That’s when we turn to Bluefly.com, the website which touts itself as “the ultimate hook-up for the fashion obsessed.” Heavily discounted designer clothing, as well as reasonably priced apparel from smaller labels lure us back every time.

We love:
This Romeo & Juliet Couture geometric charmeuse bubble hem dress ($93) is sleek and chic without being winter-drab. The best part? You save more than 40% off of the original retail price of $155.
