6 p.m. Discount Brand Clothing

Have you heard of 6pm.com? It’s a website that sells expensive name brand at around a 60% discount from the MSRP. Sometimes I think it’s pricey, I still couldn’t afford to shop there regularly. But if you have a special engagement and want to show up wearing a $500 dress that you only paid $100 for, well, it’s a possibility. My picks:

French Connection Wizard Cotton Dress
$47.60, MSRP $148

Michael Kors Tweed Kimono Dress
$71.50, MSRP $130

Roxy Newland Dress (Yes, I realize Roxy is a high school brand and there’s a good chance this dress will not cover my rear.)
$15.58, MSRP $44.50

Laundry by Shelli Segal Sleeveless Pleated Party Dress
$115.09, MSRP $295
This one is probably my favorite.

Betsey Johnson Bathing Beauties Trapeze Dress
$54.90, MSRP $265

HUGO Hugo Boss Korina Dress in Periwinkle
$102.60, MSRP $525

I know most of my male friends bleed Diesel clothing, which they have a nice selection of. Also, this is a haven for all things accessories and shoes. I think I’ll splurge on a new pair of Nike running shoes soon.

I try to never pay full price for anything.

the weekender: new year’s eve dress edition


It’s already New Year’s Eve. Everything about it is so overwhelming.

2010 Recaps:
Graduating and officially starting my life
Being fortunate enough to find a job I love right out of college
Going to Portland with my best friend
Serving as editor of The Yeti and publishing its first issue in years
Starting a running club – one of the hardest things I’ve ever done
Being with my boyfriend, who makes me happy every day of my life
Starting this blog, which was terrifying

I’ll work on my 2011 goals in another post.

Until then here are some gorgeous dresses to drool over. I wish I was wearing these tonight (all @ Modcloth).

Here are some cheaper, skimpier dresses from F21. They had a lot more New Year’s Glitz.

Have a Happy New Year everyone!
