Bargain Shopping, Techie Style January 20, 2009

(This article is excerpted from a really amazing indie fashion site I stumbled upon recently: the iFashion Network. Put this blog on your must-read feed!)

Bargain Shopping, Techie Style
By Catherine Shen

Your boss walks into the office and sees you typing industriously on your keyboard. He gives you a “thumbs up” and smiles encouragingly, then goes off to yell at your co-workers.

Don’t lie. It’s okay, I won’t tell that you’re really shopping online for the next bargain. And what’s a better time than the downtime at work (not that I condone this sort of behavior…ever)?

Check out Etsy.com, a website that focuses entirely on homemade clothing and accessories. You want to stand out, have something no one else has. This is the place to go. It screams out chic vintage in every item – definitely worth your work time. I especially love their flower brooches: very modern, and it doesn’t remind me of my grandmother, which is always a plus.

Designers don’t come cheap, that’s why chickdowntown.com offers designers at slashed prices. At times like these, perhaps giving this site a few clicks will save more than spend (don’t we all wish)? From Marc Jacobs to Juicy Couture, there is something for everyone with prices we can all afford.
