Sorry for the delay, folks. As you may have heard, we've been busy over here at the EBX dealing with our newly independent status, which meant our shopping habit got (sob) put on hold. But now that we've saved up (at least $30) - and summer's apparently arrived - it's time for more fabulous bargain shopping in the East Bay! This week, we bring you a bevy of sales (from brand name to vintage), a blissful online store for shoe lovers, and some tips for keeping your crap at a minimum. Also, we scour the Web so you don't have to, with a roundup of what local fashion bloggers are talking about. And we tackle the toughest of all manufactured shopping holidays: Father's Day.
Paying for Your Shoe Obsession In case you haven't discovered it yet, the Amazon.com-built Endless.com is a shoe (and handbag) lover's dream. First: a near endless choice of styles and brands (think the kind you'd find at Macy's). Second: overnight shipping that subtracts $5 from your order. And best of all: a 365-day return policy (and they pay for return shipping). Now if that's not an incentive to buy something from this site, I don't know what is! And now's a perfect time since they're currently having a half-off sale. We scored these super-sexy stiletto patent mary janes for about $60 (orig. $225)!
Cute Yoga Apparel Anyone? Lululemon athletica celebrates the grand opening of its Berkeley store this weekend. The first 50 guests to enter the new yoga apparel store on Saturday June 16 and Sunday June 17 will receive complimentary yoga kits, yoga mat, and passes to a local studio. Lululemon takes over the seemingly ill-fated location of Ashby and College avenues. Let's hope they can last! When: Sat., June 16 & Sun. June 17. Grand Opening celebration is Thurs., June 21 from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. Where: 2956 College Ave., Berkeley
What to Get Dear Ol' Dad?
Don't know about you, but when it comes to Father's Day gifts, it's near impossible to give anything I'd actually want him to have. The Chron also laments this problem. So what's on your list?
b) Old Spice gift set
c) Subscription to Blade Magazine
d) Something golf-related
f) Beard trimmer
g) Nose-hair trimmer
h) Beer-belly trimmer (we wish!)
