Fashionistas, you know your dirty little secret. The secret addiction you keep to yourself as you sip your morning coffee and discuss the merits of the next Presidential Election and the multi-trillion dollar deficit created by the American government. Yes, you know watching the news and keeping up to date on the happenings of the world is important and as you discuss them with coworkers or the other moms in your mommy and me yoga class you wonder how many other women harbor the same secret addiction: that the most important foreign policy in your mind is what Prince William and Princess Kate wore to last night’s charity event and the biggest deficit you worry about is the one your husband is going to see when he opens the Amex bill that includes last month’s Jimmy Choo shopping spree.
Don’t be ashamed. There’s nothing wrong with considering the news where Kim Kardashian found the dress she wore to that one place in that one photo you saw online and only watching “real” news because it’s the responsible – albeit often boring and depressing – and adult thing to do.
Now, focus. The important news today is something that is going to make the rest of your life more fabulous than ever; or at least how you look the rest of your life will be more fabulous than ever. Those gorgeous dresses, fabulous designer shoes and amazing handbags you ogle on every celebrity red carpet are no longer out of your price range. Always lusted after a Badgley Mischka sequin dress or a pair of Gucci pumps? How about those 7 for All Mankind skinny jeans you’ve been lusting after for months? Good news ladies, those items are now in your budget thanks to Saks 5th Avenue. Tampa fashionista’s know that the nearest Saks in located in Westshore Plaza but did you know that signing up for Saks emails online, something that takes about 30 seconds, now saves you up to 70% off your favorite designer duds?
