Crown Outlets, Alexander McQueen and Wikifashion

What is the greatest find for those who are looking to buy more for less? Any store or event that includes the word “outlet”! Luckily, Crowne Plaza in Hamra (the hotel that Roadsters is in) is giving us just that, for 3 days.

The clothes that are going to be available are from the spring summer collections, and include brands like:
  •          Bebe
  •         Fred Perry
  •          Hollister-California
  •          Juicy Couture
  •          Ed Hardy
  •          Christian Audigier
  •          Abercrombie & Fitch
  •          True Religion

They guarantee prices of at least 50% less than the original price. The open house will be taking place in Crowne Plaza Hotel (1st floor) on Friday 30th April (11am – 10pm), Saturday 1st May (11am – 10pm), and Sunday 2nd May (11am – 7pm).

Remember, this is an open house event, not a store. So if anyone is interested, make sure you catch it on any of the three dates. I think it would be interesting to look around and see. The beauty of shopping is that even in a sea of clothes that could never be worn there will always be that one piece that fits you perfectly. So go check it out!

I have 2 news items before I end. The first is a sneak peek at Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2010 shoes, only 3 of them are being shown, but they are definitely worth the look. As usual his genius came into play when designing these shoes, it’s so sad to know that his designs came to an end so soon. Here are the shoes. (Thank you for bringing this to my attention, you know who you are!)

The other piece of news is this: Wikifashion.

I’m sure just about everybody in the world is familiar with Wikipedia. Well, now we have something called Wikifashion! To quote the main page would be the perfect way to explain what this site is here for:

“Wikifashion is a project created for and by the fashion community. It is where you can find and catalogue anything fashion related, such as blogs, style icons, brands, and magazines. You can start contributing or editing existing articles by creating an account.”

So, to all the other fashion bloggers or fashion followers, if you would like to see this unlimited supply of fashion resources, sign up and contribute a little. A little bit from everyone will eventually build one of the best fashion encyclopedias online!

And finally, here is yesterday’s outfit!

Sweater: Warehouse
Top: Topshop
Pants: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Sport et Loisir
Watch: Toy Watch
Bracelet: Cream

clothes are always necessary."
