We’ve all been there—that last minute engagement where we need something different, something unique, something that will have us stand apart from the crowd – but with no time to waste in and out of dressing rooms. Where can you turn to get that item NOW? Spiegel.com. If the name rings a bell, it’s because it was THE shi-shi site of when you were a kid—I remember poring through the catalog when it would arrive in the mailbox. Well, it’s no longer your mom’s site, it’s yours. With cutting edge trends, at sale prices you wouldn’t believe, you’ll love perusing their fabulous finds.
I love the crisp pictures (it makes it very easy to see the detail on the item you’re looking to purchase) and the Editor’s Note, which talks about the piece, and how it can be worn best. I was coveting a sequined tank dress, but figured I would have no occasion to wear it. Not so, said the Editor’s Note–“It’s a perfect party choice with strappy sandals and a simple evening clutch.” Makes it sound so easy to wear, you want to throw it on for your next soiree with the girls, doesn’t it?
From dresses to shoes to jewelry (made in the good ol’ US of A), Spiegel has you covered (no pun intended). They even have “shape wear” in their basic clothes—no need for control top undergarments here. But what I fell for was the bathing suits. I have a thing for suits which take me back to the 1950’s—suits which I can envision wearing next to the pool in Palm Springs, drink in hand. Spiegel fulfills that fantasy with the most adorable, retro inspired suits. And for those of you who don’t have fantasies about a bygone era, they have super cute bathing suits for you too. Whether you’re looking for a one piece or a two piece, hi or lo cut, they’ve got what you want.
So go on, take a look at the new Spiegel now—if its school picks up or date night, you’ll be the best dressed gal out.
