Hot Summer Sales!

Summertime is not only for the beach, barbeques and vacations (or being in an air conditioned office all day!) but a time to experience shopping at its absolute best. The transition that retail stores make from the summer to Fall/Winter lines presents an array of opportunities to fill your closet with pieces that can carry over through to next spring, or perhaps even your upcoming winter vacation to a sunny spot.
