Glam Damn It
As the temperatures start to drop in the city, and the leaves start to change color, it reminds us that it's time to update our wardrobes! Many women and men of the city are pressed for time and need to look our best with ease. Joonbug recently checked in with The Shops at Riverside to see the latest trends from some of our favorite stores. There's something to be said about hitting the mall with your besties, picking up fabulous new wardrobe pieces, and hitting a fun restaurant afterwards. Many of the looks are styles you can wear to work and beyond! We love that! Now, let's get to the fashion! Viva la fall!
We stumbled upon an amazing website, and had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren't dreaming. PLNDR.com is an exclusive, members-only online boutique that features collections from websites such as Karmaloop.com and Kazbah.com.
But wait, there's more! The site also hosts an array of limited time sales lasting 48-72 hours that feature all of the cutting-edge clothing brands. If you're wondering what the catch is, there is none. During these sales, you can find items marked up to 80% off . You might as well call it stealing, because that's what it practically is.
Be sure to keep an eye out for promotional codes always displayed on the page, such as, "Buy One, Get One" offers. Be fabulous, be money-smart. Happy Bargaining !

The couple hit the streets, where they were photographed during each day of the fashion event. We break down what they wore and re-create the look for less.

Gladiators everywhere are ecstatic for the long awaited season premiere of Scandal. In addition to Thursday’s premiere, we are pleased to announce that Scandal and Saks Fifth Avenue are becoming a twosome ; the fashion forward store is joining forces with the series on a multi-platform (in-store, on-screen, and online) collaboration to celebrate the show’s star and style icon Olivia Pope ( Kerry Washington). If you are a Scandal fanatic and a fashion buff ,this is an ultimate dream come true. The collaboration is set to launch at an event this coming Wednesday- at the New York Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store. The store’s infamous windows will feature installations created by both Kerry Washington and Scandal costume designer, Lyn Paolo, that include pieces from favorite designers of Olivia Pope–(think Donna Karan meets Giorgio Armani.) Olivia’s infamous line from the show, “It’s handled,” will also appear on the store’s windows. Similar installations will be recreated at Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Beverly Hills, CA and Chevy Chase, MD. If you are nowhere near any of these Saks locations, fear not, you can still follow along with the campaign on social media.
