Outlet Malls

I know what you're thinking ... outlet malls? Really? Trust us, outlet malls can be a fashionistas dream!
Think of it as an amusement park for clothes.
Outlet malls sometimes get a bad rep, maybe you consider them to be a breeding ground for grandmothers and tourists..
and truth be told, sometimes they are.
Here's what you don't know, from A-Z outlet malls have your designers covered.
Balenciaga, Gucci, Saint Laurent, and Prada. Just a few magical brands housed by Premium Outlets.
OH, not to mention department store outlets like Barney's New York & Saks Fifth Avenue.
Now, doesn't that sound like a real amusement park?! Oops, forgot to mention the best part ... it's all discounted!
Yes! Designer bags, shoes, clothes and accessories at discounted prices!
Depending on the store and location, a fashionista can score some pretty major ensembles!
Many stores carry "made for outlet" merchandise, meaning you can't find it in the flagship stores, only outlets carry them.
Prime example, Michael Kors, the designer has his Runway Collection and Lifestyle Collection which splits in two.
The Lifestyle Collection has its Lifestyle store, and outlet lifestyle stores.
The outlet store has specially "made for outlet" merchandise, but sometimes carries Lifestyle Collection (normal store) in the outlets.
Seriously, that's two totally different collections from the same designer!
So many other designer brands do the exact same thing!
Fashionistas, shopping for designer items is always a hunt, outlet malls have made that just an teensy bit easier.

You're trying to hard

Why you shouldn't wear hooker heels at 9 am
Do you ever get that acid taste in your mouth when you see a woman or even a man, that is, to put it simply, trying to hard?
A definite belief of The Concept Blog, is that, effortlessly cool, I just got out of bed and I look amazing type of style.
Unfortunately, we can't all be Kate Moss.
We salute those brave souls who put on the daily, unrecommended, 10plus pounds of makeup.
We begrudgingly give you an A for effort. Only because its so plainly obvious that you actually tried.
But... Try as you might, you do not succeed.
You see when its 9am, and you decide to wear, what looks to be like a strippers, stripping outfit,
you're trying to hard.
Don't get me wrong.. you should absolutely put in effort when you plan an outfit,
but please, there is a time & place for everything.
That 9am, Ethics 101 class, is not the time for 6 inch heels and a mini dress.
Leave the the 6 inchers and mini dresses where they belong, with hookers and Courtney Stodden.
Keep it classy, and just a little bit sassy. Let your confidence be the proverbial mini dress.
Be cool and don't try so hard, at least don't look like you are.
