So with all the madness door buster sales and black Friday hot mess time, well its really time to fight for the little guy. the small company that cant really afford to give it to you for free. But back in the day all the big companies were small business that really were the start of someone dream and fight to create a better life for them and their family. So Please I know its a little late but if you can and per chance able please go buy something from a mum and pop store or company. If you don't know a great little guy store I have the site for you. Which is one of my favorite store / websites. Its called Etsy.com many many people whom and little hobbies or a passion for something. Or just wanted to create their small business and didn't want to go balls to the wall and start their company. One can literally find almost everything they want that is homemade or vintage and they make sure its real vintage. I have ordered things like scarfs, jewelry, candles, stuffed animals, and clothes. This site is amazing because it can help step by step and chat room on how to create and strengthen ones home business. So if you have a dream or want to help out the little guy give Etsy a look and help a small business out.
Here is actually my store but not to self promote myself, but serously please give this site a look and maybe help someone sell something they love and took blood sweat and tears to make. Love Kitsune63
On my way over to thanksgiving dinner tonight we drove past a best buy and saw a line with people sleeping in tent just to get to the Am Thursday sale which is before black Friday. I work in retail currently and while I was in college I did also yes I had a couple of year off working in the real world. And I have always hated, hated black Friday I though it was nuts that people went out of their way destroying a perfectly good day off and night to spend with family looking for a deal. I can only think of those poor souls how are forced to give up time with family that they maybe don't see often. Because unlike alot of America families we eat late at night on thanksgiving because we take all day and some of the evening cooking and actually enjoying each others company. I think this year starting the retail madness on Thursday evening is sad, yes this is a blog dedicated to fashion but it hard to see many people give up time with loved one so someone can score a good deal on a TV. I understand people cant afford to spend alot this year because we are still in hard times but for the love of god figure it out in different ways, I for one am going to be baking alot of gifts for friends and creating gifts on a budget. God knows I love you target but you kind of have pissed me off with this Thursday night madness. Which know this if you have not worked in retail at least once in your life, people in stores can tell because you tend to mess up more things in a store them some one who has walking in those retail shoe and five year from now I will be grateful I have worked in retail because it taught me a sense of respect and a new set of manners. Just and FYI bitches....
So we have all seen the Kim Kardashian shoe dazzle which is a shoe club of the month, But this is much better in my book its a shirt club of the month created by Ashley and Mary kate Olsen which we all know those two at least went to college and studied fashion and have done some actual work instead of making it big of mummy and daddy. But Any the site is called StyleMint.com the site is fairly simple.
Here are how it works from the site....so read the Gossip

So I come from an Air force family and my hero and best
friend is also in the military my husband. My brother is in the Air force and
is currently deployed to ( well I cant say) loose lips sink ship was a famous
saying in WW II. Many of my good friends have deployed and since they are
willing to give up everything they have even their lives for a greater cause I
feel we always have to show our support and compassion for their sacrifice. I
know many of fashion show and lines have had many inspired looks based on
military uniform. With fitted Blazers, as well as gold disk on a soldier Class
A designers have used gold button to mimic these disk. This is worn by the back
bone of the enlisted in the military as well as Shoulder boards which is worn
by the Officers. I have given a
fashion nod to our Veterans time to send the Troops some support!
IF you would like to send a Care package to a Solider here
are some items they would love to get from anyone,
·Energy Bars (Power Bar, etc. - Unless
a specific brand is requested, much better than standard civilian energy bars
are the "HOOAH!"
brand energy bar based on the U.S. military's own specially formulated bar
that better meets the soliers' needs)
·Hot Sauce (Tabasco,
Red Devil, etc.) - wrap glass bottle in duct tape and place in doubled zip-lock
·Seasoning Salt (Lawry's, etc.)
·Atomic Fireballs / Jolly Rancher hard candy
(for service member use)
·Smarties or SweetTart candies (for local
children who prefer sour style candy to build relationships with community)
Snuff in a tin A large
percentage of infantry use this stuff and it is hard to get. The stuff they do
get comes in a plastic can and tastes terrible. The 'Stateside Hagen' is the
most powerful bargaining tool in a field environment!
·Pre-paid Phone Card so service member can
Veterans of Foreign Wars operates Operation Uplink
which sends free prepaid phone cards to service members. On the Operation Uplink
site you can request a card for a specific service member or make a donation to
If you do not want to buy these item your self and can do this The USO
operates "Operation USO Care Package"
which takes your $25 donation and sends a care package and your personal note
to a randomly selected deployed service member.
Those who would like to simply send a message of support to a randomly
selected deployed service member may do so via Operation Dear Abby.
I really hope my dear readers think of the Vets and active
military today, as well as look at what you can do for those that are willing
to give up everything for someone else.
Hautelook.com Why because its the best of both worlds, its not the slowest of the sample sale website. But its not the fastest the fastest is Ideeli. I cant lie every time I have ordered something in a hurry like a last minute gift it has gotten to me on time and it didnt take over a month to get to me. If you order anything from Beyond the rack you can expect that it will take a very long time like over a month. Which is not a huge problem in my case I ordered a pair riding boots and they have just shipped. So if you are in a hurry Ideeli is your best bet. If your okay with waiting a little bit but not too much Haute look is your friend also they are still my favorite because they something called Blowout sales which is like a normal sale but with better prices I know Ideeli has something called Red sales but if your a in their preferred customer then you get those sales first if not your second best ( which FYI on Ideeli you have to pay to be ca preferred customer as well) I just thought of sharing my experance of these sales with you guys. Also Haute look has more sales of designers and companies I love unlike the others. So shipping does depend on the company but, the one you will love the most has sales of shoes, bag, and clothes you love the most.
Well It Kim's high profile marriage and not surprised divorce wasn't a shocker to anyone this might be a bit more shocking. So the three famous sister whom are famous for doing nothing much like the Jersey Shore. Are of course taking it for all its worth to the bank and creating a crappy " fashion line" because we all know they study fashion at college or can sew, draw, or even create a line that with out the help of someone else. We all know these girls get their fashion sense from the people they hire like stylist that work their tales off.
Kardashians' versions of some of the world's most knocked-off bags:
Balenciaga's "Part Time," Chloé's "Marcie," and Foley + Corinna's "City
Bag." Earlier this year, the Kardashian Kollection knocked off a well-known Botkier bag.
As someone who did go to design school and that spends hour and hours looking at look books and trying to learn the fine art of fashion Yes I understand rules are meant to be broken but when you are famous for doing nothing then you try to create something and god know you are not doing the back breaking work of creating something you are slapping you name on and it and taking the credit because if you were creating this line from scratch you would understand the hate and hurt you create when you make fake handbags...well got some new for you Kardashian those of us that love fashion and really love it. We know you are all full of crap...
