E V E N T • Le Garage, Austin TX

Le Garage,  it only happens twice a year for one weekend only.   It’s a MUST for the fashion fiend on a budget.  I discovered the illustrious women of Herff Christiansen there and walked out with 5 articles of clothing for a pretty (inexpensive) penny.  I scored a Marnie Bugs bag for $15 that was regularly priced at $400!  My man scored an entire wardrobe change for about $100 from Service Menswear – I’m talking $5 designer t-shirts.

HOW IN THE HECK DO THEY DO THAT?  It’s the past season’s merchandise!  Um, brilliant?  Austin, with it’s boutique nature, doesn’t carry the square footage to hold a rack of past seasons merchandise – they’ve got to cut their losses and open some dollars up to buy for more current trends and fashions, which translates to super sales for us!  50% – 90% off beautiful clothing – my favorite spots to visit – By George, Estilo, and Service Menswear.

TIPS TO ROCK IT TO THE MAX?

1).  Wear pretty underwear – you may find yourself whipping off your clothes in front of many many people and into that pretty/sexy/must-have dress/skirt/jeans.  Don’t be afraid – pretend you’re in Europe for the day.

2).  Set a budget – You will want to set a limit for yourself, the goods are just too fabulous to walk away from with an open pocketbook.

3).  Bring CASH – It’s quick and it’s easy to track.

4).  Breathe.  No seriously, I hyperventilate for the first 30 minutes from excitement and sensory overload.  Lots of people and lots of gorgeous gorgeous clothing, footwear and accessories.

5).  Bring a buddy – this buddy will be a lifesaver – well, someone has to hold your purse, shoes, new bags of goodies and other garments flung off in excitement when reaching for the next.  A second opinion is always nice too, although, if you don’t make it with a buddy – there are lots of lovely fashionable ladies that won’t hesitate to give a good opinion.

Good luck ladies!  Hope to see you there!
