To celebrate its first anniversary, theOutnet.com is throwing a very special birthday party. For one day only, April 16, the chic online fashion outlet will host a pop-up sale where all items will be sold at the giveaway price of $1!
This has to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Thousands of products — including ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, and accessories — from the 200-plus brands available at theOutnet.com will be $1 while stock lasts. All you need to do to gain entry is register at theOutnet.com and RSVP between March 29 and April 11.
But wait, that's not all! There will be a "golden ticket" — selected at random from those who have RSVP'd — that will allow one lucky person the chance to preview and shop the sale before anyone else. They’ll have the opportunity to work with an Outnet stylist to pick a fabulous outfit — five pieces — for a grand total of $5!
Register at theOutnet.com/birthday for more information and to RSVP to the most fashionable fashion party.
Many women color their hair, but men generally seem more resistant to doing so. (When's the last time you saw a guy in a colorist's chair?) Of course, some dudes can't resist the lure of making a change, but it seems like relatively few men take risks with their hair color. Whether on a star like Nic or a gent in your life, what's your take on guys who dye?
In news both adorable and ridiculous, an 82-year-old Michigan woman crashed her car through a salon's storefront, causing major damage. While the debris was being cleaned up, she still managed to keep her hair appointment. The Blublockers-sporting car crasher, Marion Zock, says she was embarrassed, but everyone around her seemed to find the accident charming. The salon's owner defended Zock by saying that the parking spot she was trying to get into is tricky, and even a mustachioed sheriff was absurdly nice about the whole thing.
To make this story even quirkier, this is not the first time a car has crashed through the storefront — a similar incident occurred a few years back. If this happened at your salon, do you think the owner and staff would be as understanding? (And if you were the driver in question, would you stick around to get your hair done?)
Will the decorative soap innovations never cease? Besides having amazing specimens that look like baked goods and Easter candy, now they're making disturbingly realistic soaps that look just like your favorite semi-precious stones. Can you tell which of these rocks is the real thing, and which are squeaky-clean glycerine impostors? Take my quiz to find out.
