My favorite shopping gal pal and I were walking in the winter wonderland aka The Grove in Los Angeles. Every store is practically having a fire sale and Arden B. was no exception. The sign in the window read buy anything in the store get the second item for $5 bucks. Of course we had to go in. I was shocked and awed by how far this store has fallen from grace. Five years ago, Arden B.'s clothes were elegant and chic, now they've fallen face first down the side of godawful mountain. About 95 percent of what they were trying to give away was still hanging on the racks, they can't give it away. They were a couple of shining moments tucked away on the side of the store. A striking gold sequin dress and a perky red taffeta rose dress! Both stunning and perfect for the holidays, oh and New Year's. I would totally wear the gold sequin for New Year's Eve. It just goes to show even the midst of a fashion abyss, tragic stores such as Arden B. might be worth a look see.
