So you missed Coachella this year. And you’re not a hipster who needs to spend $400 on that vintage Styx shirt. But, you are Queen of Bohemia, you love to mix patterns, and well you’re on a budget so you need some festival fashion for cheap.
I did a year long test on shopping on Gilt Group searching for affordable bohemian fashion: keyword Free People (the trend setter of Festival Fashion, with $700 floral rompers and floppy hats for $500 . Well I found a surprising secret. You see, Gilt prides itself on its’ flash sales: extreme sales that last about 3 days. So the buyer is pressured into a limited time sale. Well, it turns out some brands can always be found on Gilt’s website. For the past year I have been able to shop Free People brand every month! That’s right, they do so many flash Free People sales, that there is always a small inventory of affordable Festival Fashion via Free People. I scored a $14 red/white adorable dress (retail $250)!
I recommend to use Gilt Group as a normal shopping site where you simply search the brands you like. Become loyal to some brands, and search once a month on Gilt. You’ll be sure to pull up lots of good sales, and you won’t have to buy into the hype of the flash sale.
