You Can Always Find It Somewhere Else for Less

Times are hard for the average American these days. So finding the newest fashionable items can be a strain on your bank account. When it comes to the latest fashions I’ve always wondered this: Why buy a 300$ shirt from some top designer when you can find the same shirt from a lesser known brand for a reasonable price? If there’s one thing I’ve learned about commerce is that even if its from a designer label, you can ALWAYS find the same thing for a cheaper price. The other day I went on a bit of a fashion haul to show you what I mean. From cross leggings to spiked headbands, take a look at the items I bought and the comparisons I’ve used from some well known retailers.

Cross leggings: I got theses nifty things from a local store called TParty for 15.00$

Spiked headband: I have a strange obsession with spiked stuff. This headband I got at a store called Hottie is so me. Not only that it was only 7.99!

You see. Bigger buy for your buck. I spent less than 50$ for items that would have cost hundreds somewhere else. Don’t let the recession get you down, there’s a new bargain hunter in town!

Creep Show of the Week: The Scavenger’s Daughter

This is a new feature for Chic Creep we’ll be having a creepy contraption, person, viral entity, and then some. The first creepshow is the Scavengers Daughter.

20130225-154848.jpg

Scavenger’s Daughter (or Skevington’s Daughter) was invented as an instrument of torture in the reign of Henry VIII by Sir Leonard Skeffington, Lieutenant of the Tower of London,[1] a son of Sir William Skeffington, Lord Deputy of Ireland, and his first wife, Margaret Digby. It was an A-frame shaped metal rack to which the head was strapped to the top point of the A, the hands at the midpoint and the legs at the lower spread ends; swinging the head down and forcing the knees up in a sitting position so compressed the body has to force the blood from the nose and ears.
