Some items at teen and young adult-focused stores can be ageless, believe it or not. American Eagle Outfitters does a good job of providing pieces an adult woman would want to mix into her wardrobe. The retailer also is excellent at lowering the prices. Check out the pieces we want, after the jump, and remember to act fast because available sizes are dwindling. Keep reading »
Do you ever shop at American Eagle? (We stopped sometime after we realized we don’t belong to a fictional rugby team.) If you don’t frequent the all-American retailer, you might want to start. Come July 21, AE will be offering free smartphones to customers who “try on the company’s jeans,” says the Wall Street Journal. Whoa, was that a fact-checking error, or did we indeed read the word try, not buy? Apparently, all you have to do is wedge your butt into a pair of destroyed skinny jeans (assuming you can actually stand to do this in the ungodly summer heat), and you’ll receive directions to a sign-up website offering free cell phones (the BlackBerry Bold, the Motorola Backflip, and the HTC Aria are the choices), if you agree to a two-year contract with one of the AE listed carriers. Shoppers will also get a $25 American Eagle gift card. All of this is part of a promotion the company is hoping will put them back on track, as they haven’t been able to keep up with the economy and have fallen slightly out of step with style.
It’s an interesting proposition, but we have to wonder … does a free phone for just trying on jeans seem almost too gimmicky? [Wall Street Journal] Keep reading »
One of the good things about shopping at a store that’s meant for teens and early-20-somethings is that they have fashionable stuff that’s much cheaper than designer clothing. American Eagle Outfitters has the aesthetic of Ralph Lauren (well, sort of), but the prices of the Gap. Check out some of our faves from AE after the jump. I’m already planning a mini shopping spree this afternoon. Keep reading »
This is the first week of fall, which means it’s time to bring out your hats, scarves, gloves, and, most importantly, your warm coat. If you’re sick of the usual gloomy grays and blacks, just think how bright and cheery this yellow peacoat will make you feel, even on days when the thermometer reads -10 degrees F.

American Eagle’s aerie line has some new styles that are way too cute to wear solely for lounging around the apartment. Methinks the ruffle nightie could even be worn as a dress, as long as it’s not too transparent.
1. Long Boyfriend Cardi, $44.50
2. Ruffle Nightie, $24.50
3. Pin-Dot Lace Cheeky, 3 for $25 Keep reading »
