Snuggly Stuff On Sale (A Really Good Sale!)
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

O.K., so it’s sort of balmy today, but by Tuesday it could be in the 20s -- if you believe the forecasts on www.weather.com.  And don’t forget that four years ago, in April, we had a major, brrr-brrr blizzard. We suspect you don’t need these mild scare tactics, though, to appreciate a really amazing sale: Log on to www.girl32.com and check out the hats, gloves, and scarves available now for nearly half-price. They’re not just plain ol' wintergear, either: The hats have a neat set of Swarovski-crystal buttons that open up to allow you to stick your ponytail through, so you’re not sporting a lumpy-head look; the gloves have flip-top digits so your thumb and index finger can work your Blackberry; and the scarf (our favorite) has a handy zippered pocket for keys and secret stuff (pictured). The palette of colors is beautiful, from a luscious pink to punky stripes. Everything is 51% wool and 49% acrylic, so they wash well and wear even better. Hats are $33 now (originally $65); gloves, $20 ($35); and scarves, $40 ($75). Buy the entire trio for $89 (as opposed to $93, or the original $175). Now that is a really great deal for snuggly style.
