The Purple Label

There is one thing that honestly plagues me about being a budget fashion obsessive… All the cheap, great deals I find – dresses for $40, tops for $25, etc… – they’re great and everything, but my lust for fashion falls in the originality, the craftsmanship, the shape… You won’t find these things together in most budget fashion lines (Forever 21, I’m talking to you).

Months ago, I’d never heard of the website 80sPurple, nor had I ever heard of an affordable clothing line with all the aforementioned concepts fully in tact and strong. Recently, though, I caught wind of such a line, and learned that its baby-Daddy was none other than 80sPurple.

The Purple Label is a collection of architectural, cutting edge apparel at prices that make Forever 21 look like an overpriced pile of crap. Well, sometimes looks aren’t deceiving, on both accounts. I’m curious about the construction, but from what I can see, this is promising. For girls who love what’s happening on the runways, but are about 8 years in Med school away from being able to afford it – your wish is 80sPurple’s command.

Purple Label is an accumulation of prevailing design pieces in which our buyers have explored all over the map and hand-picked to bring these special pieces all to one central, easy-access location. Providing you with the latest fashions, we strive to keep it fresh and affordable. Quantities may be limited, so don’t miss out!

Have you tried this label? Heard anything? Let me know!


Probably watching Netflix.

    Kind of confused about the prices comment. There is PLENTY of pricey stuff on that website! Handbags go for $500+ ?! So you’ll have to take time to sift through it all. Plenty to choose from at the same time.

      Well, if you go to the section for just “Purple Label”, there’s nothing over $85. :)
