Giveaway: Are You A PLNDR Girl (or Boy)?

I was certain, for many years, that if ever it was discovered that each of us had a super-human inside of us, I would probably be a ninja.

I lived like this for a long time – too long, maybe. It wasn’t until I caught myself sitting barefoot on a boat, in the middle of the day, drinking a rum & coke before I realized the brutal truth… I wasn’t a ninja at all. It was clear that I was, and always have been, a pirate.

Here are some things I like about pirates:

  • They do whatever the hell they want.
  • They listen to and play really good music.
  • Epic sartorial style – admit it.
  • They get lots of neat things for free. Well, they go take a lot of things for free – but I can get behind that!

There are some things about pirates I’m not super crazy about, but those things don’t matter. Shh, stop. Don’t think about it.

I’d been browsing around Karmaloop one day, as I’m wont to do (streetwear fanatics, hello!), and ran across this vowel-less wonderland, and knew it was going to be a problem.

A really good problem.

SHINY. is like the love child of Karmaloop‘s super urban, loud, sassy streetwear company and the snooty, high-fashion-toting, sample sale sites out there. Basically, it’s got all of the bargain-lover’s favorite things – up to 90% off name brand opportunities, timed sales, and an constant influx of new and amazing designers – but with the kick-ass attitude of a modern-day, city-dwelling… pirate? Well, crap analogy or not, you see where I’m going with this: style with attitude at prices that are just as sassy.

They call their prices “legal theft” – if that doesn’t hook a Broke & Beautiful girl, I don’t know what will.

Even their PLNDR blog is full of attitude! They cover everything from music to trends to interviews with intense shoppers.

Let’s be honest: no one would buy a car without a solid test drive, so please allow me to show you my wishlist a couple pieces from their current sales – one of which is 80%20, one of Jen and my favorite shoe brands, designed by Ce Ce Chin.

50% and 39% off, respectively. Swoon.

As far as clothing goes – they’ve got an ample amount of both men’s and women’s clothing up for sale at all times. One of my current favorite lady-sales: PLNDR BLNDR. What is it? Well, I have a feeling it defies definition, but the bottom line is this – deals starting at $1. That’s BEYOND budget fashion and straight into ridiculous-insane-great deals.

Especially considering the PLNDR BLNDR offerings include Alternative Apparel, Cheap Monday, Converse, and Lira.

Even better than all of these crazy deals all in one place?

PLNDR wants to give you $100 to shop there. Free! $100 for free!

Seriously. They know that Broke & Beautiful is harboring tons of other PLNDR girls, and maybe even a few boys. Being that the pirate community is generally pretty tight knit (monthly potlucks, etc.), it’s only courteous of them to share the wealth and introduce you to their largest source of booty.

How does one get this free $100?

Well, you can start by doing any or all of these things:

  1. Mandatory: Leave a comment telling us why you’re a PLNDR girl or guy!
  2. Extra Entry: Become a fan of Broke & Beautiful on Facebook.
