Clothing says a lot about a person, which is why we can identify kings by their affinity for wearing purple robes and werewolves by their tendency to shred and then eat their jeans. Communicate your personal style with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of women's fashions at 80 West in Saratoga Springs.
80 West’s racks rustle fashionably with seasonal threads from many different designers, including co-owner Tara Imrie's personal line, which is exclusive to the boutique. Greet the warm weather with new dresses, tops, jeans, shoes, Fabergé noses, and hats, along with jewelry designed by staff member Barbara. Sandals ($25–$35.50) facilitate socialization for lonely toes, and earrings ($15–$19.50) make a fashion statement for silent ears. 80 West proffers Dust, a mineral makeup collection that coats faces in a sheer glow and doubles as a great place to hide dinosaur bones ($40 and under).
On Tuesdays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., an in-house seamstress fine-tunes finery to complement visitors’ looks and remove vestigial ruffles. Gather a group of girlfriends for one of the shop’s What Not to Wear parties, where invitees plumb the fashionable treasures of Tara’s put-together mind for personal advice on choosing shapes to complement body types, colors to coordinate with skin tone, and fibers that conceal superhero tights.
