Women's and men's fashions were once indistinguishable until horses started complaining that the lace adorning cowboys' dresses clashed with their saddles. Access decidedly ladylike looks with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of clothing, accessories, lingerie, and original artwork at the Gecko Fashions boutique in Newark or online.
Gecko Fashions dresses trendy ladies in high-quality garb and chic lingerie and sells locally made jewelry and artwork. The flirtatious Next Level one-shoulder bubble hem top ($24) flaunts any figure and pairs deftly with the handmade "OHM" necklace ($41). Those hoping to intimidate rivals at Tuesday-night bingo may opt to wrap up in a cotton tee such as the locally designed "If You Can't Win Fair, Play Naked" V-neck ($9.95). Socially minded shoppers will appreciate the opportunity to support local artists through purchases and the fact that Gecko donates five-percent of proceeds from all Save the Ta-Tas gear, such as tanks ($24) and buttons ($2), to breast-cancer research.
