If the only thing that never changes is change itself, then the best sources of timeless fashion advice are the talking president heads on all nickels and dimes. Take style tips from honest Abe with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 toward eclectic clothing, hats, and gifts at Jedzebel on Front Street. This Groupon is only valid for in-store purchases.
Jedzebel is a bohemian boutique offering fair-trade and eco-friendly clothing, as well as jewelry and gift items. Its line of ecogirl garb is crafted from organic cotton, which means that items such as the Carmel Top ($37) don't require rinsing before eating. Jedzebel's vintage silk Magic Skirt ($38–$40) has the ability to transform into a skirt, top, or dress using one of 12 mind-bending tie-techniques.
Other adroit accessories include the packable travel hat from hat.a.girl ($15–$23), which offers UPF 50+ sun protection and can withstand the force of an over-packed suitcase or exhausted elephant and still retain its shape upon release. Additionally, an adjustable sizing tie allows for a snug fit that provides comfort and protection against thieving tree monkeys on the run from a mustachioed cap salesman.
Style sleuths can also pick up fortuitous finds in one of Jedzebel's $5 bargain bins or on its $10 discount clothing rack. The citadel of swaddlings also has a selection of ear rocks and neck metal, known in some high-fashion circles as “jewelry,” and with many pieces for under $1, a year's supply of dandifying accessories can cost less than laser-blasting an ill-timed "Pluto is #1" tattoo.
Jedzebel has a 4.5-star average from seven Yelpers:
