Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of clothing and accessories at Sway and Cake.
Sway and Cake's phalanx of fashionistas doles out trendy apparel, shoes, and accessories from brands such as Chan Luu, Tucker, and Marcia Moran. A pair of Blank NYC stud hip shorts ($27) embraces thighs with a row of pyramid studs, and Malibu Denim Alexis straight-leg jeans ($50) provide a comfortably cozy pasture for calves. The fringe of a Gypsy 05 Tamara scarf (ant olive) ($32) might amusingly tickle the hem of a layerable Daftbird long-sleeve V-neck ($65) in black or white, easily tossed over a wide selection of swimwear.
Inside the boutique, a longhorn skull watches over sleek shelves of denim and dresses hanging from racks suspended from the ceiling, wistfully musing on its days as a trendsetter of the stampede. Customers can also use their Groupon toward sale items and stuff deeper discounts into their shopping bags.
