Without clothes, there would be no laundromats, and without laundromats, most of us would never get to see strangers' underwear. Enjoy clothes ownership's ancillary benefits with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of women's designer apparel and accessories at Thread Lounge.
Thread Lounge trolls the sample sales of more than 400 top-notch designers, collecting loot that makes DailyCandy and Time Out Chicago swoon and helps to launch the careers of under-the-radar designers. Inspired by English shirting’s refined fabrics, Liz Logie button-downs make crisp officewear or highly professional nightshirts ($60). Mix and match trendy Olive Olivia skirts, tops, and dresses ($45–$125) with organic-cotton tees, vests, and sweatshirts from Alternative Apparel ($35–$70), or refuse to take a side in the wide- vs. skinny-legged pants debate by slipping into Tag’s comfy spandex trousers ($78–$122). Made of 90% cashmere and 10% warm fuzzy feelings, pashmina scarves ($45) fancify outfits as their proceeds help single moms in Nepal to meet their families’ basic needs.
