During the Stone Age, dressing for distress was all the rage, because cave persons knew tattered threads would make them less likely to be courted by a handsome triceratops. Dress for success with today's deal: for $60, you get $150 worth of contemporary women's clothing and accessories from the The Violet Hour online store. Glowing with praise from Elle magazine, the two fashionable sisters that own and run The Violet Hour draw from global influences to carefully curate and stock highly wearable tops, dresses, jewelry, and bags. Major designers like Halston and Missioni hang from the racks alongside lesser-known clothiers like Maggie Ward. Engender envy from chilly, cheeseless crackers with the brie sweater ($112), or accessorize naked earlobes with the top selling sterling silver scallop drop earrings ($92).
