Why to buy: I came upon this top by accident. I have always been a fan of all things C&C California. Macy’s used to carry this brand in Louisville, but then discontinued it. When we got to Boise Macy’s still carried it here, but they followed suit as well. Major bummer. Anyway, there aren’t a lot of shops that carry this brand locally, so whenever I see a good deal online, I almost always jump on it. Their basic tanks, though a bit pricey, are great quality.
I really loved the colors in this sweater. Plus it’s lightweight, which makes it an excellent spring/early summer item, especially in the evenings. At this point I highly recommend it.
How you can do it: One of the things I love about 6pm is the prices. They often have great deals on last-season’s, and a few of this season’s, items. But the irritating thing about it is that the prices fluctuate. For example, I bought this sweater for $27 just a few weeks ago, and now it jumped back up in price to $67.99. That’s quite the increase! It doesn’t seem that there’s a concrete reason for the price increase either. My best guess is that when I bought it at the end of April, it was not peak season for light-weight sweaters, but now that we’re in May it is… but I’m really not sure. Here’s the best way to shop 6pm:
Go to the “Clearance” section, then select “Women’s Clothing”. Once there, narrow your search by all the brand names you like on the left hand side of the page. After you’ve narrowed brands, select “% Off” at the top right of the page. This way you ‘re sorting by the brands you like, and then by the highest percentage off. It’s the perfect way to insure you’re getting a good deal on brands you love!
Tip: Although 6pm offers free shipping, they do not offer free returns. Be sure you like something before you buy, or be ok paying to return it!
Run Down: This sweater was originally $134. When I happened upon it a few weeks ago, it was marked down to $26.80, or 80% off. Unfortunately now it’s marked back up to $67.99, but after a few weeks I’m sure the price will go down again.
