I’ve been watching NBC’s Fashion Star since the beginning, and I was thrilled when it got renewed for another season. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it’s a reality show that pits designers against each other in an attempt to get bought by Macys, Saks, and Express.
Winning designs from each episode can be purchased from the store that bought it.. Last year, it was a race to the mall the day after the show aired, as winning designs sold out in record time!
Up until now, I had been discouraged by the high prices this season’s Fashion Star pieces were going for. But after seeing Cassandra’s Geo Tunic on Friday night’s episode, I had to go check it out!
So imagine my surprise when I’m told by an Express associate that they don’t actually carry the Fashion Star pieces, and that you have to order them online!?
Personally, I need to try on clothes before I buy them.. And I imagine I’m not the only one like that. So I’m surprised by their decision to make these pieces available online-only. Needless to say, they lost a sale. (Not that it matters, as the only sizes left online are X-Small and XX-Small)
Too bad, as it’s a really cute top.. 🙁
