BB Exclusive: Save 20 Percent on London Times Dresses

Are you familiar with London Times? You've probably noticed this brand at department stores like Macy's or Dillard's. For fall, the NYC-based dress company has ramped up their website, and I'm seeing a lot of stylish options for work, parties and more. Almost all London Times dresses are under $100 and come in sizes 4-16 as well as plus sizes. Give the site a look and if you like what you see, use code BB20 at checkout to receive 20% off the entire London Times site. (One time use per customer. Cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions. Expires 10/18/12.)

{My top picks (from left): Lace Shift Dress, $58 (down from $78); Blurred Plaid Ponte, $78; Lace and Satin Peplum, $78; Belted Lace Dress, $78}

Retail Bootcamp: Shop Like A Stylist

Some of you may recall me tweeting about a top secret video project a couple months ago, and now I'm excited to finally be able to share what I've been working on! It's called Retail Bootcamp, and it's my new shopping show on the just-launched Style Coalition TV channel on YouTube.

In the first episode, Retail Bootcamp takes you inside a well-known department store to find out what it really takes to shop like a stylist.

In this ongoing series, I'll be visiting various retailers - from big department stores to local boutiques and sample sales - to share my tips and tricks on how to shop savvy and find fashionable bargains.
