That last one got your attention, eh?
It's inevitable that a youth-driven political movement is going to attract companies that will do anything to strike a chord with that elusive 20-something "cool" group of consumers. But when you're talking about Occupy Wall Street (and all its international equivalents), a movement that's kinda against consumerism, it becomes sort of ridiculous when companies start trying to target that demographic. Isn't the 99% hard up? (Yes, we are.) But that hasn't stopped the fashion industry--and some ballsy companies--from hopping on the OWS bandwagon and trying to sell shit.
We can't stop singing the praises of Daily Candy's new online sample sale site, Swirl. From Marc Jacobs sunnies to Dolce Vita shoes, Swirl never fails in delivering food, fashion and fun at wallet-friendly prices (and without the hassle of brick-and-mortar sample sales).
