THE DIRTY ARMY: Hey, Nik. I’ve been watching Extra with Mario Lopez and Maria Menounos regularly. Every week or so, they have a promo for a website called ‘StyleMined’. It involves a Flynn Adams informing Maria about all of these great deals on purses, jewelry, ect. A lot of these deals are great, with some great looking stuff. I have never actually ordered anything. Sometimes, you can get up to 85 percent off of a certain item. The thing is, after google-ing some of the brands associated with the deals, some of the designers don’t seem so legit. For example, they have a leather tote, by a brand ‘Bowes Adams’, for $89, an 80 percent off deal from $455 (original price.) I then try to find a designer ‘Bowes Adams’ online, and could not find ANYTHING. Other brands offering deals either have a small time business website, without many products other then what is offered as a ‘deal’ online. Really want to get to the bottom of this, I am a girl who loves to shop and get a great deal and I don’t think others should be mislead by this website if it isn’t completely legit!
Sounds like bait and switch to me. Suck you in with a fake purse to buy jewelry you don’t need.- nik
