I’m probably dating myself a bit, OK a lot, but who remembers pulling the Spiegel catalog out of the mailbox and happily spending an entire afternoon folding down the pages of all the things you’d be begging your parents for later? Spiegel was THE catalog of the 80s and 90s. Now you don’t have to wait for the catalog! Spiegel lives on in the digital world and they’re still as fashionable and affordable as ever.
Spiegel started out as a small family-owned store in mid-1800s Chicago. Because a mail order system did not exist yet, Spiegel issued it’s first catalog in 1888 to lure people into the store – pretty innovative, don’t you think? It wasn’t until 1905 when Spiegel began it’s mail order operations and by 1906, Spiegel’s mail order sales had reached nearly $1 million. Today, Spiegel is a multi-billion dollar corporation. And for good reason.
From the office to the beach, Spiegel has everything that will keep you stylish without breaking the bank. Though they’re known primarily for their clothing line – which includes everything from dresses and pants to sweaters and tank tops — one glance at their website will show you that they also have a gorgeous selection of shoes (want this!), handbags (want this!), and jewelry (want this!).
While you’re there, be sure to check out their new summer styles. I had a hard time narrowing this list down to 3, but here are a few of the pieces I am loving right now.
Plus, they’re having a huge sale on pants and shorts, and well, who doesn’t love a sale?
