You'd never know that I was a fashion nut. Why? Because I'm a browser. A window shopper. A bargain hunter who doesn't often find a bargain I can justify unless my e-mail sale alerts offer something that is absolutely, earth-shatteringly on sale. We're talking more than 60 percent off, people. So the annual Fashion Industry Gallery (FIG) Finale Sale this Friday and Saturday is totally bonus. Imagine 75 percent off brands like M. Missoni, Diane Von Furstenberg (to die!), Baby Bliss (yes, there is children's and men's clothing too), 7 For All Mankind, Juicy Couture, True Religion, Elle by Elements and more. Yeah, more. For a steal. Cash and credit cards will be accepted at most vendors, but an ATM will be on site (you know this is important info). General admission is $15 at the door or $20 for a two-day pass. VIP tickets (which allow you into the Thursday night reception with early shopping on in-season merch) are $50. FIG is located at 1807 Ross Ave. Visit fashionindustrygallery.com or call 214-748-4344, ext. 326.
