There are many sites upon which we budget-minded fashion freaks can find a name brand deal, but let's be honest, if you sale-surf online you don't get to touch the clothes, to hold them up like a human paper doll, to see how your calves will look sticking out of them and to get them the same day. That's what the FIG Finale 75-percent off sale is for. Find women's, children's and men's clothing, shoes and accessories from Dallas' top stores and designers at a discount that means you can afford them without using fingerquotes around the word "afford" when you justify your purchase to your BFF (best friend and fashionista). The VIP early access party is from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday and the $50 pre-purchased admission (online) includes cover to Friday's general admission sale from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. ($10 in advance, $15 at the door). The Fashion Industry Gallery is located at 1807 Ross Ave. Visit fashionindustrygallery.com for details, tickets and a list of participating retailers.
