You could call it a marketing ploy, or another act of meaningless journalism, but we're not going to turn down an excuse to obsessively discuss e-commerce all day long. Whether today will be the Black Friday of e-commerce or not, the fact is that online shopping is now a powerful force in the fashion industry. Let's chalk Cyber Monday up to the fact that today is the first day our notions of holiday-shopping will germinate at our office desks and leave it at that. If you're not sure where to start, check out our holiday gift guide for fashion items under fifty dollars in addition to all of the fabulous gift guides curated across the Sugar Network (our sister sites) which can be found in one place, namely, Holiday Sugar. For other lovely e-commerce inspirations check out our namesake tag, where we list online sales, and our Spreads tab, where shopping and collage meet.
