Lazy shopping: July clearance sales

Conventional wisdom says that if you wouldn't pay full-price for something, you shouldn't buy it on sale. I say conventional wisdom is boring. When prices hit 50%, 60%, even 70% off, that's the time to go nuts and buy something kah-ray-zy. Sequined shorts? Okay! Scuba dresses? Why not! Fun prints? Totally! When you take a risk and push your fashion boundaries, you end up with cool statement pieces that live in your wardrobe forever. July is the perfect time to score major fashion bargains with staying power; here are some of my favorites.
