What: In Haute Pursuit
Why: Yes itâ€™s just a gimmick to get you to visit particular sites and peruse products â€“ but isnâ€™t that how you spend much of your time online anyway? To enter the contest is to embark on a very quick, very easy, and very low-key online treasure hunt. Play along and youâ€™ll find yourself introduced to a variety of off-the-beaten path online boutiques and specialty items â€“ many of them handmade; just about all of them appealing to savvy shoppers not interested in a cookie-cutter personal style. Founded by five independent businesswomen, In Haute Pursuit aims to give exposure to small online businesses and new designers. The site is very straightforward about this mission and itâ€™s a worthwhile one â€“ whatâ€™s the point of having the World Wide Web at your fingertips if youâ€™re just going to shop at Macys.com? At the very least youâ€™ll discover new stores and designers â€“ at the best youâ€™ll win some loot!
