Alana Marshall-Hughs has her priorities. They're Prada, Tiffany's, and Gucci. The African-American princess has never met a pricey retailer that didn't practically cry with joy the minute she prances in. But now that her credit card bills have exceeded the price of her college tuition, her parents have cut her off. Alana's not going down without a fight. After all, she gets credit card applications in the mail every day, and where there's a will to shop, there's a way...right? Tall, blond Hailey Starrett grew up on a farm, making jams with her hippie parents. Now, she's making up for lost time by shopping till she drops. Hailey's determined to make it as an actress in NYC, and she just might succeed...if she can keep herself from spending it all on shoes, clothes, and accessories. The blond beauty's just been given the chance of a lifetime--starring on a soap opposite daytime's hottest hunk...and nastiest diva. But being in the spotlight means even more pressure to look good, and looking good doesn't come cheap. Or does it? Enter Marcella Rodriguez. This Queens girl likes looking fine, but she can sniff out a bargain anywhere. $1200 shoes? $800 hoodies? Girl, please Does the word "outlets" ring a bell? With her penchant for telling people exactly what she thinks, Marcella's not winning any friends behind the makeup counter. She's got her sights set on becoming a buyer, barking at clerks and bartering with wholesalers. But first, she has to work a miracle--keeping her two new best friends from going under and taking her down with them.
