SAY GOODBYE TO SUMMER & HELLO TO ATLANTA'S FREAKIEST FESTIVAL

The last official day of summer isn't until Sunday, September 23, but fashionistas bidding farewell to white know that Labor Day marks the "unofficial end of summer." It's also a big holiday sale weekend, when back-to-school shopping volume is second only to that of Black Friday.

We work our tails off to take a vacation and then it seems like we need a vacation from our vacation.
