Everyone Loves a Sale

27 May

Sure, I devote my time to finding designer inspired knock-off pieces for you, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love the occasional designer dress. And when said dress is on sale I tend to jump for joy.

That is why I love the site 365 Hangers. Their team stylists work hard to find designer pieces and provide them at a fraction of original retail price. Take this cute Marc Jacobs dress. Original price was $298 and they are selling it for just $89!

While they don’t have a ton of sizes for each item, they do have extended sizes (YES!) for those of us who don’t quite fit into a size 2. MUCH easier than digging through the sale racks at department stores to find deals!

In order to stay in the know on great deals I suggest signing up for their emails or following them on twitter (@365hangers). Happy hunting!

You are cordially invited to save some money

5 May

I have a confession to make. Each morning I get up, turn on the computer and prepare to start browsing sample sale websites. I wait patiently for the clock to turn to 9 (12, if you are an east coaster) and then I am off! Whether I’m racing for Alexander McQueen pumps on Gilt, or vintage Chanel jewelry on Billion Dollar Babes, or Spanx on Rue La La, I am focused and determined. These sample sales get my blood flowing.

It seems everyday more and more of these sites, providing designer pieces at a substantial discount, are popping up. The concept is great for those of us who don’t have access to famous designer sample sales held in NYC and LA. I have found everything from make-up bags, to sunglasses to cardigans to underwear, all marked down. These sites are even starting to sell travel packages to popular destinations at amazing rates,

Most of the programs are accessible by invite only, and all cost nothing to join. You will receive a daily email along with the brands that will be featured that day. Be sure to pay attention to the starting time, as they vary. (Convenient, as many items sell out within minutes of going live). So get your credit cards ready, because I’m inviting you to join them all. Simply click on the links below, fill out the info and you are ready to go!
