Shop To Benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief

If you have watched any TV, gotten on the Internet or spoken to anyone in the last week or so I’m sure you know how hard hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. The extent of my current events knowledge rarely surpasses E! News but even I have been tuning into CNN and other news channels every day since.

Shop Net-a-Porter Under $250

With pretty much everyone having a major sale right now (most of which are in the process of winding down…so get those purchases in), it can be overwhelming. To me, the most exciting sales to shop are the high end designer sales because let’s be honest…nothing feels better than scoring those Atwoods you’ve had your eye on at half off (or more). So I scoured my favorite luxury site Net-a-Porter to find you the best sale shoes, jewelry and handbags under $250.

So when I was getting ready for the Swarovski event Tuesday night, I knew I’d be basing my outfit around this amazing bag. All black. Colorful accessories. But nothing to take away from the clutch. So here it goes…
