Here’s a list of my favorite sales happening this week on Gilt…

Camilla Skovgaard (4/12)- You will love these fashion forward stilettos. The well-heeled options in this sale range from peep-toe to gold T-straps to python saddle sandals. Feeling more grounded? The metallic strappy flats are just as stylish as their sky-high counterparts.

Judith Leiber (4/13)– Tiny purses or oversize jewelry boxes? That’s the inevitable question Judith Leiber evening bags raise. Gleaming with meticulously applied crystals, these clutches are recognized in fashionable circles the world over. Even sunglasses receive the Judith Leiber treatment with exquisite sparkle.

Pour la Victoire (4/13)– Take your style to new heights with shoes and boots from a European-inspired label that has an array of colors and silhouettes to fit your every need. Extra-tall boots make gems appear long and lean, while shorter booties—offering teetering heels and intriguing details—are a chic pick for your skinny jeans and skirts.

Cynthia Steffe (4/15)– Minimal and ultra-femme usually don’t go hand in hand, but Cynthia Steffe toes the line expertly with these elegant designs. Here, look for coquettish designs accented with a pleat detail here, a cascading ruffle there—unique enough to draw appreciative glances but subtle enough to keep the focus on you.

Shop For Japan (4/16)- Shop this season’s latest trends and 100% of the purchase will be donated to Global Giving for Japan. Gilt has collaborated with some of the hottest labels – think Helmut Lang and Elizabeth & James – to create the Shop For Japan sale. The sale features this season’s best looks and 100% of the purchase price will go to Global Giving for Japan because all the looks were donated by the designers themselves!

Amrita Singh (4/7)- A mastery of new- and old-world design, an Eastern-inspired aesthetic and a penchant for the bold have earned jewelry designer Amrita Singh awards and international recognition.

Pastel pieces are amplified with ruching and intricate beading, which imbues them with a hard, futuristic edge. Rounding it the collection is a complimentary selection of structured jackets in neutrals and muted colors.

The High Heel (3/30)- “I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.” So spoke sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, and it’s hard to disagree when you see the sky-high stunners on this Gilt sale. From the classic silhouettes to bolder, adorned styles, these high heels will add a kick to all your wardrobe favorites this season.

Foley &  Corinna (3/31) – Foley + Corinna has emerged as a downtown label with New York’s most wanted bags. Part vintage and part modern, these sumptuous leather satchels standout with their own brand of chic yet playful design. Their classic style bag is perfect because you can wear it folded over with a shoulder strap or carry it by the handle…it will be your go-to bag for any season.

Current/Elliott (4/1)– Is there such a thing as owning too many pairs of jeans? Not when designers keep coming up with styles as compelling as these. The skinny jeans have the ideal bunch at the hems, boyfriend jeans sit at just the right spot on the hips, and jeggings come in several styles—including cropped, with an of-the-moment high waist.
