How is it that “but it’s on sale” can justify almost anything? Those Alaia boots are half off (meaning they’re still $1,100 and you haven’t paid rent this month) or those Miu Miu glitter booties from 3 years ago were “a great investment.” I’ve heard it all, I’ve said it all myself but it’s time to get realistic about what to buy and what not to buy when it comes to sales. And it’s perfect timing because one of my favorite sales just started…
Because today is that one time of year where you can wear a ton of red, white and blue, as well as stars and stripes, eat as many hotdogs and hamburgers as you want…and no one will judge you for it (or at least I won’t). I figure by now you’ve had enough of the “what to wear to a 4th of July BBQ” posts so I’m just going to talk about a few trends that happen to be very appropriate for today’s festivities — stars and stripes.
Oscar for under $400? Pucci for under $150? McQueen for $120? Yes it’s true! The Outnet is already a great resource for buying discounted designer fashion, but every once in a while they’ll take it even further and offer 80-85% off for their clearance sales. And it’s happening right now…only until this Saturday!
I scoured all 25 pages of the clearance sale to bring you the best of the best. Take serious advantage of this. Doesn’t come around very often!
One of my favorite jewelry designers Alexis Bittar is having a Fall 2012 preview party at the Bucktown location this Saturday, July 14. From 2-4pm guests are invited to sip champagne (just what everyone needs on a Saturday afternoon), enjoy treats and be the first to check out the latest from Alexis Bittar’s Fall ’12 collection.
Starting today at 11am ct, Gilt is featuring the first ever Brian Atwood sale on their site! This sale will feature both shoes and handbags (including the one I wore to the Swarovski event) in a variety of colors and styles. Brian is hot, his shoes are awesome so this is one sale you do not want to miss.
