in need of a shopping spree that's easy on your wallet?

July 06, 2010

Ok, I'm not doing this because I want credits (which yeah, they're nice) but because if  you're not already members of these sites, you are really missing out. 120x60 Logo
Hautelook always has great blowout sales. And just great prices period.
"Get in on the site that has everyone talking: HauteLook was chosen by People as one of the top 15 ways to save money, while Extra television called it a "Virtual Shopaholic Heaven.""
Ideeli has tons of giveaways and always has about 10 sample sales everyday.
"Our 2.5 million members enjoy limited-time sales featuring the most sought-after brands in fashion, home and beauty–at prices up to 80% off."

Gilt Groupe has that very luxurious feel. They have sold top designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Carolina Herrera.
"Each sale lasts 36 hours and features hand selected styles from a single designer."
Rue La La  is a girly, classic sample sale site. I love the graphics they use. And they're sales are amazing!
"We've built the connections required to negotiate private sale prices on some of the most sought after brands in fashion and home. And we have the exacting standards required to create and present our own carefully edited collections of premier brand looks in fashion and home. We are people who love style, whether it's a well-delivered retort, a perfectly frothed cappuccino, or the star offering from a favorite runway designer."

 Rent the Runway is not a sample sale site. If you have a party or a wedding or an occasion in general coming up and you want to wear something designer but just can't afford it, you can rent a dress or accessory for anywhere from $10-$150. (Including designers like Alice + Olivia, Herve Leger, Lela Rose, See by Chloe, Proenza Schouler, Diane von Furstenburg, etc.
"We buy pieces directly from top designers and then offer rentals at just 10% of retail prices. It couldn’t be simpler: just browse our pages until you find something you love. Put it in your basket, tell us when you’d like it delivered, and it’ll appear on your doorstep—in two different sizes, just to be safe. Yes, it’s that easy. After your date, or wedding, or cocktail party, is over, just repack it in handy, pre-paid packaging and just drop it in a mailbox."

These are my favorite sites. You should definitely check them out. And all of them are FREE to sign up. :)
