Enter my giveaway!
But in the meantime, I’m a deal-whore, and I figured I’d post about some of my favorite websites for deals. Yes, I’m a diva shopper, but you may not know that I rarely pay full price for anything (Louis Vuitton excluded, of course).
So, be like me, and online shop until you drop! Online shopping is so much better for the state of the calluses on your feet, after all.
Gilt Groupe – my favorite invite-only luxury boutique site. Quick, 2-3 day sales of luxury brands offering giant discounts. As I type, current brands on sale include 3.1 Phillip Lim, Habitual, Lauren Merkin and for men, Quiksilver. I buy all of my expensive Voluspa candles from this site, along with other fun stuff.
Rue La La – another awesome invite-only luxury boutique site. Added bonus, they have *phenomenal* customer service, in case you ever have a problem with a purchase.
Ideeli – my third and final fave invite-only luxury boutique site. I have made purchases from all 3 of these invite-only boutique sites and have been extremely pleased with everything.
Jetsetter – a division of Gilt Groupe offering rad deals on super luxury vacation getaways. I do a lot of daydreaming here.
Shop It To Me – I love the concept of this website. You go to the website & sign up (for free, of course), pick your favorite brands or stores, choose how often you want to get emails, and then they send you emails whenever items under your favorite brand go on sale. For instance, I love Chloe and See By Chloe bags. So whenever a department store like Bloomies or Nordstrom puts select Chloe bags on sale, it comes up on the daily, customized email I get. This is how I got a $725 See by Chloe bag for only $275. Or, whenever Louboutins go on sale, those come up in my daily customized email. Love.
JustFabulous – Another really interesting concept. A couple Hwood celeb-stylists got together and created this site. Sign up, answer a few questions about your wardrobe and personal taste/style, and on the first of each month you get an email with customized suggestions for shoes and handbags. The thing is….EVERYTHING suggested to you is $39.95, which includes shipping. It’s all no-name brands, but I’ve seen some really cute shoes come through.
Groupon – Daily deals in your area from restaurants, health & fitness to beauty. Tons of cities/regions are included on this site. I recently purchased a $30 gift certificate to a local restaurant for $15 and yesterday bought a $100 gift certificate to a local salon for $45.
Deal Perk – Just like Groupon. I bought a $55 gift certificate to a local wax parlor for $25. A $25 full bikini wax!! Great deal.
Happy shopping. And remember, your helping the country out from a terrible economic crisis. Bonus!
