The crisp, slightly preppy basics on the Built by Wendy online sample sale are screaming for your Spring closet. True to its sample sale name, the prices are cheap for Built by Wendy's signature tailoring and cute details. Warm weather uniform: we love these Military Shorts ($35, originally $117), paired with a Little Yellow Camisole ($32, originally $108). Visit Built by Wendy to check out the sample sale for yourself, which ends Monday, April 11, so no dillydallying.
There's Gilt Groupe, there's Rue La La, and HauteLook — they occasionally sell jewelry, but mostly ready-to-wear. Now there's a sample sale site solely dedicated to bling. Hooray!
eight1six provides access to an edited selection of jewelry, all sold at affordable prices. Sales, which are bi-weekly and open for 48 hours, feature 30 new pieces each time. The very first sale opened this week with some of the below eye candy, ranging from $22 to $36. Sign up and start blinging.
If you're like me, you love to find great bargains via online sample sales. Now there's a one-stop shop thanks to MyNines.com, a free service that aggregates products from various sample sale sites. There are clothes, shoes, handbags, jewelry, as well as categories for men, travel, beauty, and wines. Currently my favorite brands are Filippa K, Zimmermann, Acne, and Mint. It's adding new sites each week, so be sure to check back regularly.
The Mini Social, bTrendie and Zulily all send daily emails to members, informing them of the one or two sales they are hosting that day. Sale products tend to focus on boutique brands – such as celeb baby favorite Splendid Littles, eco-friendly toy company Plan Toys and baby gear giant Graco to name a few – and prices can be as much as 50 percent off of retail stores. But interested buyers have to act fast and be willing to compromise. The sites tend to only have a limited supply of the goods that can sell out in a matter of minutes, and the available colors and patterns may not be the most current.
Do you shop the children's sample sale sites?
Halston released a teaser clip of their Fall 2009 collection video which, to twenty-somethings, will probably feel like a feature length film, seeing that it's over three minutes long.
Justin Timberlake and the folks at William Rast dish on their comeback, their collection (left), and their first show in the tents.
Publicists, designers, buyers, and models--all of whom you will know by name--weigh in on the methods of surviving Fashion Week.
The only thing more defeating than trying to find a power source at tents--standing in line at the Barneys Warehouse Sale.
We typically don't post about sample sales but since twice as many chicsters will be in town this week, and because Sophomore is one of our favorite basics brands, well, we just have to. If the Barneys Warehouse Sale frightens you, skip over to Circa Now in the East Village in between shows for some cotton basics at serious discounts (we're talking in the 15-90 dollar range). Want to plan ahead? Check out the Sophomore Spring 2009 look book and devise your strategy.
It deserves mention that Gilt Groupe launched into a massive Alexander McQueen sale today. Not only does this appear to be the most plentiful sale to ever hit the site, but the prices are also exceptionally low. If it were anyone else, we'd be thinking pessimistic thoughts but it's McQueen so all we can do is watch these Fall 08 items quickly sell out and smile. Above, three offerings which we predict will be gone by sundown.
With so many markdowns to wade through, there's no telling who will score the unbelievable offers and who will walk home with an ill-fitting dress or an unwanted pair of shoes. Something tells us that every single one of us has landed on both sides of that fence and, that said, we think research is the common denominator. Below, our round up of the ten best deals online right now--they might land on the safe side but we think that's what makes them must-haves. Pricing information and where to buy below each picture.
This shirting drive lets you partake in the madness of sale season, and, participate in a good cause--that's all a gal could ask for during the holiday season. If you should be elsewhere, never fear, Steven Alan is discounted through the brand's various retailers, and, on their website. Now for an act of willpower...for every Steven Alan sale item you buy online, donate something else here or here. See? You might as well have been in New York for the event.
