Haha I got that line from my friend Heather M. She understands that while we might want the finer things, we can’t break the bank just to get them.

So this week I’m going to share some of the best sites to get discount designer clothes from. And if you’re like me, you’ll be checking these out at work lol.

First site is They have flash sales with items up to 80% off retail! Their list of designers is endless. Some of the pieces I’m watching are

Dot-print teadress by Marc by Marc JacobsMarc by Marc Jacons: $358 on sale for $107!

Maydie T-shirt  by Marc by Marc JacobsMarc by Marc Jacobs: $138 on sale for $41!

Silk head scarf by Juicy CoutureJuicy Couture: $65 now on sale for $32!

Lace-embellished waistcoat by Natasha Natasha: $305 on sale for $92!

These are just a few of the items I like from this site, there are tons tons more.

Now, the next two sites are a bit exclusive, but if you want in, just post your email in the comments section and I will be sure to send you an invite. Otherwise there is a wait list, and no one wants to wait to shop!

Welcome to Gilt Groupe ( This site has flash sales for a couple of days for a handfull of designers at a time. You get an email notification when the sale is coming up, and another when it’s time to shop! But I must warn you things go fast! So don’t let items sit in your shopping cart for too long or they’ll get snatched for sure, and then you will have to be put on the wait list for the next shipment.

Check these out!

Alice Ritter $475 on sale for $128


Skirt $350 on sale for $98


Likey?! Me too! Okay last site that I came across was, this site has boutique flash sales, and like Gilt Group, it’s exclusive. So if you want me to invite you, just leave a comment with your email addy.

Now, they don’t have any sales now that I like, so I couldn’t post some fav pieces. BUT, upcoming sales include BCBG MaxMara (Sidebar: Did you know Miley Cirus is going to create a fashion line with BCBG? Ewww), Lucky Brand, and Laundry by Shelli Segal. So if you want to participate in these private sales, make sure to get me your email so I can invite you!
