Say it with me. Discount Designer.
Oh, do you see the skyrockets...similar to when Bobby Brady was kissed by Millicent on the Brady Bunch...
That's how I feel about Outnet.com.
Hefty price tags abound. Make no mistake. But there are some really good deals in the mix.
Anna Sui Beaded Chevron Dress - Retail: $375 Outnet: $178.50
Kenneth Jay Lane Swarovski Crystal Cuff - Retail: $150 Outnet: $60
Tibi Velodromo Shift Dress - Retail: $355 Outnet: $177.50
Registered members can also opt-in for their 24 hour pop-up sales. The next one is a Bottega Veneta shoulder bag starting on May 29 at 11:00 am EDT.
Don't get me wrong - there is plenty of room in life's shopping cart for Tarjay and Forever21. These days, we (yes, LBM the dread pronoun) find ourselves thinking twice before swiping the card - no matter what the purchase.
So instead of buying the cheapy stuff that will be ditched after one season, shouldn't we invest in quality clothing, accessories and shoes. Sadly - I think my closet is worth more than my 401K these days. With me?
At least that's what I claim to Mr. News Readin' when boxes and bags appear and marriage math - rounding total of all purchases down - is quickly applied.
Stay tuned. More at 11.
Edited to add: My bestie informed me that this came off a bit errr...out of touch. Lord knows there is plenty of Old Navy in this closet. And I am not afraid of a consignment shop. Bottom line - I'd rather have two really wonderful cashmere sweaters that I wear to shreds - than 10 that won't last me three seasons. Discount websites help the cause.
