Fashion for Less: Designer Sample Sales

I love being frugal as much as I love fashion. Yep, you guessed...dangerous combination! LOL But I truly believe that if you wear, let's say a nice bag, or nice shoes, you can pull off a $5 white tee! And you don't really need to spend too much, one or two items are enough.

After doing some research, I found some online sites that offer designer stuff for 70%-80% off their original prices. You can find really nice things for a fraction of their cost. These are sites that offer private sales for members only. The sales are organized by designer and usually last 2 or 3 days. They will send you and email letting you know about them.

You can sign up to this sites for FREE. Another good reason to sign up is that most of them will give you $10-$25 credit (depending on the site) when you refer a friend and they make their first purchase.

There are a lot of great brands worth the try, and they do offer men's and kids' clothing, too.

The only site that provides a link is Gilt Groupe. They currently have a Final Sale for various designers, and there is a promotion going on (from InStyle magazine) that offers $10 off any purchase. To sign up for FREE and get the $10 credit follow these steps:
Want an invite for the other sites? Contact me via or follow me on Twitter and send me a direct message with your email address.
