WHAT: Christian Louboutin Sample Sale (no, your eyes are not deceiving you!)

WHY:  Because every girl should have a pair of his fabulous red-soled shoes. And just about every one can justify a pair at $300 a pop!!! Remember ladies, the starting price for a pair of Loo-Boos is $800.  Now,  although the powers-that-be are not really calling this one a sample sale (I believe their term is “flash sale”), for your purposes this is a sample sale, it’s just on-line.  Truth be told, the actual sample sale was a few weeks ago in New York City, but who needs to live in New York and stand in line for 2 hours when you can just let your fingers do the walking!

WHEN: Friday, May 28, 2009 – first thing in the AM!

WHERE: The OutNet

Net-A-Porter on the Cheap

Outnet.comNet-A-Porter has beautiful clothes, no doubt about it. The prices, however, just about take your breath away. So what were the Net-A-Porter powers-that-be to do in the era of the Recessionista? Create an outlet store of course! The Outnet, an offshoot of Net-A-Porter – think Saks Off5th and Neiman’s Last Call – recently opened it’s portal on the world wide web. Free returns are a bonus; the prices may still cause a mild arrhythmia, but they are 30%-70% off the retail price.  A shopping tip for those of you not yet hip to the outlet store shuffle, a lot of the items are going to be a few seasons old so shop with purpose by looking for classic pieces that will stand the test of time.  If you’re still trying to figure out how to afford your first pair of Louboutins, this may be a site to bookmark. Just like any other outlet store, it’s likely that there will be frequent markdowns for slow moving merchandise.  Viva la outlet!
