Sometimes I think I need to take a step back from online sample sale sites. And then something pops up that I MUST HAVE and I know the price is going to be good, then I’m back to checking all of them religiously. Well, not all of them, really only Gilt, Hautelook, ideeli and Rue La La (sign up for Rue La La through 8/8 and you’ll get a $10 credit). I’ve purchased mostly from those four, and the only problems I’ve had are that Hautelook and ideeli take FOREVER to ship. But that’s not really a problem, per se, it’s just that I’m impatient.
Besides the “hurry up and buy already” issues with these sites and the frustration that comes from logging on within seconds of a start and already finding everything sold out, I’ve had lots of luck shopping online sample sale sites. I do buy things I wouldn’t normally buy because of the price, and sometimes that’s NOT a good thing, but I’ve been mostly happy with what I’ve purchased. And sometimes REALLY happy that I bought something I wouldn’t normally have bought, like a DKNY bathing suit, or a relatively “normal” looking three dots dress. I’ve ended up wearing both of these a LOT more than I thought I would….
Today, I’m wearing my latest acquisition, a pair of Repettos scored from ideeli last Monday. Actually, this was super-fast shipping for ideeli, and I’m impressed. I’m also wearing a Nation Ltd. tunic scored on Hautelook. And Joe’s Jeans. Old Joe’s Jeans. I need new jeans, but first I need a new body; a healthier, smaller body…I’m working on that.
