I am not a big fan of sample sale sites – I don’t really endorse them because I don’t use them. Most of the time if I find something on one I’d actually like to buy (the prices are usually REALLY good), the item is being held in someone else’s cart and I have to spend the next hour refreshing the site and waiting for it to be available again. Not a good use of my time.
For some reason today though, I was enticed enough by the James Jeans sample sale on Rue La La to check it out, and may end up buying a pair. AND, I wanted to pass on to you that there are a couple of pairs available in sizes 33 and 34!!
Well…in the time it took me to write this (about 10 minutes because I am also on chat, and writing another post on another site) all the size 32’s (my size) are sold out, as well as the larger sizes. See what I mean???
If you’re interested in checking it out, go ahead, your size might still be left, and all the jeans are just $69.99 (I have a pair of James Jeans that I like very much, hence my decision to check out the sale). If you’re not a member already, feel free to use my invite link 🙂

ugh. i totally know what you mean! sample sale websites have become more of a virtual retail therapy for me. i can just ‘put’ something in my shopping cart and 20 minutes later, it’s gone again, and i’ve managed to save my $$!

LOL, maybe i should start doing that too. i’m just not good at making split second purchasing decisions – kind of defeats my 24-hour rule (waiting for 24 hrs to buy something). oh well, no big deal, they probably wouldn’t have worked anyway…(or i’ll just keep telling myself that)
I anxiously log onto sites like Gilt, Haute Look, etc. at the sale start time only to find every item I want on hold or sold out. The few times that I have actually acquired anything, I immediately regretted once I recieved the items. While you can find some bargains, these sites encourage impulsive decisions which may not pay off due to the limited return policies. By the way, I think your 24 hour rule is a smart rule, and I will try to implement it.
yeah, everytime i make an impulsive buying decision, i regret it. hence the 24 hour rule. that’s not to say that i don’t eventually regret buying something i DID wait 24 hrs to buy…but it’s not as likely LOL. AND i hate return for store credit policies, normally i won’t buy just because of that…so it’s good all my sizes sold out!
