Friday Finds - Online Designer Deals

Like every other female on the planet, I love to shop. I will also cop to being a bit of a label snob when it comes to certain items....I'm a Coach purse girl all the way and I secretly get a little thrill out of being able to tell people that those shoes they just complemented me on are Michael Kors. Childish, superficial, and immature...yes I know...but I fully realize that and accept it.

Unfortunately, I'm also like a lot of women in that the only thing standing between me and a closet full of designer label clothing is severe lack of funds. More often than not....the designer items in my closet have been the result of very generous Christmas or birthday gifts from my parents.

So what's a girl to do when her bank account doesn't cooperate with her need for those new True Religion jeans or Juicy bag? Get on the internet of course!!! There's been a huge increase in online, exclusive members only shopping websites. Truthfully...the "exclusive" and "members only" titles are a bit of a joke, meant, I would assume, to lend each of these sites some....well exclusive feelings for their members....but honestly...all you really need is an email address...joining each of the sites below is completely free, although sometimes by invitation what are you waiting for? Get joining and start saving!!

Haute Look
This site doesn't limit themselves to just clothing, but holds continuous, 48-hour sale events with the world's top fashion, accessories, beauty, kids and home brands. Each day, HauteLook offers discounts of 50 to 75 percent off to millions of their members.

Features the most sought-after brands in fashion, home and beauty–at prices up to 80% off.  New brands are featured each day in sales starting at 12 p.m. EST. Sales last 40 hours, or until items are sold out. They also have weekly giveaways which has a surprise start time and last 7 hours (in most cases).You can also refer friends and receive a $25 shopping credit for each friend that buys. Free Money!!!

Membership at Rue La La is shaped by it's own current members. Membership is free, but is by invite only from a current member. Invite a friend that buys and you'll get a $10 credit.
