“friends don’t let friends shop retail.”


Banana Republic tank dress (a pretty penny) | Romeo & Juliet Couture pleather jacket (via Hautelook) | Big Buddha “Aaron” clutch (via Hautelook) | Sam Edelman “Garner” Gladiator Sandals (via Hautelook



This outfit is a like a little homage to my obsession with Hautelook, a free members-only e-tailer that’s every bargain lover’s dream.  Every morning, the site is updated with new “sales” in categories ranging from apparel and beauty to lifestyle and travel with savings up to 75% off. Speaking of 75%, as much of this outfit is made up of Hautelook purchases. Today’s events: William Rast denim (with a Deal of the Day on white ankle skinnies for $49!!), Oscar de la Renta sunnies, and Vince Camuto handbags, to name a few.

As if designer labels at deep discounts weren’t enticing enough, members receive $10 in shopping credits each time a referred friend makes a first purchase on the site. Let’s do the math: if you sign up (it’s free an easy) and email your invite link to five girlfriends, who then make a purchase, you get $50 in credits to spend on whatever your little heart desires! Kind of awesome, right?

Don’t have time to sit in front of the computer and wait for new sales to launch? There’s an app for that.

  5. I am a sucker for a good deal. How nice is it to find them online, you don’t have to push and shove your way in and you don’t have to go through piles, just pages.
    Your dress is super cute.
