Contrary to popular belief...I almost never pay retail!

As a matter of fact, I can count on 2 hands the amount of retail pieces in my closet and fondly refer to one of these buys as my "retail shirt." Phil thinks it's funny but I think he appreciates my thrifty side.

Most people think that I pay top price and shop at designer stores to get my look. But those that actually know me, also know that I'm a huge bargain hunter and would rather spend an afternoon perusing the Outlets and TJ Maxx than going to The King of Prussia mall.
From what I've been reading, "Smart consumption" is THE trend of the season and sites like the ones I'm about to share with you are the way to a more fashionable and financially savvier you.
And the more you save, the more you can buy, no?

Check out theOutnet.com where you can score some amazing designer pieces for a fraction of the price...how awesome are these?

RueLaLa is having a sale on HauteHippie, one of my latest obsessions

And HauteLook never disappoints with hot designer labels for women, men and kids.

Be sure to sign-up for their alerts but buy fast cause the best pieces go fast; by the time I finished writing this, the piece I was stalking Sold Out!
Now the search for it somewhere else begins…ahhh the pains of fashion!

Good Luck and if you have other sites to share, please do so, we bargain hunters need to stick together.

Ciao for now!
