If you are like me and the cash you once had now belongs to KIDS, MORTGAGE, PETS, SCHOOL ACTIVITIES, UPKEEP OF VEHICLES…………… I think you get my point. I love designer duds but I don’t always have the designer money. Listed below I have a few websites and stores that allow you to keep the same look but spend less of the green stuff.

If you are a Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Jimmy Choo, Chanel gotta have it type girl, then Bluefly is definitely your place. Bluefly stocks merchandise that is currently in season and carries over 350 brands.



Gilt Groupe:

Each day you are greeted with a e-mail from this site letting you know which designer’s are available each day at a discount price. This sites offers everything from Rachel Roy, Marc Jacobs, Juicy Watches, Versace, Burberry just to name a few.

Selected by People Magazine as one of the 15 ways to save money. This website offers up to 75% off retail prices. On this website I have seen everything from Calvin Klein home decor to savings on Omaha Steaks.



Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Loehmanns, Nordstroms Rack, and Filenes Basement:

If you like me however need interaction with people from time to time…. The 5 stores listed above, never serve as a let down. I like to call them my faithful hits, if I don’t find what I want in one I always can go to the other. It also helps to sign up for their e-mail alerts…last year, Loehmann’s sent me a a birthday coupon, entitling me to 20% off any item of choice, good throughout the entire month of December.
