Barneys Warehouse Sale

February 3, 2010

While driving through Downtown LA this weekend, I noticed a ginormous banner hung outside the LA Convention Center bearing the BEST news. What better way to start the month off than finding some fashion goodies at the Barneys Warehouse Sale?!

Arriving in our two favorite cities (NY & LA, of course!), the warehouse sale is highly anticipated and offers 50-75% off regular priced items. I’ve never been to one before, so I’m SO excited for this!! See below for the dates and location details for both cities:

Los Angeles: 2/4 – 2/15
LA Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St.

New York: 2/11 – 2/28
255 W. 17th St.

The shopping frenzy begins at 8AM sharp on the first days of both sales! Can’t wait to pick up some springtime blouses and shoes, shoes, shoes.

Mike & Chris Sale at Reverse!

December 15, 2009

As if I haven’t been buying myself enough goodies this past month, one of my favorite (usually overpriced) lines went on sale today on Reverse! EFF! I love the style of Mike & Chris–comfy and casual. Thankfully, at 70% to 80% off, I can finally afford to pick up some of their pieces!

Glen Zip Up (Orig. $216, Sale $65) Long and lean, and great for throwing over skinny jeans. My favorite part is the shoulder flap in the back.

Dustin Cotton Voile V Neck Tunic (Orig. $160, Sale $39) I love, love tunics. I love, love white.

3 Button Tights (Orig. $68, Sale $19) My mom makes fun of me for wearing leggings because they shouldn't be considered pants, but the button detailing on these will hopefully make them look a little more legit.

I’ve been lusting after a Mike & Chris hoodie ever since I first laid eyes on the line (a leather jacket might be next on my list now)! For less than $200, how ever could I have resisted? I even learned a new trick on how to check my credit card number without my supervisor noticing. Hurry on to the site because things are selling out quickly! Click here for an invite to Reverse.

Sephora Friends & Family 2009

October 20, 2009

Please follow link!



This page has moved to

sephora-holidaySephora’s Friend’s and Family started today and runs until November 2. I haven’t had much time to think of all the fun things I want to get, so all I have picked up so far are the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and Soy Face Cream. After getting a facial at the Fresh Espace back in April, I’m in LOVE with their products and am excited about the chance to incorporate them into my daily skincare regime! I have read so many great reviews and the fact that they smell so fresh (I know, I know, but it’s so true!) is just an added bonus. If I can think of some great undereye or anti-aging treatments, I’m definitely in for another order before this ends…

Although the promo hasn’t been advertised nearly as much as in the past (what, no special flyer or email notification, Sephora?), you can enter FF2009 for 20% off your entire purchase. Remember you get 3 free samples of your choice and free shipping on orders over $50.

Cheers to the start of F&F savings for us all!

Reverse-Reverse Online Outlet

October 15, 2009

I recently discovered‘s online outlet, Reverse and can’ t believe I didn’t know about it earlier! The site offers real deals on a bevy of goodies, free returns (like its parent company), and $5 flat rate shipping on all orders. After some quick perusing, I’m excited to say that there are definitely some great finds!

Gaspard Yurkievich Scallop HeelGaspard Yurkievich Scallop Back Heel (orig. $381, sale $141) I la-LOVE the orange detailing and scalloped back! Why, oh why can’t I be a size 8?!?

Susan Monaco BaratheaSusana Monaco Barathea Tie Coat (orig. $550, sale $193) I’m always on the lookout for perfect white coats and this one is absolutely gorgeous. The cropped sleeves and dainty collar are a perfect contrast to the more traditional winter coat.

Michelle Mason Halter DressMASON by Michelle Mason Belted Halter Dress (orig. $352, sale $124) A girl can never have too many black dresses! This would be an instant classic for a night out and the pockets and plunging neckline make it fun as well.

With so many options, this will quickly become one of my favorite online shopping destinations. Sample sale prices without the hassle of waiting for start times or worrying about no return policies!! Reverse is by invite-only so click here to join! 🙂

Recession-Friendly Tip

February 12, 2009

Do you shop online? Do you love getting packages? Are you human? I am positive everyone in my generation buys clothes/shoes/electronics/everyday items from the Internet, particularly if you are part of the working world (*plays “Miss Independent” track!*) and don’t have time to browse in-store. If you said yes to the above questions, I hope you’ve been using a rebate system for all those online purchases, like Ebates or FatWallet.

How they work: you have to click through the site to get to the desired retailer and make your purchase from there. The sites track the clickthroughs and will automatically post rebates to your account after a successful checkout. A surprising number of companies offer discounts through these two sites, you just have to check which one is higher – ex. Nordstrom (6% at FW vs. 3% at Ebates), ShopBop (6% at Ebates), and my latest obsession – Hayden Harnett (4% at Ebates, not at FW).  It takes a little time for the cash back to be approved and processed, but hey, it’s as good as finding money in your pocket after you’ve forgotten about it!

I signed up for these services years ago, but didn’t fully utilize them ’til now. Back in the good ol’ college days, I had classes three out of the five weekdays, and enjoyed something called Leisure Time to take many a shopping trip. Now, I prefer checking out online and looking forward to receiving packages. Something about the anticipation of deliveries makes me happy, even though I know exactly what is coming =P Before I pull the trigger though, I check both rebate sites to see if there’s cash back available. If anything, it helps with shipping. I was reminded about these sites today because I got a notification that I’ve accumulated $40 from the past few months’ self-gifts.

Hope this puts some dollars back in your wallet while doing your parts to contribute to an economic upswing!
