Being a poor college student, who happens to have a penchant for expensive clothes, makes it hard to live in a city like New York without going into serious debt. Sample sales, Barney's warehouse sale and seasonal clearances have definitely helped to keep my wardrobe and wallet happy.
Anyway, a few days ago a fellow fashion-conscious friend introduced me to Gilt Group, a website featuring sample sales; luxury sample sales, to be exact. They offer a variety of brands for men, women, children and jewelry at members-only prices.
Thanks to him, I am now a member of this non-exclusive email list that lets me know when Gilt.com has their sales, what new sales are coming up and when they're ending; Its like an alarm clock for shopping.
This weeks sales? Acne Jeans, Judith Ripka and... Nina Ricci! Isn't the internet tragically wonderful?
