Few women can deny the complete and utter beauty that is a pair of designer heels, or a gorgeous designer handbag. However, not every woman can afford to pay the high prices that designers ask for these well made, lovely pieces. Or so they think. Many women spend their days wishing they could afford to slip on a pair of Christian Louboutin heels every morning, grab her Gucci handbag and run out the door for another fabulous day of doing whatever it is she spends her days doing. Other women spend their days making this happen on a budget.
No, you don’t need to head to your local thrift store to buy used items wealthy women discarded like Brad Pitt did to Jennifer Aniston. And you definitely don’t need to buy black market knock offs and hope that no one can tell that your bag is a faux – knockoff pieces are cheap and illegal, and it’s easy to tell the real thing from a fake. All you need to do is get on the computer and visit a few high-end department store websites. By signing up as a customer on the Saks Fifth Avenue website, you will get daily emails featuring major sales on high-end designer apparel and accessories.
Saks sends an email each morning around 11 am EST detailing the Saks FashionFix sale of the day. Each day the sale is different; it ranges from children’s apparel, shoes, handbags and accessories, and individual designer sales. All sales are 50 to 80 percent off retail price and each sale lasts from 24 hours to a few days, but items sell quickly. Each day the sale is different, and each day you can see upcoming sales for the week. Sales start at noon each day. As a member of the Saks FashionFix program, you will be able to purchase high-end designer items for a fraction of the cost, every single day.
As a recipient of the Saks FashionFix email, you will be privy to sales that include an entire collection of Seven for All Mankind jeans 80 percent off the retail price. You will find designer dresses by Mark and James by Badgley Mischka and Tibi for 75 percent off the retail price. You will find Stuart Weitzman shoes for under $100.
Being fabulous does not mean you need several additional zeroes at the end of your bank balance; it simply means you need to know where to look and when to buy. High end designer apparel is no longer something only celebrities and heiresses can afford. Every women can dress like a fashion maven without hurting her budget or feeling too badly when the baby gets a little yogurt on her new DvF dress.
