Let me repeat: a woman who has made a career out of deciding what fashions and brands are cool enough to be written about in your favorite mags told meee that she liked my bag. Like, we literally had elevator chat about it.
Not that I blame her. My Chrystie bag is super pretty. It's made of soft black leather with a diagonal snakeskin sectional pocket on the front. Plus, it's surprisingly sturdy and huge inside.
Needless to say, my expensive purchase has now been completely validated. :)
It was my Christmas gift to myself and I did buy it from Gilt Groupe, so I didn't pay retail, thank goodness. Most of the time those "sample sale" sites just clog up my inbox and I don't allow myself to look... but sometimes you can really get some good steals.
Here are a few I like:
Check 'em out and achieve your very own bag/shoe/designer clothing nirvana. It's no secret that it feels that much better when you get it on sale! As in, there's not near as much guilt, haha.
Sidenote: if you need an invite to any of the above sample sale sites, no worries-- leave me a comment and I'll hook you up.
