Great Clothes, Even Better Prices

With the holiday season not even a month away, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it, and that means that holiday party season will be in full swing. Being a full time college student, I know the value of a dollar, and that I normally don't have many dollars. So just for you all, I've compiled my favorite sites for online shopping that gives you great deals for designer items. These sites will be more than helpful when your searching for that perfect party dress to impress that cute guy in bio!

Rent the Runway
-Two Harvard Business ladies thought up this dream website. They wanted to be able to have that dream wardrobe that every girl wants, just without having to take out another student loan to make it happen; and so it became Rent The Runway. This site lets you rent clothes for a specified number of days that you select. Most of the prices offered are 90-95% of the retail value! Rent the runway has also had some major press lately, recently their name was featured in the apartment of the new Gossip Girl nemesis Juliette. Click on the link here to sign up!

-I was just recently turned to i-ella by an email from our fashion group on campus, and oh my they have some really great stuff! The cool thing about this site is that you can buy, sell, or even trade your own clothes and others. Also every month they feature a celebrity that auctions off some pieces from their closet and all the proceeds go to their charity; last month they featured Whitney Port. Right now their celebrity if the Law and Order star Elisabeth Rohm. Click here to sign up!

Gilt Groupe
-This was one of the first online discount sites that I got invited to and I have made so many purchases through them! They also offer mens, womens, children, home, and even a jetsetter and city category that have special items just for those purposes. The stuff on gilt sells out quick, so stay up to date about when the sales are beginning and ending. They also have a wonderful little app for your iPhone that will text you when a sale is beginning. Click here to sign up!

Rue La La
-Rue La La is essentially the same as all these wonderful sites I've been sharing with you guys. They also offer travel destinations, clothes and accessories, and home decor. However, a factor that sets Rue apart from others are that they actually have boutique categories that you can always click on and browse through. Rue La La also got some press from a popular TV show when Whitney Port's line, Whitney Eve, was announced that it would be sold on Rue La La helping Whitney get her name and line out the masses!

-This site has really really great prices, most of the stuff on the site I can afford regularly. They offer men's, women's, children's, home decor and travel destinations! Ideeli also has a link called ideelACCESS that has super special goodies at great prices! Click here to sign up!

All of these shops are also great places to frequent when thinking about Christmas shopping! They all offer really great gifts for your loved ones that you won't need to pay an arm and a leg for!

Hope everyone is having a great week and happy shopping!
