Website of the week
As you all know, I love a good bargain. One of my favorite places in the city to bargain-shop is Loehmann's, probably due to its proximity to my apartment, but I always manage to find great stuff there. So I was delighted to hear that Loehmann's has a partnership with Smart Bargains, so now you can shop Loehmann's excellent deals online. Smart Bargains, however, is a huge site, very similar to, with everything from electronics to Prada bags. You can seach or browse by category, but just a warning--the site has a ton of stuff, so just browsing can be kind of intimidating. Some interesting finds: I love Sonia Rykiel perfume and can't seem to find it anywhere...until now (a lot of hard-to-find and discontinued fragrances are available here); check out this recent-season Marc Jacobs bag (everyone from Louis Vuitton to Kate Spade is also represented, handbag-wise); predictably, I love this Prada butterfly trick from last season; I absolutely love this half-price Tod's boot; and this Frette sheet set, at $500, is quite the bargain (original price: $1200) and puts my Dwell sheets to shame. Plus, everything ships for a flat rate of $6.95, with no-hassle returns. So shopping at Smart Bargains might not be as satisfying as shopping at an actual discount store, but it's far more pleasant than sifting through the clearance racks.
