online boutiques

19 05 2009

Ever wanted a designer bag but reluctantly smartly kept your credit card in its rightful place after seeing the retail price? Yeep, that’s me, Miss Broke Savvy Shopper. Last year, I was invited to join a members only online boutique, Rue la la. It’s owned by (another savvy shopper must). Rue la la’s boutiques are open only for 2 days, which is sometimes too long for a really popular boutique which sells out in an hour. There’s a new boutique that opens each day, so there’s lots of choices! Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Dior, Tourneau are just some of the designer brands they’ve had.


Sometimes if you don’t act quickly, a really popular item will sell out immediately. Like the Kooba Jaylin bag, which I missed out on. Twice. I’m also super indecisive. And those bags are cute. Happy to say, I am a proud owner of a cute pair of Betsey Johnson pumps and Phoebe Couture dress, both purchased at deep discounts from Rue la la.

Next up, I will post about another one of my fave online boutiques (where I actually bought said designer bag at half the retail price). So check it (tomorrow)!  P.S. If you want an invite to Rue la la, just holla at me.
