designer discounts at HauteLook.com

by frédérik sisa

I'm enjoying a staycation at the moment, but I thought I'd still take the opportunity, however short, to mention a website I recently discovered. I was waiting on writing it up for such a time as when I could place an order and get the full experience. It will come as no surprise, however, that Standard Complaint No.1 is in full force. First, however, the basics. The website is HauteLook.com. They host designer short sales in which everything from apparel, accessories and makeup to home appliances can go for huge discounts - try the likes of 40% to 65%. Sales may last for 24 to 72 hours, which means you don't get much time to hem and haw over the products...And as for the brands, they can range from Tag Heuer, Zoe NYC, Laura Mercier and Urban Decay to the ridiculously expensive (even post-discount) Great China Wall. It's rather amazing, really, just how many unique specialty brands there are to discover in addition to the more recognizable names.

The only problem is that there are very few men's sales. Tag Heuer watches is the only one going on at the moment; I haven't seen shirts or apparel for a while. Ladies, however, should have a ball with all of HauteLook's selection. So give it a try. It costs nothing to register and check out the sales. And if you do buy something, I'd love to know about your experience for a future post. In the meantime, I'll keep my eye open for the guys and report back when I have something to report.

Their constant emails were a bit of a turn-off. Wholey spam guacamole! But I didn't know they sold Laura Mercier... ah well, say-lavie.
