Cyber Storm Shopping

October 29, 2012 by Lila Delilah

Truth is that there is only so much you can stare out the widow watching the wind and rain. The next logical entertainment outlet is surfing the web. In order to provide a bit of entertainment we scouted the web for some of the best online sales or deals and here is what we found:

Target: Kirna Zibete

The almost-chic box store launched their collaboration with Soho chic boutique Kirna Zibete on September 9. The merchandise is now marked down anywhere from 30% to 50% off. We highly endorse this huge lip ring for $10.50 from $15 and the lips envelope clutch for $21 from $30. The clothing is a bit more hit or miss. The style is great but that cheap polyester makes our skin crawl.

Net-a-Porte’s discount site, TheOutnet can be better than a trip to Woodbury Common. The site is filled with unbelievable past season designer merchandise. Doesn’t everyone need a pair of combat heels? Well Acne thinks so and for 65% off these will do the trick ($270from $770. This simple print Marni dress is stylish, simple, yet affordable at $370 from $745. Then of course, you’re going to need to snag these Miu Miu glitter high-tops for $198 from $500. You can also go the other way and grab these Reed Krakoff shark leather sandals for $255 from $850 or suede jacket for $750 from $2500.

Although Yoox carries almost every brand imaginable you have to be careful that you’re not paying more than you should. On some occasions we have found products on the site more expensive than retail. Today we browsed closely and found this black-and-white Lanvin print dress for $2000 from $2500 or Proenza Schouler jacket spice up simple jeans ($660 from $825). Our favorite feature of Yoox is that you can place an item in your “dream box” and the site will alert you when the product is discounted. We’ve snagged some amazing deals this way.

Sometimes you can’t dismiss the obvious. Overstock has tucked away some very interesting designer surprises. To sort through the huge assortment of merchandise on the site we usually use the sort feature to pull up the most expensive items. (Really, are you surprised?!) Today, we found a blue Chloe Sally bag for $1350. The medium sized bag is $1900 at Saks. Then a Stella McCartney bag from last season is $1200.
