Earlier this year, I had to buy a gifts for a couple that are nearly impossible to impress. They have both been all over the world and have the privilege to be able to afford themselves most anything they like. The gift had to be thoughtful and useful. After all, who needs more clutter?
While shopping online, I became intimately acquainted with the website Forzieri. The website isn’t new but it has some really great Euro fashion and classics. If that’s your thing, we suggest you shop now if you like European design and style coupled with great all-American markdowns. Right now, the site is hosting a summer luxury sale were many designer items are discounted up to 70%. Plus, if you can save an extra 20% by using the code EXTRA20 at checkout.
We couldn’t believe how many hard-to-find designer bags are on sale. Here’s Valentino Rockstud patent leather bag that comes to $1200 from $3158. The blue Jil Sander market totes are a steal for $400 from $1275 and even a fashion street style fashion blogger can afford to rock this Kenzo bag at fashion week with a price of just over $300 from almost $1000. Check out this European-feel Leonardo del Fuoco iPad bag that comes to $1020 from $2520. The bright-green, embossed croc, against the hard black leather, is as eye catching as a Celine bag and it’s perfect for work– even if you work at Vogue. This Philipp Plein black studded bag is also a great value for $710 from $2215.
Although it’s hard to get past the markdown on handbags without breaking the bank, you should also check out these Loriblu studded biker boots for $310 from $780 and these McQ Alexander McQueen bumble-bee yellow and black heels are $220 from $675. A Valentino leather Rockstud bracelet is $160 from $345 and this Zadig & Voltaire studded belt is a good price too at $150 from $278. Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh–the John Galliano skinny scarf is perfectly on trend for fall 2014 (see Prada’s runway) and it’s less than $80 from $186.
Although this is European, the VAT has already been removed and shipping is free with a $150 purchase. The site’s gift wrapping is expensive at $7 but some times the presentation is as valuable as the gift. In this instance, I would say the extra price is worth it.
