Spicy Sale // Stella McCartney

February 28, 2012

It’s no secret around here that I LOVE a great bargain, and although my clothing budget has fluctuated quite a bit over the last ten years or so, I think it’s one thing about my shopping habits that will never change.  One of the main tips I share with clients and friends that ask how to make thoughtful and value-based purchases, is to know and frequent the best deep-discount online shopping sites for their personal budget and taste.

My all-time fave, and possibly the most visited site from this little laptop of mine is theOutnet.com, and that’s why I am SO pleased to tell you about yet another one of their amazing sales that starts today… British-designer Stella McCartney has some of the most highly covetable pieces out there, but the original retail prices are FAR outside my price range.  That’s where theOutnet comes in!

They’ve got so many of her incredibly chic and wearable pieces for sale right now (the biggest batch of Stella to hit the site so far!), and because of the amazing discounts, it makes these kinds of purchases much more justifiable in my book.

I’ve had my eye on this citrus-y pleated skirt ever since it hit the blog circuit months ago, and had so much fun styling it up for a night out on the town!  The lady-like high waist balances out the sexy side-slits, and of course I can’t ever resist bright colors or crazy prints.  I paired it with a bralette top and a sporty little windbreaker jacket, and my new booties that I nabbed at the Barney’s Warehouse Sale last weekend.

My other favorites included a sweet eyelet shift dress, an oversized denim tee, and another pretty pleated skirt (that happens to remind me a bit of Neapolitan ice cream – yum!).  Keep your eyes peeled, because I’ll be featuring a few other Stella McCartney pieces from theOutnet on the blog this week, and I’d love to know if you end up snatching anything up for yourself!

    It takes guts to go outside with a bare midriff – I applaud you! That skirt is amazing – I like that it has a kind of retro print.
