In case you missed our discussion about our latest unbreakable habit–no, not alcohol or sex — we feel the need to repeat ourselves:
We’re obsessed with invitation-only shopping sites. Imagine a daily cyber-space running-of-the-brides sale at Filene’s Basement… such is the adrenalin rush we feel once we identify a precious treasure we must possess. Fearful that another more unscrupulous bitch’ll scoop us, we troll our fave Gilt Groupe precisely at noon each day to see which great Missoni or Miu Miu just arrived.Rue La La is our close second, and for home we’re swept away by One Kings Lane (btw, they have Airdelsur and Somma Cashmere on sale this Wednesday 10/21) .
Aroused though we are, we do have our standards—our rules are to buy pieces we’ve actually seen before in real life, and only if they’re being offered at ridiculously deep discount. Even then, a smart shopper must read and understand the return rules for each item.
We are Bitches on a Budget, after all.
