As the recession hits its one year anniversary (aww), we're actually beginning to see signs that we might be bottoming out. Good timing, considering Net-a-Porter, the premiere online destination for designer fashions, just launched their online outlet store: theOutnet.com.
Budget Babe readers probably won't be overly excited by this news (seeing an Alexander McQueen Elvie python tote drop from $5,380 to $2,690 isn't exactly a great deal) BUT you must admit it's fun to look. And laugh—ha! At those silly, silly prices.
However, theOutnet.com is less than a day old, and is promising to offer patrons some seductive deals that may have me eating my words. Each month, theOutnet will host time-limited Pop-Up Sales, Giveaways and Going, Going, Gone Sales that will provide shoppers that "'get it before it goes' buzz." Hmmm, wonder if they'll have a Mulberry tote for under $200. A girl can dream, can't she?
Check out theOutnet.com and let me know what you think!
