I was browsing as I do EVERYDAY…LOL…NET-A-PORTER.COM and saw these light green Ombre Patent Leather Pumps by Rubert Sanderson on sale for $357 (down from $595). I really can’t wear heels any longer but for one of you who can I think they could be a nice addition to your Fall ’08 wardrobe. Any takers?
Archive for the 'Sale' Category
I was surfin Net-A-Porter.com and realized they were having a sale. There were several things I liked but none in my size :(. The few pieces that I really liked were also not my size but maybe they will be yours ;). Enjoy & happy shopping.
As I was wandering the great streets of NYC the other day, I came upon a store that was selling jewelry at unbelievable prices. Granted some of these pieces may not look that expensive but I think others look like they cost more than what I paid for them. So here is the challenge I put towards you readers: The first person who correctly guesses how much I paid for each of these items wins one of the items (the winner can pick the item). Good Luck.
I had to return something to Bloomingdale’s yesterday and I looked on their site to see if there was something I could exchange it for. I found these items on sale that were Patent leather and/or Metallic. You should check them out:
