Face Candy Fashion

I have what some would call a "shopping problem." I can't help myself. I get paid, and I want to spend. BUT, growing up, I was always taught that you should never pay full price for anything.
My Mom should have a website, actually, because I don't know anyone who bargain shops like she does. While she likes to peruse the racks herself, I prefer to surf the web for my deals.

Here are some of my favorite fashion websites:

1. This is a free site that does all your shopping for you. Select your favorite apparel brands (mine include Diane Von Furstenburg, Juicy Couture, Tory Burch) then select your size. Decide whether you want daily, weekly or semi-weekly emails of which new items go on sale in your size. I was notified of this bright pink and orange Tory Burch bag that was originally $225, and I got it for $157.

2. Type in what brand or style you're looking for, and get the listings of where you can buy it. Super easy to navigate and they have Shopstyleliving and shopstylekids too.
This is where I found my Michael Kors Santorini Chain Strap Purse, originally $198, for $99 at

3. A platform for premium brands to reach customers directly. HauteLook club members have free access to the latest merchandise at discounts of up to 75% off of retail prices. Prior to each sale, an invitation stating the sale start and end date will be sent to your email. They sponsor many of your favorite well known and lesser known brands (lately including BCBG Max Azria, Katherine Kwei, Mystique and Taryn Rose). Sometimes they even do cosmetic sales (like Smashbox or Stila). My latest and greatest find was this BCBG Max Azria dress, regularly $198 for $99. I've been dying to get one of these, because they are so form-fittingly similar to the gorgeous (and insanely expensive) Herve Leger dresses.
