Sporting Life: Up to 80% Off Adidas By Stella McCartney

Sporting Life: Up to 80% Off Adidas By Stella McCartney

Sporting Life Canada is one of the hidden gems of the athletic and outdoorsy gear websites. They carry a fanfare of awesome brands including Patagonia, North Face, Adidas, Under Armour, and more. Right now, they are offering up to 80% off one of my favourite brands – the designer collaboration between Stella McCartney and Adidas.

I find most athletic clothing rather boring – with the odd exceptions, including MICHI NY and some Lululemon gear.  Adidas by Stella McCartney is another exception to the boring status quo with fun prints, exciting designs, and great colours. Sizing is limited.

For our wonderful Mooser runners, the Women’s Run Performance Short is on sale from $70 down to $19.99. Navy and grey colours are in stock with sizes medium and large still available. I like this short because it looks a bit ‘different’. It has a two-layer appearance with the inner layer a sheer mesh and the slightly shorter outer layer opaque. Because the outer layer is shorter than the inner layer, it gives a peak at the mesh without exposing too much.

Pair this short with the Women’s Run T-Shirt, which is available in a medium. Originally $110, the shirt is on sale for just $29.99. This is a loose-fitting tee made with climaproof fabric for protection from wind, rain, and snow. Of course, the rest of your arms will need to worry about these elements, as they are not protected.

This Adidas By Stella Mccartney Women’s Vinyl Swim Jacket is one of my favourite deals. Originally $250, the jacket is now on sale for $49.99. That is roughly 80% off the original price. While a ‘swim jacket’ seems a bit of a stretch, this is a vinyl jacket that dries quickly and features mesh details and a large hood. The jacket is see-through so you can view the swimsuit underneath. I have to say, I like this idea. I always put my swimsuit on before I hit the pool and I prefer to shower at home. I could wear this jacket to and from the pool – over my swimsuit.

For something a bit different, the Women’s Yoga Seamless One-Piece is on sale from $110 down to $39.99. The suit fits a bit large so you will want to size down.

There are plenty of other Adidas By Stella McCartney items to choose from as well. Receive free shipping on $99 or more. Under that minimum, shipping is a flat $10.

The Outnet Coupon: Free Shipping No Minimum ($25 USD Value)

The Outnet Coupon: Free Shipping No Minimum ($25 USD Value)

There is only one promotion I care about at The Outnet (US) – free shipping. Receive free shipping to Canada with the following coupon code to celebrate Mother’s Day. Shipping to Canada usually starts at $24.95 USD so you are saving a large chunk of money with this coupon!

Click here to shop discount designer goods @ Outnet.com now

  • Coupon Code: MOMSDAYOFFER
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: Unknown

Canadian shipping is express shipping so you will receive your purchase in three to four business days after your order has been accepted. All prices are in USD unless you sign into your Canadian account. When you sign in, prices (generally) switch over to Canadian. It is important to know that all duty / customs fees are calculated and charged at checkout. There are no hidden fees or fees you need to pay at your door.

Spring is here and I have been busy looking at dresses. Nothing says spring more than throwing on a sleeveless dress and a pair of sandals for the day. This Kain Nirvana stretch-jersey mini dress is on sale from $197 down to $87.75. This dress qualifies for an extra 30% off at checkout, thus you will pay $72.49.

Designer does not need to be expensive, as we can see from designer collaborations with Target (which just left Canada). The Target designer collections are always hard to get your hands on and they generally resell on eBay for a pretty penny. In the shoes section I found these Peter Pilotto for Target Geometric-print canvas sneakers and Floral-print canvas sneakers. Originally $29.99 a pair, they are now on sale for $17.99 with an extra 30% off at checkout. At checkout they come down to $17.99.

Rebecca Minkoff is a great designer of purses – I even own one but I do find the one I purchased a bit big. I would love to get my hands on this Mini Mac printed coated canvas shoulder bag on sale from $145 down to $79.75. The blue and white stripes with beige accents feel nautical. The same bag comes in a neon pink / orange colour variation (different pattern too) for the same price.

I could not help but look at one of my favourite designers: Alexander McQueen. These MCQ by Alexander McQueen Faux leather high-rise skinny jeans are on sale from $300 down to $90.

The Outnet is a fantastic place to buy designer clothing on a budget. Combine the above deals with free shipping on every order for the best deals possible.

The September: Up to 30% Off Designer Shoes & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 5, 2015 at 10:30 AM

The September: Up to 30% Off Designer Shoes & Free Shipping

The September sells designer shoes for women. While the words ‘designer’ and ‘deal’ hardly seem an apt fit, The September is offering up to 30% off pairs of designer shoes. All orders at The September qualify for free shipping.

I am concentrating on some of the lowest priced pairs of shoes because my own budget for shoes is substantially limited as of late. It is hard to muster up more than $150 for a pair of shoes but I have done so too often lately.

The first shoes to catch my eye were these Marc by Marc Jacobs Leather Mouse Scrunchy Ballerina Shoes. Originally $208, the shoes are now on sale for $135. There is a whole list of reasons why I love these shoes. First, black flats are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. After a night of dancing in heels, walking, running, and more… you can slip a pair of these ballerina flats out of your bag in order to give your feet a break. Black flats are truly your ‘match with everything’ shoe. I also love these flats because of the adorable ‘mouse’ face stitched into the front. As an animal lover and a love of all things cute – these are just adorable.

Some brands have fan followings that are dedicated to that brand over any others. I know of a few women who worship at the feet of Kate Spade. These Kate Spade New York Julip Suede Ballerina flats are on sale from $228 down to $159. These flats are made of red suede and they have a whimsical ‘love’ in gold across the toe. Pair with your favourite blue jeans.

L.L. Bennett is not a brand I am familiar with, though I look at designer goods all the time. However, they make a fantastic pump you need to add to your wardrobe. The Sledge Round Toe Patent Pump is on sale from $345 to $239. This pump is something I would even wear as it has a round instead of an almond toe. Sizes are selling out fast: only a few sizes are left.

For a stronger androgynous look, the Cole Haan Lunargrand Wing Tip Suede Oxford is a good buy. These shoes are styled after the traditional men’s oxford but come in two-tine grey suede. Originally $235, they are now on sale for $159.

There are several other brands to choose from including one of my favourites: Valentino.

Outnet (US): Extra 30% Off Select Items & Free Shipping Coupon ($25+ value)

I love for this offer from Outnet, the best designer outlet store online! Receive free shipping on all orders with no minimum! Since shipping costs to Canada start at $24.95, you are saving a huge chunk of cash.

Click here to shop discount designer goods @ Outnet.com now

  • Coupon Code: HAPPYHOLS
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: Unknown

The last time they had a completely free shipping promotion was back at the beginning of March, I know because I blogged about it. That is how incredibly rare this offer is and why I absolutely must write about it and shop the offer myself.

Now, on top of free shipping, there is an entire selection of items that are an extra 30% off at checkout. Go bananas over the incredible deals you will score on designer goods.

The Kain Kidd striped stretch-jersey dress in size large is my frugal pick if you fit that size. Originally $145, the dress is on sale for $65.25. When you add the Kain dress to your cart, it comes down to $45.68. With free shipping, you are saving those extra fees that Canadians normally pay. In addition, customs and duty are calculated at checkout so there are no surprise landing fees at your door.

Indulge in a little luxury with this Halston Heritage Suede mini dress in sizes 8, 10, and 12. Originally a pricy $465, the dress is on sale for $162.75. The extra 30% off helps knock the dress down to $113.93. You would pay that amount for a nice dress in a regular mall or mid-end department store so shelling out just over $100 for a designer dress is a great deal.

My favourite thing about purses is their size does not depend on my size. I can buy whatever purse I want and it will always fit me whether I gain or lose weight. This Diane von Furstenberg Leather and suede shoulder bag was $575 and is now $247.25. Add it to your cart for the purse to come magically down to $173.08. Sure you will have to pay duty when you check out, but the price will still be substantially less than full retail price and probably even better than a full priced Coach purse. Coach – everyone seems to own a Coach purse these days. There is a snake print version of the Diane von Furstenberg purse for only a few dollars more.

I am super annoyed I missed this Versace scarf as it would have been under $100 and it is so pretty. Outnet (US): Extra 30% Off Select Items & Free Shipping Coupon ($25+ value)

Extra 30% off expiry is unknown.

Constylement Coupon: Exclusive 5% Discount & 5% Bonus for Sellers

Constylement Coupon: Exclusive 5% Discount & 5% Bonus for Sellers

Constylement Canada has sent Bargainmoose an exclusive coupon code for 5% off any purchase of pre-loved designer goods.

Click here to view delicious designer deals @ Constylement Canada now

  • Coupon Code: HOLIDAYMOOSE
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: 10th January 2015

This coupon saves you an extra few dollars on amazing designer finds from other people’s wardrobes. These bags, pieces of jewellery, scarves, and more have been gently loved and now need a new home.

My favourite item on the Constylement website right now is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Petit Noe for $595, originally $1270. While I am not fond of the LV monogram design nor colour combination, I do love the shape of this bag and think the size is just perfect for a daily bag. In addition, the price cannot be beat for an authentic Louis Vuitton. After coupon code, this bag comes down to $535.50. There is only one of these bags so do not hesitate or you may be too late.

For sellers:

As I mentioned, this is a two-part deal. If you have designer goods to sell, Constylement Canada is offering Moosers an extra 5% commission on their designer goods. That means you will make 75% back on the selling price of your designer goods instead of the usual 70% that Constylment offers. To receive this bonus you must mention that you found Constylement through Bargainmoose. As the average selling price is 40 to 70% of original retail price, you can certainly make back a good deal of your original investment in your designer item.

Curious about selling? Here are a few basics you need to know:

There is of course no fee to consign, and if the item doesn’t sell, no charges are applied when the item is returned to the buyer.

Items must be valued at $200 or over. Bags, watches, wallets, and accessories are in the highest demand. Very select clothing (no shoes or sunglasses) will be accepted. You can consult the FAQ for any questions you may have. Quotes for anything you want to consign are free of charge and there is no obligation to consign the item after receiving your quote.

Right now, Constylment is only taking the following brands: Balenciaga, Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Miu Miu, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tiffany&Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Rolex, Chloe, and Burberry. I am disappointed that they are not taking Alexander McQueen as I am always looking for places to buy pre-loved McQueen. He is one of my designer obsessions.

Twice (US) Coupon Code: 40% Discount & No Duty/Taxes

For one day only, receive 40% off any order of excellent condition pre-loved goods at Twice Clothing (US) with the following coupon code TODAY only.

Click here to shop @ Twice Clothing (US) now

  • Coupon Code: CANDY40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 31st October 2014 @ 11:50 PM PST

All items are final sale when you use this coupon code.

I blogged about Twice Clothing once before when they had an introductory 50% off coupon code for first time buyers. This coupon is multi-use so it can be applied towards numerous items and purchases. Yesterday, they had a 30% off coupon code but this one is 10% better!

When I first blogged about Twice clothing, I told Canadians why they should not mind shopping there. Those reasons still apply:

  • Twice covers the import duties / taxes
  • Free shipping to Canada on orders of $149+
  • Only $15 shipping on orders under $149

Twice Clothing is an online second-hand clothing store that sells only excellent condition clothing. They carry brand name and high end designer clothing at up to 90% off original prices. With this extra 40% off coupon code, you can score some serious deals.

I am actually looking for a mid-sized handbag. I want it to be black (or grey) and I want it to be my daily bag so it must have a shoulder strap and not be too ostentatious (in my books). This Coach Bag is a contender, Originally $400 it is priced at just $95.95 on Twice Clothing. After coupon code, it comes down to $57.57.

You can grab just some amazing deals during this sale. These Helmut Lang size 26 pants originally cost $225 and are on sale for $67.95. They appear even to have their tag still attached. After coupon code, pay just $40.77.

I wish the See By Chloe solid grey skirt was in my size as it would then be in my cart. The skirt will only cost you $29.97, a price I would gladly pay for the beauty.

These Tory Burch pants, size 4, are already 85% off. Originally $300 they are on sale for $39.95. After coupon code, they come down to $23.97. That is an outstanding price for designer pants. It is even better than I could find at Nordstrom’s Rack in the USA.

You will not want to miss these deals my dear Moosers!

P.S. I have found their website quite slow; I assume that is because people wanting great deals are flooding it. If it takes a bit to load, just have patience.

Adidas Canada: Up to 50% Off Jeremy Scott Shoes

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Adidas Canada: Up to 50% Off Jeremy Scott Shoes

If you are into funky footwear then you know about Jeremy Scott. He teamed up with Adidas to give us some of the greatest shoes you will ever own. Save up to 50% on Jeremy Scott’s legendary shoe designs.

The Originals Collection by Jeremy Scott is eye catching and will have people staring at your feet. Currently there are styles for men, women, and children on sale. Sizing is very limited for most styles!

My favourite out of this sale are these Tiger Shoes. It is as if you stuck Tigger on your feet! The shoes are covered in soft orange faux fur with black/brown stripes. They shoes even come complete with a tail! I think these would be awesome conversation starters because they are pretty unique. Originally $200, the Tiger shoes are on sale for $140. They have the best size selection available with 4.5 through 12 seemingly in stock.

The Instinct Hi Leopard Shoes are 50% off right now. Originally $200, they are on sale for $100. These shoes are something special with their full grain leather upper with all-over leopard pattern and over-sized tongue. While it says these are for men, you can ignore the gender association. These shoes are made for both men and women; you just need to adjust the size you are buying to make up the difference. For a size 8 women, order a size 7 men’s shoe. The Instinct Hi Leopard Shoes also comes in kid’s sizes for just $65 (originally $130).

While there is only one size left (10.5), I just had to mention these Jeremy Scott Bear Shoes. Seriously, they have the head and arms of a bear coming out of them! Originally $200, they are on sale for $100. I am not sure about a silver bear; I rather wish the shoe were in Winnie the Pooh colours. However, it is still a wicked awesome shoe.

As it is Halloween, I would be negligent if I did not mention the Bones Multicolor Shoes on sale as well. Originally $200, they are now $120. The shoes are made of reptile-print leather and feature three oversized glow-in-the-dark bones! They even have a size 6.5 M, which would translate to 7.5 W – the size I wear. How evilly tempting these shoes are! I am such a sucker for anything that glows.

Hey Moosers, what do you think of Jeremy Scott’s designs? What one is your favourite?

Adidas offers free shipping on $50 or more.

Hudson’s Bay: 47% Off COACH Mini Skinny in Leather – Now $29.15

Posted by on October 8, 2014 at 11:21 PM

Hudsons Bay: 47% Off COACH Mini Skinny in Leather   Now $29.15

It is rare to find steep discounts on Coach products because they are so popular. It seems every woman has a budding collection of Coach or is looking to start one. If you are looking for some Coach on a budget, pick up this Mini Skinny in Saffiano Leather for just $29.15, originally $55.

The Coach Mini Skinny is a compact leather zip-top pouch. It holds keys, cards, and other small essentials for a night out on the town. The wallet also has a practical ID window on the back for flashing bouncers and bartenders to prove your old enough for a little service. This mini pouch is made of textured Saffiano leather with custom hardware. COACH New York is proudly stamped on the front.

This and all the Coach pouches of this size cost $55 so this is a nice discount. I would not pay over $50 for a pouch of this size myself, but I could handle paying under $30.

While you are shopping, you may want to size up a few other discounted Coach items. I found a few others discounted a bit more than is usual.

When you need something a bit larger than the mini, pick up the Madison Double Zip Wristlet In Op Art Pearlescent Fabric or the Small Wristlet In Saffiano Leather by Coach. Both of these beauties are large enough to fit an iPhone or Android as well as a couple credit cards. For the woman that cannot go without some essentials, this is a more practical evening out bag. Slip your hand through the strap so you do not lose it while bar hopping! Each wristlet features both a main and a side compartment. Two card slots are built in (one for your ID, one for your credit card) so you can keep organized. I really like the wristlet in Saffino leather as it is a brilliant pink that resembles raspberries. Each of these was originally $58 and is now on sale for $34.80 apiece.

I also found this Turnlock Ring by Coach for 40% off. Originally $68, it is on sale for $40.80. There are only two rings left in size 6, so if you want to score this deal you will need to get on it quick. My fingers are not quite small enough for a size 6 ring but it is cute.

Hudson’s Bay offers free shipping on orders of $49 when you pay with your HBC card. Regular orders ship free with a minimum of $99. Under that, shipping starts at just $5.95.

TheSeptember Coupon Code: $100 Off Shoes & Free Shipping

The September sells designer shoes for the foot fashionable. You will find designers including Valentino, Cole Haan, Kate Spade New York, and Michael Kors in The September boutique. Right now, receive $100 off any pair of designer shoes and free shipping as well as free returns across Canada.

Click here to shop @ The September Canada now

  • Coupon Code: CELEBRATE100
  • Discount: $100 off designer shoes
  • Expiry: 30th September 2014

There does not appear to be a minimum amount you need to spend. Thus, you can purchase the most inexpensive pair of shoes on the website and still use the coupon code.

In flats, I found the Blair Perforated Leather Sneaker for $195. After coupon code, this pair of designer shoes comes down to $95. This minimalistic sporty sneaker has a sweet textured appearance with an upper in black leather and a lower in white for a stark contrast. This shoe is selling out quickly, probably due to the discount. Sizes 7.5 and 9 are still available though.

In the boots section, I found these beautiful Marc by Marc Jacobs Rubber Rainboot With Buckles. I live in a rainy climate right now (though you wouldn’t know it with the drought going on) so I appreciate a good pair of rain boots. If they are stylish, that is most certainly a plus. These boots cost $238, so after coupon code they come down to $138. That is about the price you would pay for any good quality pair of rain boots, and this way you get designer.

Back in the flats department, the Tock Patent Ballet Flat by Kate Spade comes in either ruby red or black. They feature gold hardware on the bow for sparkle and elastic trim around the rim for comfort. Flats like these can be dressed up or down depending on the rest of your attire. Pair with jeans, a tee, and a cardigan for a casual occasion or pull out your little black dress and some gold bangles for a more formal night out. The Kate Spade flats retail for $198 and will cost you only $98 after coupon code. I think these are well worth the price, and I am tempted to pick up a pair myself as I wore through my previous flats a bit ago. Flats are one of my favourite shoes as they look good with shorts, pants, jeans, skirts, and dresses.

Enjoy free shipping on any order with no minimum. For this and any future The September coupon codes, visit our forum.

Outnet (US) Coupon Code: Free Shipping On $250 & Extra 30% Off Select Items

Outnet.com is the premier online seller of discounted designer brands. Because their prices are so low compared to full price for designer goods, they rarely offer other shopping incentives. The last promotion they had was back in March, so I am pleased to let you know they have another offer for us Canadians. Enjoy free shipping to Canada (a minimum $24.95 US value), with an order of $250 or more.

Click here to shop @ The Outnet.com now

  • Coupon Code: FALLFREESHIP
  • Discount: free shipping with $250 minimum
  • Expiry: 1st September 2014

The Outnet currently has an extra 30% off select items, which merely sweetens the deal. It is not hard to reach a $250 minimum when you are shopping for designer clothing – I assure you!

On my wish list is the bright and vibrant MCQ Alexander McQueen Stretch-mesh dress that was $560 and is now discounted to $196. Luckily, this dress is part of the extra 30% offer. Once I add it to my cart, it comes down to $161.95. While I am not big on pink, I love the cut of this dress and the patterning. The sleeves and upper shoulders are all see-through as is a band around the bottom hem. It is made of a lightweight stretchy fabric that would probably feel amazing against your skin. Sizes small through extra-large are available. I have always been impressed with the quality of MCQ items, so I think this dress is certainly worth the price. What a great buy!

I am going crazy over the number of Hervé Léger dresses in the extra 30% off section while the free shipping coupon code is on. These famous bandage dresses all originally cost over $1000, but you can now buy them for a few hundred dollars. I picked out a few dresses, under $500 before coupon, for you to look at. My favourite is the Color-block bandage mini dress in pink, black, and white. Original priced at $1,290, the dress is now on sale for $451.50. Once you add it to your cart, the dress comes down to $316.05.

Kate Spade (US): Up to 75% Off Surprise Sale

Posted by on August 12, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Kate Spade (US): Up to 75% Off Surprise Sale

Kate Spade (US) has launched another surprise sale with up to 75% off handbags, jewellery, clothing, shoes, and accessories.

You will need to enter your email address and postal code to gain access to the sale. The sale is on for just over another two days, so you have plenty of time to pick out your favourite designer paraphernalia and find some matching accessories.

I was looking for something a bit different. Instead of ‘off the wall’ I found something ‘off the tree’ instead: this Far From The Tree Resin Apple small purse that is as cute as can be. This is something straight out of a Disney fairy tale like Snow White. I could just see a modern day interpretation of the story including a dark-haired darling with pale skin and red lips sporting this apple bag. It has 14-karat light gold plated hardware and cute little green leaves at the top. While the colour description says apple red, the bag looks pink on my screen. I assume it would be redder in person. Originally $328, it is now on sale for $139.

Continuing with the off the tree theme, I ran across this Maximillian Maxwell owlish handle bag. This big brown owl could have just flown down off a branch. He is made of patent leather and suede, and there is at least one other owl accessory out there to match him. I am a huge animal lover, but not sure, I am a fan of this rendition. Good old’ Max is on sale from $345 down to $159.

Even if you are on a tight budget, Kate Spade items start at low prices. You can pick up a Daycation Mini Pouch in either sandpiper or news dot for only $29, originally $79. These make fantastic multi-use bags. Turn it into a purse organizer by putting all your receipts and business cards in it. Use it as a mini purse when you really do not want to carry anything big but need a few credit cards and a couple essentials.

As I have mentioned before, some items are labelled “designed for Kate Spade New York outlet shops.” These tend to be of lesser quality than the normal Kate Spade items. While they are all still designer items, you may want to look for the regular items over the outlet items.

Shipping is $10 to Canada, all prices are in U.S. funds, and you may encounter duty as they also ship from the U.S.

Gilt.com is the premier discount designer sales website in the USA. For 24 hours only, they are offering free global shipping with the following coupon code. This is an offer you really won’t want to miss.

Click here to shop the sales @ Gilt.com

  • Coupon Code: MYGILT
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 5th August 2014 @ 11:59 a.m. EST

Shipping to Canada is usually $9.95 US so you are saving a $10 bill and some change (with the exchange rate) right out of the gates. When shopping from Canada, make sure you have the Canadian flag selected, as all prices will be calculated including duty so there are no surprises at checkout. That is one of the main things I love about Gilt: duty is prepaid so there are no surprises at the door and no outrageous handling fees by couriers.

Let us look at a few of my favourite sales.

Herve Leger

I have a total dream of owning one of his dresses. However, even on sale, this high-end designer’s dresses rarely retail for less than $500, so that day will be a long way off. Maybe if I put aside $25 a month, it might be doable. This Tasha Colorblock Scoop Neck Dress is the least expensive dress in the collection right now. Originally C$1,196.23, it is now C$502.42 (incl. duties).

Kate Spade New York Shoes

We have seen several handbag sales from Kate Spade themselves, but not many shoe sales. Well, you can shop either the Kate Spade Handbag sale or the Kate Spade shoe sale on Gilt.com. This Donna T-Strap Bow Wedge Sandal is available in all sizes right now. It is a cute, understated summer sandal made of quality materials. Originally C$299.69, this pair of shoes is now on sale for C$124.66 (incl. duties).

Shoshanna & More: Up to 80% Off

I do not know all of the designers in this sale, but the prices are good if you can find what you want in your size. I did find some Diane von Furstenberg dresses on sale for over 50% off that are quite attractive. This Bally Jersey Ruched Dress is available in a size large. Originally C$308.50, the little black dress is now on sale for C$137.25 (incl. duties). With free shipping on your purchase, the price you see is the price you pay.

There are many sales on Gilt for women, men, and children. Have a look on their website to see if anything else appeals to you. There is plenty to look at.

I can’t believe how cool this is!  I have a hard time shelling out several hundred dollars for a dress that I’m probably only going to wear once.  Sadly, I don’t lead a terribly glamourous lifestyle, so my chances to get really dressed up aren’t that frequent, but I also don’t want to wear the same old tired cocktail dress whenever the opportunity to glam it up presents itself.  Until recently, I had no idea you could rent a dress.  I’m really excited about this, and I hope you will be too.

Here’s how it works.  While you can look through some of the available dresses without signing up, the free registration allows you to see RFR’s entire collection of designer dresses that are available to rent for up to 90% off the retail cost.  Once you’re in, you can browse the frocks any number of ways:  by date, style, colour, body shape, etc.  You actually rent two dresses… the same dress is shipped to you in two sizes, so you have a back up!  These folks have really thought of everything.  You select the date you would like your dress to arrive (they recommend two days before your event) and presto!  The dress(es) arrive to you and all you have to do after your event is to put both dresses in the prepaid return envelope that came with them, and drop it off at the post office.

Rentals are available for four or eight days.  Each dress includes detailed measurements and most also have several models wearing the dress with their measurements included to help you make the best choice.  I can’t think of another way I would be able to justify the cost of a designer dress, but I know I would feel great walking into an event wearing a great name that I can actually afford!

Shipping

Standard shipping prices are as follows:

  • GTA:  $17.95
  • Ontario & Quebec:  $24.95
  • All other Canadian locations:  $31.95

The Sunglass Hut: $195 Off Versace Sunglasses – Now $100

The Sunglass Hut: $195 Off Versace Sunglasses   Now $100

Summer is burning its way into our eyes and skin right now, and what better way to enjoy the rays then to sport a new pair of sunglasses. The Sunglass Hut has a beautiful pair of Versace Sunglasses on sale for just $99.97, originally $294.95.

You are saving $195 on a pair of sexy designer sunglasses. The lenses are a smoky grey on a white/off white frame. The shape is rectangular in a wrap-around design. According to the website, this design is best for round or oval faces. My face is half way between round and heart shaped, which makes me wonder if these glasses would look good on me. They come with a hard case for ultimate protection.

Buying sunglasses at The Sunglass Hut comes with some major benefits. They offer free shipping and returns in Canada. You have 90 days to return your sunglasses, no questions asked, if they just are not working for you. If your sunglasses are damaged within the first year, they offer 50% off a replacement pair, which is awesome. If my sunglasses last more than two years it is a miracle and they are almost always damaged within the first year.

You can also walk into any Sunglass Hut store to get a free cleaning and adjustments on your sunglasses for life. I often see their kiosks in malls, and even full stores sometimes, so this is a nice bonus.

If these Versace sunglasses do not float your boat, I also found an amazing deal on another designer pair. Pick up these Burberry Sunglasses for only $99.99, originally $255. They come in black with grey lenses. While the Versace lenses are rectangular, the Burberry lenses are square with a thick border. They are quite the statement pair of lenses and they would look good on round or oval faces. However, just because they make a face shape recommendation does not mean it will not look good on other faces. You will probably know from experience what looks best on your face. I am just stoked at the great prices on designer glasses that I found. Burberry is one of my favourite designers, but I know square frames and I do not get along.

With free shipping across Canada and 90 days to return your sunglasses (with free returns) this is a no risk situation. Try out a new pair of designer glasses. They do ship from the U.S., so import fees and duties may apply.

Ssense Canada: Up to 70% Off Designer Clothing

Ssense Canada: Up to 70% Off Designer Clothing

Ssense Canada is hosting one of their semi-annual large sales with now up to 70% off designer clothing, handbags, shoes, accessories, and more.

Ssense is Canadian so you do not have to worry about the usual things you would have to if you were bringing up items from across the border. I rarely blog about them, frankly, because designer goods are expensive and who can afford them unless they are steeply discounted? Well, 70% off is a pretty awesome discount so I thought I would our Moosers a line or two about the sale and fish out some of my favourite deals.

If you know me then you know I love anything with the word Queen on it. Especially if it is preceded by “Alexander Mc-“. It is actually funny, because I am listening to I Want It All by Queen as I wrote this so I felt I needed to clarify. MCQ by Alexander McQueen is his more affordable label and I am eying up the Grey Contoured Bird Print Dress that was $575 and is now discounted to $172. I wish I were a size medium because I would snatch that dress up in a second.

I also have a soft spot for Cloe because they make some sweet stuff. However, they tend to be way out of my price range so I own nothing from the designer. These Black Leather Hardware & Crystal Heels are a phenomenal deal! Originally $1,800, this pair of funky shoes is discounted to $540. That is still rather out of my price range right now, but if i saved up my money for a few months, then I wouldn’t mind spending it on one big purchase like this, as I know I would be buying quality.

T by Alexander Wang is also one of the more affordable brands. He specializes in modern silhouettes while using primarily solid colours. I like his work because my body is not a bulletin board for advertisers: designers or otherwise. This Black Mesh Racerback One Piece Swimsuit is totally my style but not in stock in my size (or I would be buying it despite already owning three swimsuits). Originally $410, it is now on sale for $123.

All prices are in Canadian. Ssense offers free shipping on orders of $100 or more. Under $100, shipping is only $5 to Quebec and Ontario or $8 to other provinces across Canada.
