Smartbargains Splurges.

Posted in shopping advice by bluewellesleyblue on October 28, 2008

Selection is, at times, a little hit and miss on Smartbargains. Still, I’ve had great luck with finding a rare splurge or two through that online equivalent of Loehmann’s. I’ve bought a purse there as well as a black wool peacoat – which was also being carried in Macy’s at the time for full price but for a seasonal coat promotion that still left it a little more expensive – and I adore both of those purchases. Of course, for higher end designer stuff, it’s still going to be pricey, but there are substantial discounts all around. Even if you’ve never shopped there and are not interested in anything they have at the moment, I do think it’s worth signing up for an account there since they frequently do additional discount offers for their members.

Here are two of the things I might consider if only I hadn’t already indulged in my splurge for the semester:

DKNY Asymmetrical Peacoat, $150; Francesco Biasia Satchel, $179.

The DKNY coat looks especially nice. I have a special fondness for wool coats of all sorts, and the asymmetrical front makes it very stylish.
