Net-a-Porter's NEW Outlet Site

Clockwise from top left: DVF dress, Oscar de la Renta suit, Jill Stuart dress, Philip Lim blazer, Tibi sandals, and MINT jodi arnold dress.

If you're anything like me — I'm extremely budget-conscious and almost never purchase apparel at full price. (well, excluding shoes!) You may know Net-a-Porter as that designer e-commerce site you will never be able to afford to shop from. But last week, Net-a-Porter's outlet site called the Outnet launches. The items on this site are still expensive, but you have a far greater likelihood of being able to afford something here than on Net-a-Porter.

Labels include Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Derek Lam, Diane Von Furstenberg, Phillip Lim, Jill Stuart, and Oscar de la Renta. The Outnet is like a never-ending online sample sale, which is great, because you don't have to leave your chair to shop, or throw elbows with the girl trying to swipe the last dress in your size.

However, a lot of the stuff is a few seasons old, so you'll want to search for things that are relevant and won't go out of style. Approach shopping here as you would the first day of the Barneys Warehouse Sale: Buy things you think are a worthy investment or that you think will sell out quickly. Like a sample sale, prices on this site will probably go down on items that aren't selling.

  1. OOOOWWWWW! Can't wait to shop here. Net-a Porter's stuff is expensive. Have you checked out Rue La La yet? If you need an invite, just email me. They have great sales, but you have to move fast, those bitches are aggressive.


I look forward to hearing your thoughts - be honest ladies:
