I'm Inside My Email

So, slightly random but my face turned up in my email today. When I was a lot younger, I was a model (a.k.a. I was going through that whole... "I don't know what I want to be when I grow up even though I just left college" phase.) I still have my mother agency in Boston, and recently booked a job for Rue La La. Was I the last person to hear about them? I'm pretty sure...

When I showed up there were racks of designer clothing and accessories scattered all over the studio, and I started drooling over the Valentino gowns. It's a giant sample sale! If you've never been to their website, it's "invitation only" but what that really means is that you get an email from a friend, click on the link and join. It's free, and your friend gets $10 credit if you buy something, thus encouraging everyone to spread the word. I tell you, I'm not in this for the $10. I was just really impressed by the bling and the beauty of some of the items they carry and thought you all might find something perfect for your wedding. The catch is that much like a sample sale, there are limited quantities on these items and limited time to buy. A "boutique" is only open for a few days, so you have to snatch things up quick.

How about this Erickson Beamon diamond ring? Was $25,000 marked down to $7,000.

or this Vera Wang bracelet? Retails for $1550, marked down to $400.

The sales aren't limited to clothing and accessories. They also sell discount vacation and spa packages. How about manicures and pedicures for 3 people at Spa Chakra in NYC? Usually $360, on sale for $239...

They have new designer shops opening every weekday online. Feel free to use my email to join up, or ask your friends if they have an account so that you can share the wealth.
