Do you ever use online discounters? Sites like Fashionjunkee.com and BeyondTheRack.com (which I’ve talked about in previous blogs) are two off my favourites.
A couple months ago, I saw a commercial for another discount retailer called Gilt.com, so naturally I decided to check it out. This is the spot for serious designer label shoppers as they offer drool-worthy items from Christian Louboutin, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Chanel and Alexander McQueen – at 60% off! And as if it wasn’t easy enough, they have an app so you can shop safely anytime, anywhere.
Like most flash sales sites, quantities are limited so you need to be ready to make a quick decision to avoid disappointment. As most of you have already ascertained, I LOVE shoes…. and all this girl wants it a pair of Jimmy Choos and a pair of classic black Christian Louboutins. In size 8. Is that too much to ask for?
They have them…
Even though I just found out about this site thanks to their big marketing push this year and their cool television campaign, Gilt.com has been in existence since 2007. The site is the brainchild of Kevin Ryan who, according to their website, “recognized a market opportunity to start online flash sales in the United States and introduce consumers to a new, exciting e-commerce experience.” You can read more about their story here. And it looks like this company is expanding as there are a ton of job opportunities there right now.
Are you ready to experience a little gilt today?
