We have a little holiday treat this morning for all Recessionistas around the globe. Today’s post is about a fabby fashion site offering some nice discounts on high-end designers. I just found out about this site, and I have to share it with my readers. The above screen shot is of Catwalktocloset.com, a members’ club offering some of my favorite designers like Alice Temperley, Giles Deacon, Marc Jacobs, Jovovich Hawk & Vera Wang for alot less. Their selection is truly wonderful. The prices are a little higher than some of the other items that I’ve shared here on the blog, but these are not trendy pieces offered here. I would say these are more of the type of “investment pieces” that you can keep in your wardrobe as classics for years. They can be worn from season to season, and that helps to justify the higher price tag.
As some of you know, I am a bit of an “Anglophile“. Quite simply, I love the “mother country”. I travel to the UK at least once a year for business and a good shopping fix. Recently, I was reading a great article in the Daily Mail online about a Grazia survey on Recessionista Women. One thousand women were interviewed for the Grazia survey while out shopping in London. The Daily Mail reports that with the economic downturn, Recessionistas are not going to stop shopping, they are just going to shop more carefully. In the survey, “a third (32 per cent) admitted they no longer shell out for risky one-season trends, with a growing trend for choosing classics like a little black dress, knee-high boots and a well-cut coat that will last longer (28 per cent).” I couldn’t agree more.
This is why sites like Catwalk to Closet are essential to Recessionistas. They ship globally and the site lists sizing for US + UK. Until Dec. 12th , the site offers a 20% discount on all designer items on the website. Simply use the promotion code : guiltfree.
A special offer is available from a link on the home page, on the bottom left of the page. Anyone who signs up for a free Catwalktocloset.com membership, can sign up to receive a pair of £120 Bruce Oldfield sunglasses for just £10. I have already signed up for that offer
And I have my eye of several other great pieces from the site. Catwalk to Closet ships globally, so this is something all of our readers can enjoy. There’s nothing better than a little holiday glamour for less.
Stay tuned as we’ll continue to chronicle holiday fashions this week, and special deals for Recessionistas everywhere!
