One thing I have lusted after in my shopping dreams has been Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B line of clothing, shoes and handbags. When it first hit the sales racks, I thought ho-hum, another celebrity inspired line. Truly, I didn’t expect anything original or of quality. Then, I saw some of the clothing at a local beach boutique and changed my mind. The clothing was well made, and in excellent fabric choices. The quality was definitely there. Alas, the price was not right, probably due to that very quality. Later, one of my best friends bought one of the L.A.M.B handbags, and again, I was amazed. It was very good looking, and not cheaply made. She bought it at Saks for retail, which again was out of my range of consideration. So good news today Recessionistas, shopping club Ideeli is putting L.A.M.B shoes on sale at a discount. There are only two other places I have seen L.A.M.B sold at a discount and those are Loehmann’s and Nordie’s Rack. So click here to shop Ideeli from the convenience of your PC, and see what they have on sale today. In case you’re wondering, L.A.M.B., stands for Love. Angel. Music. Baby. This was also the name of Gwen’s first album. Who knew? Today (5/28), L.A.M.B watches join the sale, and they also look great. Here’s a picture of one.
Another cool thing that is going on over at Ideeli is a contest this week. As OOoOO says, “Freebies in the Recession” we like! So here is the deal, all you need to win is some style savvy and the ability to Twitter.
