    what an exciting giveaway!! Being in Canada, I love that Hautelook makes it so easy for us to order by adding the customs/duty/taxes for me. Saves any big surprises when the mailman delivers! Best buy through them were some Alpha Industry jackets I got for my kids. they were adorable and a huge hit with my little Recessionista's who love when mommy scores a bargain as much as mommy does.

    I love HauteLook because of the amazing deals & I've only shopped there once and I got the Current/Elliott – The Boyfriend Short for just $50, they're normally like $200.

    I love Hautelook! I scored one of my favorite rings there, an Amrita Singh ring that I wear almost every day – and it was less than $30!
