Today I went to heaven...and by heaven I mean Paramus, New Jersey to the Saks OFF 5th Store. When I got the invite to experience the new saksoff5th.com website and visit the store...I jumped at the opportunity. Even though it meant a 6:30 a.m. wakeup call. It was well worth it. So today I boarded a bus with other fashion enthusiast and tastemakers and we were whisked over the George Washington Bridge and into New Jersey (where the magic outlets happen).
As of Monday September 30th, saksoff5th.com has been in full swing offering designer duds (think Rebecca Minkoff, Manolo Blahnik, Zac Posen, Nicholas Kirkwood), for up to 55% off YEAR ROUND!!! The site itself is a breeze to use with new arrivals added daily and FashionFix Flash Sales featuring a notable designer every 48 hours. Now that's fast designer fashion!
I suggest you take FULL advantage of the Saks OFF 5th More! Program. It's a free membership...yes FREE, in which you can get additional savings (on top of the already deeply discounted prices) in store and online. WOOT WOOT. I am already trying to work out how in the heck I can get back to New Jersey! At times like these I wish I had a car but at least I can still pick up these fabulous Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee boots I've been eyeing for 40% off online.
We were treated to a lovely breakfast and then given the go ahead to run wild and free in the Saks OFF 5th store. If the website gives you a clean, modern, easy to navigate feel than you will love the actual store. Of course I made a bee-line straight for the shoes.
You will die. I died a little and then came back to life when I tried on THEE "Woman's Right to Shoes" Manolo Blahnik's that Carrie Bradshaw wore and then lost (at a party because there were no shoes allowed) and then had her friend rebuy for her. It was my first time trying on Manolo's and they looked damned good and on sale too. I cannot deal.
Thus...my new favorite website for designer deals.... saksoff5th.com.
