Bangin' Bargains: The Outnet Birthday Sale



  Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
So...as you all know The OUTNET's $2 birthday sale was yesterday and I was one of the lucky few who got a ticket! SCORE!  Anyway, I was at work so I had to warn my boss that between 11 and 12 I may have to stop working for a few minutes to get a designer item for $2, luckily he was totally fine with that, ha ha. So starting at around 10:50 am I began to panic in preparation.  At around 11:15 I got my email from The OUTNET saying the sale had started so I SHOT straight to the site. My plan was to narrow down the results by size so for shoes I did 8 and 8.5 and then for clothes I did a range of size 2-8 (because I am so randomly sized). THEN I viewed it all on one page and scrolled down, as I saw items I liked I opened them in new tabs...I did this pretty quickly so I am sure I probably missed some other amazing pieces.

After I got to the bottom of the page I had a few items that i was choosing between, a Matthew Williamson dress, a Valentino jacket and a few other things I'm forgetting. In the end I decided on the Valentino jacket because I need another blazer.  So I quickly added it to my cart and checked out like lightening! Good thing I already had my credit card information in there or I may have lost out on it. I just hope it fits because my shoulders make sizing weird, they make me need a larger size and everything else is smaller...annoying.  So yea, if it doesn't fit I may have to sell it *tears*

This whole process from beginning to end took about 5 minutes, so it really is the sale of a lifetime.  My heart was pounding SO fast during the whole process and it probably took me about 20 minutes to get back to breathing normally...my boss was probably laughing at me.

So in the end I got a $6,000 jacket for $2!!! AMAZING! And about an hour and a half after I made my order I got an email from them saying it was ready to be shipped...how awesome is that for customer service.  So yea, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Outnet, they are amazing ;)

And here it is:
Vanilla silk-faille jacket with gold designer-embossed double-breasted button embellishment. Valentino jacket has a narrow flap collar at high neck, long sleeves with four decorative buttons at cuffs, a fabric buckle-fastening belt, flap pockets at hips, flap pocket detail at the chest, concealed press-studs through the front to fasten and is fully lined. 100% silk; lining: 100% polyester. Dry clean.
Did you get a coveted ticket to the sale? If so what did you get!!?
