Labellush.com is a great bargain shopping site to keep an eye on. With over 40 designer brands to choose from, you can bet on getting a slam dunk deal. Their slogan is: “Designer labels. Discount prices.” Supporting the slogan, I found a few things in my size that were more than 50% off! Labellush.com does this by having their buyers work diligently,scouting the country to get the best designer items from department stores and boutiques.
Elie Tahari Faux-Wrap Dress

The only downfall for the seasonal snobs is that the products are usually previous season items or overstocked merchandise. But, hey, a nice black dress is great for any season. Point being, I would constantly check the site for updated inventory and grab something that you may have loved, but didn’t want to purchase at full price. After all, sometimes love for fashion items stops at a certain price-- everyone’s got their limit! Most of the items go out of stock quickly and only come in one or two sizes. The site is very user-friendly and has large selection-- everything from Gucci Wedges to a Miu Miu black ruched dress. I found three spectacular items that blew my mind when I saw how well priced and wearable they were for the current season.
Elie Tahari gets mysterious with the 100% silk Black Beaded Faux-Wrap Dress. The dress has a v-neckline that resembles a wrap dress, and the bottom half is hammered silk. The texture change gives the dress a nice contrast. This dress comes with a beaded tie at the waist that goes well, but can also be replaced with a red silk tie to liven it up for the holidays. If you are a size 10, you may want to invest in this dress because it will give you a return.
7 For All Mankind Tahoe Jeans
$119.99 (was $260-- save 54%!)

Continuing with charming silk, I adore the Nanette Lepore Black Silk Love Triangle Top. The off-one-shoulder top is very sexy and holds a lot of attention. This top would look wonderful with a tight pair of jeans or leggings. It really accentuates the beauty of women’s neck and shoulders. All you need is a nice chunky cuff on one wrist and a rockin’ blinged out clutch, and you will be all set for the current season.
Every fall I just want to bring out the high-waisted denim. Don’t ask me why, it just works! It makes you look taller and slimmer-- hello!-- are you seriously going to question that? Seven for All Mankind’s High Waisted Tahoe Jeans usually run for $260, but if you are a size 25 you can get a pair for $119.99!
