--By Jules Newmark

As Rebecca Bloomwood would tell you - there are some things that are worth breaking out that golden credit card from a 4 inch thick block of ice. Although I'm not there to concur with Bloomwood in Confessions of a Shopaholic (all SJ readers' newest film crush), I certainly would not be opposed to doing the same thing. And bravo to that woman for making the effort to stop the freight train of designer shopping! After reason #1 for the ice pick coming out, that is to buy that doggie in the window, there is an exclusive website that has the best deals on designer you'll ever see!

Now Gilt Groupe, said fabu website, offers luxury brands at up to 70% off and sale items are hand selected from each designer to keep madness to a minimum. Gilt Groupe was founded only in 2007 but is already a smashing hit, especially for those fashionistas that just can't pass a style up for a deal! Now for the first time, InStyle Magazine is pairing up with the Groupe to create better crossover and lend an editorial hand... and eye, to the mix of this fantastic brand. This is one of the first steps to save the fashion magazine and the fashion industry all in one - let's hope it takes off so we can keep enjoying "Gilty" pleasures.
