Ooh la la for Rue La La

Kay Unger dressYou know how sometimes you see a woman who just always seems to dress impeccably - designer labels, or just the most current fashion, or really innovative yet classic style. There was a lovely lady, Kim, who used to work with me.  Then she left and we didn’t see each other for a while – until she arrived back on the island this week.  And as usual when we met up for lunch, she looked AMAZING.

I knew that she wasn’t a top earner, but she always looked like she had just dropped out of a fashion magazine or off a runway, and at lunch I got the chance to speak to her more about her style and where she buys her clothes.  I’ve been taking much more of an interest in fashion since I started sewing.

Well as a novice sewer, I can’t yet achieve everything I’d like to in sewing.  Not by a long way.  So I still shop for clothes. And I wanted to know her secret.   She was happy to share and I am so glad that I asked.  It turns out she buys most of the outfits I admired online.  I know she likes her designer labels and I wanted to know how she affords it.  She told me about Rue La La.

I came home and took a  look at their site – and I LOVE it.  Here’s what they say about themselves:

Rue La La is… an exclusive, invitation-only online destination where Members discover premier-brand, private sale Boutiques, each open for just a brief window of time. Our focus is a well-edited collection of sought-after offerings from the best brand names in the world – combined with helpful service. Membership is free. The discovery of something unexpected, something that imbues the day-to-day with a little magic – these are the moments we long for. And you’ll find them here.

There are a lot of things she told me, that really sold me on them.

  • Everything is sold at a massive discount – typically at least 50-60% off, and up to 80% of the retail price.  That means BIG savings on really top quality clothing
  • There is a ‘Today’s Fashion Fix’. A limited special offer with a huge discount that runs for today only
  • They sell clothing, undies, shoes, accessories and some homeware – all from top brands and designers
  • Their shipping is really cheap – $9.95 for the first item and then anything else you order for the next 30 days is free shipping
  • There is a 30 day return policy – no questions asked

It says members only, but it is simple to apply.  Enter an email address and password and you are ready to browse the goodies on sale.

I am so excited to have found it, that I wanted to share it with you all.  Living here on a small island, the clothing options are really limited unless you want a T-shirt with Cayman Islands printed on it – so I can see my friends and I using this site a lot.  Great for smart work wear and lovely party dresses.

I’ve browsing through the CASS Luxury Shapewear this evening – at 50-70% off.  Just what I need at my age to smooth those lumps and bumps.  And some Kay Unger dresses I could never otherwise afford.

Do pop  over and take a look.
