Ever heard of Saks Fashion Fix or Off 5th?? As the incredibly fashionable and wise Notorious B.I.G. once sang, "If you don't know, now you know".
The key to your new wardrobe can be found at http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/fashionfix/home.jsp
Every day at noon EST, a new online boutique at up to 70-90% off will open for only 24 hours. Depending on the boutique, you can get anything from Guiseppe Zanotti strappy heels to an Elizabeth and James dress at unbelievable prices. You have to be quick, though, because the really great stuff sells out fast.

Tip: If you like something, add it to your cart immediately! Saks.com will save the item for you for 10 minutes while you continue to browse and then you can decide if you actually want it later. Slow and steady definitely does NOT win this race.
There's also an extensive "shop anytime" section which is like a Saks sale on crack. The best part? You don't have to rummage through lipstick-stained tank tops and awkwardly sized shorts on the sale rack to find the good stuff.
On top of your already-amazing savings, you can also apply a promo code at checkout. I highly recommend that you go ASAP to sign yourself up for the Saks newsletter. When you do, they'll email you a 10% off code good for your entire order! If you end up using the code and needing another one, make a new gmail account and sign yourself up again. It's really that simple.
Now, an entirely different demon on my shopping map is called Off 5th, the almost-as-pretty-but-not-quite outlet stepsister of Saks. There are 64 of these babies in the US, and I highly recommend that you find the one closest to you ASAP.
A store like this is perfect for timeless wardrobe staples like Sam Edelman boots, nude Stuart Weitzman pumps and J. Brands. On top of the in-store discounts, there are often coupons for 30% off a single item, so a nice pair of Hudsons will end up being around $50. Off 5th also has an extensive sunglass section, and I've never struggled to find a nice pair of designer aviators for no more than $40.
