Tip 1: Try Before You Buy
There are tons of fashion sites offering great deals on designer clothes. But guesing your size can make online deal shopping tricky and some sites only give site credits on returns.
Before you look for deals take a trip to your favorite department stores and try on clothes by designers you like. Be sure to write down the sizes and styles that work for you. This way, when they are featured on a deal site you don't have to guess whether or not it will fit. The same thing goes for shoes, try them in the store and find an online deal for a fraction of the cost!
Here are some of the great deals you can sore online right now!

NYLA Webebe Boots $75 ideeli.com

French Connection Zola Dress $115 Hautelook.com
With so many deals for "spas" you really have to research them before you purchase the deal. I recently redeemed a deal purchased on bloomspot.com for a shellac manicure, spa pedicure and glass of wine for $30 and Veda Spa in NYC. This place was the furthest thing from a spa, I actually needed a trip to the spa afterward to relax!
Veda Spa is your typical loud nail salon with poor ventilation and even with an appointment, I still had to wait for 30mins. My manicure was awful, she got the shellac on my cuticles and it chipped off with in a few days. To add insult to injury, my "free glass of wine" was served in a styrofoam cup! Who does that? Wine taste awful when it's not in a wine glass ewwww!
To avoid a dreadful experience like mine, check out the website and read reviews before purchasing a deal. No matter how steep the discount or how good of a deal it may seem to be, there is nothing worse ending up in a fake spa hoping to get good service and relax.
Follow these tips and you will be sure to have success shopping for deals online. Happy Shopping!
