i’m wearing: h&m blouse, current/elliott python print jeans (i bought mine on hautelook but they are still available here), loft bracelet, ann taylor fringe ring (on sale), h&m clutch and nine west pumps. my nail polish is “all that razz” by color club c/o luckyfabb swag bag.

i snagged these jeans via hautelook for only $79 (originally $200). i was a little nervous to buy a brand i had never tried before but now that they have a better return policy i went for it! and i got lucky…they fit pretty good. do you shop flash sale sites? i’ve found that it takes patience but you can end up with some really great deals.

tips for newbies: when you sign up for flash sale sites, make sure you check out the upcoming sales so you know exactly what shops you don’t want to miss. then…the day of, go RIGHT to that sale as SOON as it starts. if you see something you like…add it to your cart IMMEDIATELY. you should have at least 10-15 minutes to think about it before that item goes back into available stock. and then go back to look at more items. the longer you spend just scrolling though the items…the more likely your size will be sold out. also if you see an item that you absolutely love that is not available due to being in another members cart, just keep hitting refresh and SNAG that item as soon as it is available. like i said…it takes a little bit of work to shop these sales but the good stuff goes fast! there are quite a few of the flash sale sites out there but i mainly shop hautelook and gilt.

    Great buy on those jeans! Have had my eye on print current/elliott jeans in one version or another. Love that last photo highlighting the fringe ring and polish…”model shot”!

    Flash sale site are so dangerous! I use Rue La LA & Ideeli too. My only complain about these site are paying for shipping. Some how, I think they are already make enough $$ that they should have free shopping.

    I haven’t bought anything from Hautelook before, I never remember to check their boutique. I would say I buy mostly from ruelala! Great tips for first time shoppers, it can be overwhelming and you have to make a snap decision. Great outfit, those python jeans look amazing on you!

    Wow, these jeans are absolutely stunning! Seen one or two python print pairs about, but these are definitely my favourite! Great with the neon as well πŸ™‚

    Oo python print now this is a print I can get behind – fabulous outfit. I always think of python as leopard print’s grown up sister πŸ™‚

    Great sales advice, I’ve been caught out on Barneys for taking too long to buy and things go back into circulation for sale so quickly. Bookmarked!

    I had to learn early with Hautelook.com that I needed to look at the sales early because most likely what I love everyone else will probably want and it will go fast!
