Check Mate

My last purchase of 2010 was completely unplanned: a $1,890 Carolina Herrera frock on Gilt this morning for only $119.

A sartorial item that retails for more than my rent, purchased at a price lower than my weekly grocery budget ... I can finally check that one off my 2010 wish list. Phew!

Now I just need a fabulous soiree for its debut.

  21. Booyah! Those are the best buys *ever,* when you really get that awesome piece for a rock bottom price. I have a few pieces like that which make me a little giddy when I wear them, haha.
