More to save us from ourselves than from the stun guns and/or shivs of deranged Black Friday shoppers, our moms always remind us we’d save more money not buying anything at all.
Normally we’d heed the advice of someone who does her taxes without the aid of a calculator or pencil, but all bets, informal agreements and pinky promises are thoroughly off when Net-a-Porter’s seasonal sale rolls around. Because where else, pray tell, can you get J Brands for a song? Or the slinky Roland Mouret gown Karlie Kloss wore to last week’s Museum Gala?
We’re not advocating you slap down $1,300 for a pink polka-dotted Miu Miu coat just so you can
body-roll provocatively on a dock somewhere reenact that campaign video, but we are dropping the most discreet of hints that there are possibly some designer items to be had for the price of deep-fried potato wedges smothered in an avalanche of truffle shavings and gold flakes. If you catch our drift, start your search with a clutch that knows Destiny’s Child lyrics, a skirt that’s cavorted with Japanese motorcycle gangs and some more deliciously discounted duds.
Mother does know best, but we’re pretty sure she’ll lighten up about your spending when you present her with these.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
