In mid December I was contacted by HauteLook to do  a review of their website. As soon as I opened the email I sprung out of my chair as I had recently stumbled across their web-store and I was already drooling over what I found online!

HauteLook  is a premier members-only site that offers private, limited-time sale events on the world's best brands. Each day, members receive an email invitation to the newest, most exclusive sale events on the best merchandise for men, women, kids, home and beauty - at prices up to 75% off retail.

You can pick up fantastic designer pieces at a fraction of the price.  Each sale has a time limit, sale events starting Monday – Thursday will begin at 8AM Pacific and run for 48 hours. Events starting Friday or Saturday will run until Monday morning.

So armed with $200 credit thanks to the amazing staff at HauteLook I went shopping! There were so many choices, that many I was honestly spoilt for choice but though logically and remembered I was in dying need of a great handbag and some new flat shoes.

ALLIBELLE Swingset Satchel - Original Retail Price $495.00  Sale Price $165.00
Calvin Klein Parkley Flat - Original Retail Price $119.00  Sale Price $38.00
So first on my list was a fantastic every day, strong and beautiful bag. I'm so sick of purchasing cheap pleather bags that never last more than a few months. As soon as I saw this Satchel bag I clicked add to cart and instantly wanted to cuddle it!

The soft leather, large size and brilliant variety of features make this handbag my dream bag. It's large enough to carry all I need without being too heavy or weighing down my shoulders and this is a must for me.

The leather is soft and dreamy. The silver accents and locks pop out so well on this style. Silver and black leather are always the perfect match in my mind. The inside is full of small compartments for phones, makeup, keys etc. But my favorite features has to be the two outside pockets with the very funky locks! These are perfect for my iPhone and Sunglasses.

This is a bag that will never date and will never fall to pieces like any of the others in my collection. I'm over the moon to have this on me each and every day. Its one of those pieces that on sale or not is worth it's weight in gold.

The Swingset Satchel also comes with it's very own carry bag upon arrival!

Then I went in search of some every day work flats focusing more on a closed toe for the cooler months as I have lots of summer shoes filling my wardrobe. When I found the Calvin Klein Parkley Flat I knew I'd found the perfect pair.

Made of suede and leather these shoes are both lush and adorable. The suede is baby soft and the leather and silver accents make these shoes a classic and easily style-able pair of shoes. Sleek and sophisticated and very must the classic style that CK is famous for.

So hows the fit? Well these having the pointed toe do nip in a little but the length is perfect for my foot which is an Australian 10. I ordered the US10 and they are a perfect fit. I'm use to a round tow when it comes to flats but I'm actually loving this style a lot. The buckle detail is my favorite part! It's almost like I purchased the bag and the shoes to got together when it honestly was just a coincidence.

Although the sale I purchased these items is over you can find heaps of amazing deals online now! Shipping was only $22.00 for these and I got them in just under two weeks! Overall the experience of shopping at HauteLook was fantastic and I'm back on every second day now looking to nab a bargain.

  1. Hello from Texas! I came upon your site while searching for a swing style dress for my wedding in April. I am really interested in the dress you are wearing on your site. It's the one with the Leopard print top and black skirt combo. I would really love to purchase this for my honeymoon. Thank you. By the way, thank you for you site. I'm a voluptuous sized woman myself and appreciate that someone is noticing all of us. Thank you again and hope to hear from you soon.
