I love a good sale. Most of my wardrobe has been purchased either on clearance or on sale, and its rare that I buy something full price. Why? Well, as a student its difficult to separate yourself from the working crowd, but when something is $80, and you need to eat and live for the week, you learn to be cash savvy.
That’s what I love about online shopping. There are now so many stores that cater to the savvy shopper, with discounts galore if you know where to look.
When the team at HauteLook contacted me late last year, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I took a look around their website and noticed some excellent deals, and while the site is based in the United States, the first thing I noticed was Australian shipping. With that big tick in place, I took the opportunity to try their website and share my experience on Closet Confessions.
The first thing I noticed about HauteLook was their clean and easy to use website. Everything is categorised and almost every few days a new sale comes on offer. Another thing? The things I wanted were always sold out! So it pays to be quick and know when a new sale starts. The HauteLook emails gave me an idea of what was coming up, and I planned a few days in advance that I was going to spoil myself with a new wardrobe purchase….of shoes, naturally.
But even then, it was hard choose, as the Nordstrom-owned website holds women’s, men’s, children’s and even home decor….just to name a few selections!
Selecting shoes from the Jessica Simpson range, I scored myself 2 pairs of heels; the first a gorgeous leopard print pony hair pump with gorgeous patent black detail on the heel and trimmings and the second a nautical inspired wedge with rope detail and white patent details. Including shipping, both pairs just came over $100.00! Yes, two pairs of heels and international shipping for under $120 dollars and delivered to my door.
Oh, the shoes? They fit like a dream! The soles are soft and comfortable and I cannot wait to take the wedges out for their first date. The leopard heels make me feel fabulous and I cannot wait to share them in an outfit post with you soon!
I ordered my heels prior to Christmas and found the shipping over Christmas took a fairly long time. It took around 3 weeks for them to arrive, but with the Christmas and New Year I had expected the shipping to take longer than usual. Normal shipping should take no longer than 14 working days to arrive in Australia.
After looking at some further deals, Australian residents will find some items are restricted to be sent to our shores, such as some hair products, cosmetics and hair extensions due to customs.
My experience using HauteLook was fantastic and I highly suggest the site for anyone looking for different brands, unique items or even gifts for friends at prices. I will certainly be using HauteLook in the near future and love receiving their emails! Join here and you could help me earn points on my account!
