For any woman who is perpetually searching for the best deals on bags and shoes (designer or otherwise) the internet is a virtual heaven with hundreds of E-tailers available with just one mouse click. The question is, where to start? You want the best deal, but a Google search pulls of tens of thousands of results. Here’s a quick guide to some of the top e-tailers based on the experiences of this shoe and bag addict!
Become a fashion mule! Or so says Zappos.com. From Via Spiga heels at under $200.00 to the vast selection of the cutest Steve Madden boots, Zappo’s has a fantastic inventory of full and half sizes and the handbags to match. Zappos offers some of the newest, coolest bag styles, many for only $50.00 like the Keen Betty Bag. And once you find a fantastic deal on the shoes and bag, Zappos also sells clothing, watches, and eyewear.

A newcomer to the web, Bluefly sells designer brands at up to 40% off. If you are looking for deals on Prada, Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, or Christian Dior, look no further. Try the super sexy snake print Charles David boot or the Marc by Marc Jacobs “Lovely Aline” satchel. With a phenomenal inventory of designers at non-designer prices, you’ll be addicted to Bluefly in no time. Add it to your favorites girls, because you’ll be back!
Do you have all the patience in the world when it comes to finding the perfect pair of shoes or stunning new bag? Then Ebay is one of the best places to find any designer, color, size, or pattern you’re looking for. The only requirement is learning how to work an online auction. If you have the time to watch an item and bid smart, then Ebay is a great option for you. Just ask the $400.00 Via Spiga pumps I paid only $40 for! Just be careful when using Ebay and check the seller’s feedback ratings. Avoid scam artists by shopping only with those who have positive, detailed feedback such as GothamCityOnline, my favorite EBay retailer.
SmartBargains.com is a lesser known site that shows up farther down the Google laundry list but they offer quite a selection at some pretty fantastic savings like the always stylish Michael Kors Black Patent Clutch for only $99.99. Another little known site caught my eye while sifting through the Google sponsored links in the side bar of my search- Designer Shoes Web Store not only offers free shipping, but also free return shipping. Talk about risk free buying! Lacoste, Hugo Boss, and Elie Tahari are some of the designer brands this website sports. Might be worth a try…
Now, I know that most women are like me. We LOVE the feel of a new purse hanging off our arm and the looks we get from the girls passing by on the street who only wish they had that bag. But instead of blowing your rent check on just one bag, imagine changing bags every week! Well, you can. On Bag, Borrow, or Steal you can “rent” the latest Chanel or a stunning new Fendi. Sport a Louis Vuitton or Prada, just like the girls on Sex and the City.
