Luxury Flash Sale Favorites

 
I am always looking for a good deal when it comes to luxury goods especially for home decor.
 
Since we bought our home last November I am constantly hunting for occasional furniture, accent pieces and great vintage finds. I have found that my favorite sources for these items are member only luxury goods flash sales. I have found some amazing things for such affordable prices.
 
 
I would have to say the site I frequent and purchase from the most is
One Kings Lane . I literally find something new that I want daily! They carry a wide range of designers and styles that would fit whatever your decor style may be.
 
 I have found chic pillows, throw blankets, coffee table books and my favorite bench from One Kings Lane. One of my favorite things to style in the house are my shelves and you can find the most unique and fun knick knacks on these sites.
 
Here are a few of my favorites on One Kings Lane right now...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is my personal favorite that we have in our bedroom!
Tufted Headboard
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
  
 
 
 I am picturing 2 of these guys on my mantle
 
 
Another favorite is Joss & Main where I have recently been eyeing some GORG pieces...they are really stepping it up!
 
 Here are some of my current finds...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Gilt is a site I visit daily typically for deals on designer apparel and jewelry but more often than not I make my way over to Gilt Home. When I first started visiting the home collection I thought it was a bit too modern for my taste but recently I have found some great things like this cashmere blanket for $165 originally $429
 
 


I nearly choked on my gum when this 1930's Goyard Wardrobe Trunk showed up this week...it's currently on sale for $9,599 from $13,077. I believe this is a  bit out of my price range...bummer.
 
 

 
 
It really looks like I'm into orange, doesn't it? I don't have any in my home but I think it's time it become incorporated in someway!
 
 A few more flash sale sites that are newer for me are:
 
My Habit (founded by Amazon)

MAJOR Designer Crush: Suzanna Dai

As I skimmed the pages of GILT this morning I was pleasantly struck by the sight of beautifully crafted jewels designed by Suzanna Dai. I was not familiar with the line so I did some investigating to see what I could find.

 I quickly discovered that Suzie Gallehugh is the genius behind the Suzanna Dai collection.

Her love of new and old, travel, nostalgia and culture shines in each piece she designs. Every detail is intricate and unique which is what stood out the most to me. I am trying to decide which piece to start my collection with....give me your vote after feasting your eyes on these beauties!

NYFW: J. Crew Spring 2013

 
I sat speechless as I skimmed through photos from the J. Crew Spring 2013 collection presentation that was held at the Lincoln center in NYC on Tuesday.
 
 The colors, patterns and materials were perfection.
J. Crew head womenswear designer, Tom Mora, called it an "Instagram-like palette".
 
 It is the perfect mix of girly and edgy. Stripes mixed with bold, floral and vibrant prints mixed with bits of neon.
 
Just as I was beginning to pull out my sweaters and booties I am hit with this colorful assortment of floral, neon and embellished goodness...my head is spinning!
 
Here are a few of the most noteworthy...

Never Forget 9.11

9.11
 
Every year on 9.11 an overwhelming feeling of sadness and gratitude comes over me as it does for millions of other people.
 
We all remember where we were, what we were doing and how we felt the moment that we heard and saw the unbelievable images spread across our televisions and computer screens.
 
Whether you know someone who lost their loved ones, whose friend of family member saved a life or we might just have an old photo with the images of those incredible towers in the background....
 
We have all been touched and forever changed in some way by this incredible tragedy...

Celine Me Alone

I've always loved a good play on words and this time is no exception.

After seeing this chic t-shirt all over Pinterest I had to get my hands on it.

After lots of Googling I finally came across the small online shop
NYC PARIS LONDON HK TOKYO LA and ordered myself a grey one that is super soft.

I have found so much inspiration on how to style it from these beauties...
