a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

Just be aware . . .

and do your research . . . . I love all the online shopping sites - One Kings Lane, Gilt, Zulilly, Rue La La, Joss & Main, HauteLook, etc BUT they are not always the best deals!!! 

I learned this last Christmas when I found a set of gold cutlery that I wanted to buy my mum.  It was a 5-piece place setting and I wanted to buy 4 sets . . . . they were priced on one of these sites (I honestly can't remember which one) at $89.99 a set.  I got busy and forgot to order them right away and then when I checked back that night they were sold out!!! I was so bummed because it was a great price compared to others I had seen before.  So I jumped on the site and found out the brand name of them so that I could see if I could get them anywhere else . . . . and low and behold I found them on the actual manufacturers website for $29.99 a set!!!! The exact same set and they were not on sale, that was the actual price!!!! 

And then this morning I saw these chairs on Gilt for $199 for a set of 2 . . . .

 but I knew I had seen the exact same ones before so I checked and LOOK the exact chairs (same photo even) for $115.99 for a set of 2!!!! 

Another example: these lamps on Gilt for $169 each but on Overstock it is $138.99 (exact one!!!) 

So look at these sites for ideas and some good deals BUT always do your homework before buying.  Not only are the prices usually higher but the shipping is usually higher and you normally have to wait a while before getting them.
