Friday Finds: Best of Bluefly Semi-Annual Sale

I've spoken before about the discount-enduced stupor I enter every time I visit Bluefly or browse a clearance rack. I often overlook how flattering the particular piece is on my body, instead focusing on the brand name and that low, low price tag. The inevitable result is buyer's regret, as I end up spending too much money on a piece that doesn't fit well or flatter my body. For this reason, I've banned myself from discount designer stores until I learn some damn self-control.

But that doesn't mean that I can't look, and I certainly couldn't hold back on sharing my favorite sale pieces with you guys. Bluefly is currently holding their semi-annual sale, with additional markdowns on already deeply discounted clothes and accessories. Strangely, I couldn't find any information on the website regarding how long the sale will last (I'm going to assume it's more than a few days for this reason) but with a limited number of each item and size, there's no guarantee everything will still be available in a week or two. Don't take that as an invitation to buy impulsively though... I wouldn't want my bad habits rubbing off!

Yeah, great bargains to be found there for sure. I spent most of Saturday just browsing. I like your picks--contemplating on the Audrey Hepburn frock... Glam Boy will freak out, though. He thinks I have too many LBDs as it is!
