The Outnet 2nd Birthday Sale!

Before I say anything else, I have to give all of you a HUGE thank you!! Yesterday I found out I won a ticket to The Outnet's $2 Birthday Sale as one of the top 200 referrers, so the only reason I am even writing this post is because my wonderful readers signed up for the sale through my link. So thank you, thank you, thank you!!

This morning was the huge Outnet 2nd birthday sale that I first told you guys about here. I set two separate alarms to remind me when the sale was about to begin, but of course I was sitting at the computer obsessively refreshing my inbox long before either went off. When the email arrived, I immediately started having a mini-panic-attack, and any strategy I had formed in my head went out the window! I went first for the bags, but the Fendi and Antik Batik ones I had my eye on were already sold out. So I moved onto the dresses, saw the one pictured above in size 2 and went for it! My hands were shaking so much I could barely type in my credit card number, but the transaction went through and I am now the proud owner of a $2,000 Miu Miu dress for just $2 - free shipping and everything!

I'm a bit addicted to the thrill of the find, so I've been following what other people won through Twitter. Kimberly of Third Avenue Princess scored a red Moschino clutch, Becki of Shopping is my Cardio bought a $4,500 Valentino jacket, and Isabel of Walk of Fashion got a Donna Karen crepe vest - all for just $2!

If you won a ticket to the $2/£2 sale I'd love to hear what you scored! And if you didn't win a ticket, The Outnet is offering a 20% off coupon code for you all - check your emails!

Amazing! Thank you for showing us what you got, it is a beautiful dress you will always treasure.

I scored a Lela Rose blouse last year, but, alas, did not get a ticket this year.

I'm so happy for you... congrats! :)

Lovely dress! I'm looking for the perfect casual summer dress but it's hard. Most dresses are like tents, haha! Congratulations to your new dress. I envy you so much! =D

that's a cute dress. I didn't even see it. that's one bummer about the sale, you can't really peek around the items. I also first went for the purses, but all the good ones were sold out and I didn't want a clutch. so instead I snagged a bottega veneta silk colorblock dress. woo-hoo.

Closet Fashionista said...

LOVE that dress!! Such a good choice! I'm going to do a post about my experience tomorrow...haha...I may have been worse than you ;)

I have to say... I hate you a little bit. I so wanted to be one of the people able to shop this sale. The only way I'll forgive you is if you buy tons and tons!

That dress is awesome! I missed out last year and this year, sadly. But I LOVE (and am a little obsessed with) reading about what other people scored. I'm a deal voyeur, I guess!
