Designer Fashion at a Discount

Last night I went to a party for a new company owned and operated by a friend of mine called Couture Connection. Through her business she buys designer clothes at wholesale pricing and then re-sells them at a slightly higher price, but only at a fraction of the original cost. Most of what she has is denim and tops, but also sunglasses, belts, and other fun accessories. And with brands like True Religion, Rock & Republic, Miss Me, and Laguna Beach, she's got some really great stuff!

So last night was her launch party to get her business going. All of her merchandise will be sold online (website is up but not totally finished yet - I'll pass that on as soon as it is) but until she really gets her name out there she's doing Trunk Shows at the homes of people that want to host them. It was so much fun! She had racks and racks of designer clothes so all of us girls were sipping champagne while trying on hot stuff.

I fell in love with these darling jeans by Miss Me. It's hard to see in the picture but there are tiny sparkly rhinestones on the crosses of the pockets and the belt loops. SO cute! I'm all about fun pockets on jeans (you gotta make the butt look good... am I right, ladies?). ;)
And I also really like these ones (also with some rhinestones).
BUT, trying to be a good girl during these more difficult financial times, I agreed to do a Trunk Show at my house next month so I can get them at an even further discount. Yippee! I can't wait! I'm going on a trip the first week in May (I'll do another post about that to explain) and I'd love to have these jeans to take with me! Plus, it's a great excuse to have the girls over for a fun night. :)

Oh, and she also served snickerdoodle cookies so I got have my snickerdoodle with champagne. YUM! ;)

I love snickerdoodles! If I ate them as much as I would like, I'd never fit into those cute jeans.
