When we checked our e-mails this morning, we were going to look right over the promotions from Saks and Barneys. No use in yearning for something when it's so early in the morning, right? Turns out, we were wrong. Saks Online is running a flash sale called "FashionFix". It ends at midnight on Wednesday, and it promises 50% off designers like Alexander McQueen, Herve Leger, Marc Jacobs, Dior, Alice and Olivia, 7 For All Mankind, and more. Sure, it's a little like Gilt Groupe. But at $365 for a pair of croc-embossed calfskin Dior platforms, who really cares? [Racked Inbox]
