One downside to living on the West Coast—the need to get up in the middle of the night to partake in The Outnet's best sales, which generally start at 10am UK time. Today, for instance, the online sale destination held what they were calling "the most exclusive fashion sale of the century", which included 60% off past-season Balmain. Naturally, everything was gone by the time we checked the site at 7:30am PCT, but we did manage to click through to one item via The Outnet's Twitter feed—a studded miniskirt whose sale price was roughly $3,857. Glad we stayed in bed, then. [The Outnet]
