According to Mr. Lagerfeld, wearing last season’s number is what gets you the nod in fashion circles, or at least his approval (which, in my opinion, would more than suffice). I know he is probably saying this so that those of us who can’t afford the designer number on its debut still feel relevant when our wallets endure the stretch upon the number’s appearance the second time around.

I’m all for this ‘last season is the new it season’ approach to fashion, which is why I love – an online shopping destination where you can find ‘a range of end-of-season clothing and accessories from the world’s most prestigious designers’ at great prices! Alexander McQueen, Chloe, Costume National, Maison Martin Margiela, Marc Jacobs and Prada, to name a few are among the virtual racks!

Also, look out for the first and exclusive dog collection by Dean and Dan of DSquared, featured on the site – too cute!
