Update on Cocosa - Designer Fashion at a snip for the Recessionista!

Investment dressing is key in a recession and frugal fashionistas will be checking out Cocosa for designer fashion bargains. Lets face it girls we don’t all want to swap our Prada for Primark when pinching the pennies, and when a real investment piece is worked out on a cost per wear basis, it makes sense to purchase an item that will still be wearable in 5 or 10 years time. Step in Cocosa!
My invitation code dropped into my inbox this afternoon from the lovely and very helpful Natalie and I finally got to enter the site!
Upon opening you do that Lux “net-a-porter” feel, no quickly thrown together website here girls.
The site tells you about up and coming designer sales which last for 48 hours, but of course items could sell out before the sale ends and to be sure of getting your size, you will need to get in early.
You also get to see what is up and coming and can click on any designers that you are interested in to ensure you get an email reminder of when they start.
Currently on sale is Ossie Clark with Maxi dresses at £328 from £850 and the gorgeous Aramis blouse, originally £300 down to £129.
Other sales for February include Issa (also sold at www.matchesfashion.com) and Velvet by Graham & Spencer (www.net-a-porter.com).
Just by entering the site and the fact it is by invitation only, really makes you feel as if you are part of something special, so if you are interested in joining this exclusive shopping “club” then please email me for the invitation code which has been especially set up for readers of this Blog. Don’t forget to let me know what you have bought and what the saving was, as on an earlier post, I asked you all to keep a running total of savings made by following my suggestions.

Whittington blouse reduced from £250 - £109 - makes for high powered work wear with suits or pencil skirts or evenings out with skinny jeans and heels. Ruffles are still very much key for this season.

Gorgeous Aramis blouse, comes in 3 colours, great for evening wear or dress down with flared jeans and flip flops for summer.
