This Meshes With My Taste…How About Yours?

I confess it. I have a thing for mesh bags. I also have a thing for the mildly surreal and op-art-ish. Combine these three things, and just look what you get:

It’s the Letter mesh clutch by Felix Ray and I’m besotted. It comes in your choice of gold (shown) or black, and it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s. In fact, a whole lot of purses are on sale at Bloomies right now because they’re having their semi-annual purse sale. Dozens of designer purses are on sale at 30% – 50% off their regular prices. That’s how it is that this delightful mesh clutch is available for just $91.00 (regularly $130.00)!

Whether your taste runs more to Felix Ray or Prada, there’s a glorious new purse waiting just for you at a bargain price. Hurry up and take your least maxed out credit card of the post-holiday season and make your spring a bit more elegant.

Get the Message!

Sure a pretty little clutch that holds just your lipstick, ID, and emergency cab fare is perfect when you’re going to a party, but what about when your life requires that you have more on you? After all, there are times when you need to carry books, important papers, or even your laptop with you. Those won’t fit into a tiny clutch.

But just because you need to haul a lot of gear doesn’t mean you have to give up carrying a superfantastic accessory!

BCBGMAXAZRIA Messanger Bag BCBGMAXAZRIA created this gorgeous and practical messenger bag out of soft lambskin in a delicious congac color. It’s up to you whether you carry it by the wrapped handles or drape it across your body with the detachable 60″ strap. Inside, there are a zip, a patch, and a cellphone pocket.

Best of all, it’s on a great sale at Bluefly. The retail value is $348.00. Bluefly usually carries it for $208.00, which is a great deal. But right now you can get it for just $176.80! That’s 49% off the original price!

Now that’s a message I can get behind.

de Lucca at This!

A really good leather purse is one of the best investments a girl can make in order to live the life superfantastic. Of course, to make it truly superfantastic and leave a bit of cash for getting a great lunch in a fabulous little bistro nobody knows anything about, one must seek out the best possible deal on said really good leather purse.

That’s where our friends at Shop Bluefly! come into play. Not only do they carry designer goods at a discount, they also hold sales on those already excellent prices.

For instance, here’s just such a purse as I was trying to describe in the first paragraph:

de Lucca Shoulder Bag Look at that lickable leather in a beautiful and versatile caramel color. Take in the slouchy yet sophisticated air. Delight in the curved pocket detail. Oh, and that pocket? Has a magnetic closing making it practical as well as charming.

In addition to that pocket, there’s a zip pocket on the back, a zip closure at top to the main stuff-holding area, an interior zip pocket, an interior patch pocket, and a pocket for your cell phone. The 36″ strap has an 18″ drop for the perfect shoulder bag attitude, too. All in all, Monserat de Lucca has provided us with the perfect intersection of practicality and style.

What would you pay for this beauty of a bag? Well, originally you would have paid something in the neighborhood of $455.00. At that point, you might not need a purse, having so little money left. Despair not. Bluefly has been carrying it for just $273.00, which is a fabulous deal, indeed. But right now, Bluefly has it on one of those sales I was mentioning for a mere $259.99! That’s 43% off the original price!

Now that’s a delectable deal.

Laptop of Luxury

Ah, that technical marvel the laptop! It’s made all our lives a bit more productive, a bit more connected, a bit more able to do our jobs while sipping delicious caffeinated beverages at the coffee houses of our choice.

Doesn’t your laptop deserve some pampering?

Una Laptop Tote Witness the glory that is the Una laptop tote. Made of sturdy quilted nylon with matching leather trim in your choice of red or black, it’s designed to hold your portable internet accessor in style and comfort. It fits most standard laptops and includes an ‘air pocket pillow’ to cushion your computer against tiny bumps and bruises along the way.

Doesn’t your computer deserve the best?

But while we’re taking care of your electronics, we’re not forgetting your wallet or your bank account, oh no. We care about your economic health here at the Basement of the Bargains.

The original price on this elegant baby was $250.00, but right now you can get it from Neiman Marcus for a mere $88.00! And to sweeten the pot, I’d like to point out that today (June 8, 2009) is the last day to get free shipping at any price point by using the code: NMSHIP at checkout.

I know what I’m getting my laptop for its birthday this year.
