Okay, so sometimes you’re having a bad day, and you just really want to buy something. Nine times out of 10, my impulse can be sated with a shirt at H&M or a new pair of tights from American Apparel. But occasionally, I really want to buy something classy, nice and designer. And that’s when I go to the Creatures of Comfort website. They carry tons of my favorite designers — like Isabel Marant, Rachel Comey and Karen Walker – along with their own house line. Sadly, much of their stuff is astronomically out of my price range, but I have managed to find nine awesome pieces, from keychains to trousers, that one could actually purchase from their fantastic collection, for under $100 bucks.

There are Zucca thigh-high boots and APC blazers for over 70% off at yummy LA boutique Creatures of Comfort, Barney’s has Alexander Wang and Acne dresses for under $200, and don’t even get me started on the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania on the cheap right now at La Garconne. BUT! Before you rush off and kill a few buying the stuff you wanted earlier in the season but can only afford now, heed our advice. Because as a person who has a closet filled with tight, avant-garde pants that neither fit or even look remotely flattering off the computer screen, I’ve learned a few lessons and I feel the need to share so you don’t make any mistakes you regret.
