What If You Had $40,000 To Spend On Designer Clothes?

I almost regret sharing this news, mostly because I just entered myself, but I love you guys and this is a serious need to know. In celebration of their one millionth order, Net-A-Porter is offering fans the chance to win a $40,000 shopping spree, no purchase necessary. Here’s the link to enter.

Now let’s play a little game, shall we? Say you won. How the hell would you even begin to spend it!?

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.
