Time for 6pm!

Time for 6pm!

Style : After a particularly intense run last night , I realized it had been embarrassingly long since I'd bought new running shoes. After all, I'd much rather buy real shoes- ones with heels! But I decided it was time to bite the bullet, so online I went to sniff out the best deal on Asics, my brand of choice. And I was reminded of a great site I'd stumbled upon a few months ago- 6pm.com. And not too much longer, these 50% off Asics were on their way to me. Name brand, current-season shoes for $42? Ok!

I first stumbled upon 6pm in the spring when looking for a dress- they had the exact same French Connection dress I was eyeing at Bloomingdales, but on 6pm it was 50% off! And in poking around a bit more on 6pm last night, I was shocked to see that their brands run from the everyday (Asics, Steve Madden, Sperry) to the upscale (BCBG, French Connection, Theory, Lilly Pulitzer, Nanette Lepore, Botkier) to the luxurious (Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, Lanvin, Vera Wang, Derek Lam, See by Chloe). A few of my favorite picks...

This Missoni Scarf is perfect for fall. They have a ton of styles and colors to choose from!

These Missoni pumps aren't exactly chump change at $570, but admittedly it's better than the regular price of $950. And in a pinch, you could definitely used those heels as a weapon.

They've got a TON of Lilly Pulitzer- tees, tops, skirts, dresses, accessories. I love this Printed Eliot Shirt with a coral motif- would be a fun cover up to throw on with white jeans at the beach. And of course, one can never have too many striped shirts!

I'm incredibly tempted by this fabulous Bale Sundress by Vivienne Westwood- they have a great selection of her pieces for under $500. Doesn't the silver and gold Twist dress have the holidays written all over it?

They've got a fantastic selection of moderately priced Trina Turk- a lot of which I remember seeing in stores not too long ago! The Davey Coat could take you into fall, and this Danica Blouse would pair well with black cigarette pants and a pashmina come holiday parties.

Loving this metallic silver Kate Spade Wellie Bag- the bow really adds that special touch.

I got awfully depressed when I realized that as of yesterday, my pool is closed for the season. But this striking St John gold-trimmed bathing suit could have me looking forward to spring.

J Crew is telling us that high heeled oxfords are in this fall- brings me back to the high heeled Nine West penny loafers I wore on my first day of high school! These Via Spiga Danielles bring you the look- with a hit of bootie influence- without breaking the bank.

Take a spin around 6pm and let us know if you find anything! It helps to look at the list of brands and go from there, as just looking at the "shirts" category will bring up 6,898 hits. Literally. And not all brands on the site is as upscale as, say, Bluefly (beware, there is Ed Hardy lurking in some categories). But, in turn, the savings are definitely more substantial than Bluefly, and the selection is heads and shoulders above the clothing on Overstock or Smartbargains. Happy shopping!
