Marc by Marc on Gilt Groupe... a little a.m. online retail therapy

As I'm sure you guys know, Gilt Groupe is a blessing and a curse. I often delete their emails before even opening them in the morning, just to save myself from being tempted by too many really great deals on designer clothes. Girl on a budget, people.

One time i never skip my Gilt email, though, is when I see those four glorious words: Marc by Marc Jacobs. I always browse the MJ sales because you never know what great little deals you might find. This morning while babysitting, I was feeling down that I didn't have a ticket to the sold out Phoenix concert at the SODO Showbox this weekend. Wallowing in self-pity, I started to browse today's Marc by Marc sale. I was in the mood to let the money I would have spent on a ticket be diverted to a purchase I could wear.

Behold, the Marc By Marc Jacobs Ikat Jersey Top. Originally $138, this cool, comfortable top went for $54 on Gilt. Because items on Gilt Groupe sell out very quickly, I made a split-second decision, added it to my cart and clicked "Buy It Now."

I can't wait for it to arrive in 5 to 7 business days so I can throw it on with skinny jeans, silver ballet flats and cool earrings. I'm also already imagining that it will be great in the spring with my jorts.
