Do only the very wealthy pay retail these days? Seems like it. With so many discount shopping sites that sell high-end items, mere mortals can get said high-end items at low(er)-end prices. But is is there room for yet one more of these sites? LuxGoddess.com
is hoping so. It recently joined the likes of Bluefly, ShopBop, and Gilt to offer upscale items at reduced prices. Here's what makes LuxGoddess different, however: It donates 10% of its proceeds to Bright Pink
, a national nonprofit that provides education and support to young women who are at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Calling itself "the premier site for today's fashion trendsetters looking for great deals on their favorite designer brands," the site carries well-known brands
, with a number of items pulled from online stores
, and covers the standard categories of apparel, shoes, beauty, and accessories. There's also a sale rack
, which is a user's personal sale rack, based on her size and brand preferences.
