Shop It To Me

I said goodbye long ago to catalogs on my doorstep, and I’d rather downgrade to an iPhone 3G than navigate one more department store sale section. So, I’ll need a new tactic if I want to stalk my dream designer denim until it’s at a price that my wallet can handle. Discover Shop It To Me, the shopping website my I hoped I’d find before succumbing to the “R-Word” (retail).

Shop It To Me bills itself as an online personal shopping assistant… one that just happens to know when that pair of straight leg, indigo wash, Citizen’s of Humanity jeans drops in price by over $50. Think of it as a digital catalog with products selected by you, the savvy buyer.

After signing up for an account, it’s time to get curating. Fill your Shop It To Me profile by checking off which brands, sizes, and clothing categories your new assistant should be diligently scouring for across 150+ big name e-tailers including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. The 24 clothing categories range from denim to dresses to shoes to athletic gear, so you’ve got one deals dashboard for all your clothing needs. Then, when items from beloved brands or a certain category go on sale — ding! — check that email inbox for a run down of what goods have hit bargain prices.

The icing on the cake of this shopping concierge is you control how often sale alerts land in your email. Know you only have time to indulge in retail therapy on the weekends? Set preferences to receive emails exclusively on Saturday, when you can then catch up on the week’s finds. Of course, you can tell Shop It To Me emails to arrive daily, which is how I scored my new everyday pair of Citizen’s (check ’em out below) for 40% off of what they were when I tried them on in the store.

It’s the thrill of the chase, without the— ahem— legwork.
