Vente Privée – it literally means Private Sale in French and that’s EXACTLY what this new to the United States membership site that’s partnering with American Express is. A private sale that comes directly to YOU with some of the world’s finest brands. Having spent time in France, I was familiar with the program, as it was the first program of it’s kind (launched in 2001) of what has become the way that we’ve gotten used to shopping for deeply discounted designer goods. BUT – not only were they the FIRST of their kind, but they may very well have the MOST exclusive high-end designer goods that I’ve seen in these membership sites.
I admit that I signed up the FIRST DAY it became available, because I just needed to compare, and if you’ve been watching any of my tweets you’ll see how excited I am about Vente Privée’s sales.

I find that Vente Privée is geared to those who shop the likes of Neiman’s, Barney’s and Bergdorf – so don’t expect to find any dollar deals here. You will find designers such as KaufmanFranco, who has dressed the likes of Julianne Hough, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Taylor Swift at many red carpet affairs (and whom I frequently see displayed in Neiman Marcus).
I suppose it makes me feel like I’ve got some of my favorite stores, only at outlet mall prices RIGHT AT MY FINGERTIPS! The best part of course is that signing up is absolutely FREE.

I received a Pucci scarf to facilitate this review. That’s right PUCCI (see what I mean about Vente Privée). Opinions are strictly my own – PUCCI!
