Advertisement is a shopaholic’s happy place. It carries every top name designer, features pieces straight off the runway and has so many mesmerizing accessories your shopping cart can quickly reach a total that amounts to a semester (or four years) of college. So brace yourselves for this news: For the next three weeks the online retailer is offering 30, 40 and wait for it… 50 percent off items! And we’re not talking about contemporary brands; the sale includes high-fashion designers including Burberry, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Marni, Miu Miu, The Row and Valentino.

If you haven’t already started the online version of Supermarket Sweep see below for the absolute best deals that are in the 50 percent off category. We found timeless items your wardrobe needs, festive finds to wear this holiday and some items so reduced in price you just can’t pass them up. Are your credit cards at the ready?

Since the holidays are right around the corner you’re probably focused on finding the best gifts for everyone on your list, but you can’t forget about yourself!

As we mentioned, shoulder cutouts are so hot right now. You can’t click through our Last Night’s Look gallery without encountering one (or 10) a night. So when you mix a standout feature with a never-goes-out-of-style dress (the iconic LBD), you get a dress you can wear for years and years.
