Del, I've managed to get some good things from designer clearance sites (buyinvite, brandsexclusive, ozsale) for DD but it's sort of time consuming (and addictive!) as you end up checking every morning to see what's on sale. The quality of some of the things I've gotten has been so good, but at target prices. The downside is it usually takes about a month for the stuff to actually get sent to them and then dispatched to you. I'm also in the country so it's nice to have some clothes (for DD and I) that aren't the same as everyone else's.
