I was recently alerted by the helpful people at SheerLuxe to a fabulous shopping site, Cocosa. They’re not just the average online shopping destination though, they have unbelievable deals on fashion brands that are probably on your wish list. They have more than 100 different brands available in select sales for men, women, and children at prices that are up to 70% off the normal retail prices. They also have some items in cosmetics and home goods which they capture under the category of “Lifestyle”. You will certainly be tempted by all of the lovely items that they have at their almost unbelievable prices.
So, after browsing through the site over the last couple of weeks, I figured I had to share this with everyone because it is a pretty terrific site. Here’s what Cocosa say about themselves:
Cocosa is the online shopping destination for handpicked luxury, offering time-limited sales with exclusive discounts on some of the world’s most coveted brands, with new sales for men and women launching daily. We work with over 500 brands to bring you the most fashionable womenswear and menswear, at a fraction of the retail price. Shopping at Cocosa will give you access to discounts on luxury fashion brands at up to 80%. Our experienced team of buyers’ hand-pick only the most coveted fashion and accessories. We know exactly what you need, whether you’re looking for classic investment pieces, seasonal wardrobe top-ups or just a little treat.
They’ve apparently been around for a number of years (a bit more than three, I think), so I feel late to the game. However, better late than never. Recently I’ve seen great things from Diane Von Furstenberg, Alice by Temperley, Nicole Farhi, The Kooples, Halston, Vivienne Westwood, Brooks Brothers, and even shapewear from Yummie Tummie. It seems to me that the prices are at least 50% off of what you would pay at other retailers too. And that is what makes Cocosa so amazing!
Here’s a good example of their pricing that is easy to compare: Perricone MD skin care. They currently have several Perricone products available in a sale that runs through 12 October. And since these things are so easy to compare, I thought I would do a quick check to see how they stack up against other places. I decided to go for the product that seemed to have the biggest price tag, Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione, 30 ml size. At Cocosa the price is a relatively small £59.00 but at FeelUnique, Harrod’s, or John Lewis it has the much heftier price tag of £138.00; you save £79.00 at Cocosa. So, as you can see, that is significantly less and seems to be representative of the discounts that you can find through Cocosa on all of their various items. Certainly even with the £4.95 charge for delivery, you still save a lot over anywhere else you are likely to shop.
The sales are select and there is limited availability, so once something is gone, it really is gone. I’ve not purchased anything yet because I’ve just been browsing and checking prices and things to see what they were like and what types of items they have available. So far I have been really impressed and as soon as we have moved into our new flat and have a permanent address where I can actually receive packages, I’ll definitely be ordering from them. They had some really cool metallic skinny jeans that I was tempted to buy, but I hesitated just a little too long and they ended up being all sold out in my size by the time I actually made my mind up. Drat! But that taught me to not be such a procrastinator next time. And good news, if you’re not in the UK but some other European country, they ship all over Europe for €13.95.
So, if this sounds like the shopping site for you, sign up and start enjoying the deals. When you sign up, they will send you a daily email message with details of the latest sales. And really, if you see something you really want, don’t wait too long or you’ll end up like me – metallic denim-less.
