The End of an Era

Hey guys. Ugh, it's so frustrating to have to write this post, but here we are. 

The backstory if you're new here - I started this blog in 2007, yes, a million years ago now. It's been something I always come back to even if I don't post as regularly as I did back in the day - life happens, you know?! Since starting this blog I got married, divorced, moved to two different states, started 2 businesses, and that's just the highlights. 

Anyways, about 2 or 3 years ago - likely during the pandemic if I'm remembering correctly, I went to login to blog and realized that my domain had expired. Because my email for this blog is primarily spam/sales, etc I don't check it regularly and because of that I missed the renewal emails urging me to update my payment information. 

So, long story short - my CC on my domain was an old/expired card and the domain lapsed and a random person bought it and now it's a Thai spam site. I bought the closest thing I could do the original, thinking maybe it would be easy for people to find me even though the old domain changed, but it's close enough to the old domain/now spam site that it's getting flagged as dangerous and blocked entirely. 

All this to say, I've finally given up after trying all the things to get the site back working properly. So, this is goodbye officially to look4less.net - 16 years, not a bad run, eh? 

I am working on a new project (more to be revealed soon) but in the interim I'll still be sharing my favorite look 4 less finds over on Substack which you can find HERE, and you can follow me on Instagram or LTK for the finds as well. 

I'm so sad to do this, but it's been so frustrating I really don't see any other options. Hope to connect with you again soon via one of the links above.

Look 4 Less: Khaite Lotus Tote

 This gorgeous lotus bag by Khaite retails for $2500, and comes in a variety of colors and finishes.

Zara has a similar style which retails for a more budget friendly $35.90, and also comes in black. Click HERE to view or purchase.


Look 4 Less: The Row Ginza Sandal

 These black flip flop sandals from The Row retail for $990 at Nordstrom.

I found a great dupe for just $69.99,  also available in white with limited sizes available. I will say, I ordered these and they are on the heavy side (I've heard similar things about The Row option) but are a great dupe if you can deal with the weight! Click HERE to purchase.


Look 4 Less: Totême Menfi Oversize Shearling Coat

This gorgeous coat by Totême retails for $2230 at Nordstrom

There are some differences in this look 4 less option, but this is a great alternative and is on sale for $129.99! Click HERE to view or purchase.


Look 4 Less: Sandro Brandon Fringed Jacket

 This cream fringe jacket from Sandro seems to be sold out everywhere but retailed for $520.

Lucky for us, Mango swooped in with an alternative for $299, not a total steal but a great option if it's in the budget. View or purchase it HERE.


Look 4 Less: Cult Gaia Hera Bag

This Hera bag from Cult Gaia is so perfect for those holiday parties we're all attending this time of year. It retails for $498.

If you're on a bit of a budget, you can get a similar look for less with this option from Mango. Click HERE to view or purchase for $69.99.


Rakuten - Get $$ for shopping online!

If you do ANY online shopping and haven't signed up for Rakuten yet, you're losing money! I love this site!!

I've posted about Rakuten before (see previous post here) but I thought I'd do another quick post for those that might be new to the site and have yet to hear about this great (FREE) service!

If you do a lot of online shopping, you really should consider signing up. If you don't know what it is, this little blurb from the Rakuten site may help explain it:

Since our founding in 1997, Rakuten has helped shape the way people shop online, offering Cash Back, deals and shopping rewards on the world’s largest selection of products and services. To date, our 12 million members in the U.S. have earned over $1 billion in Cash Back at their favorite stores.

Click here to see more FAQs.

I always check Rakuten before I buy anything online and I've gotten a decent amount of cash back over the years (I've been using this service since 2005). Every store is different, and they offer double cash back for certain stores that rotate every week. They cut checks 4 times a year which you can have sent to you directly or deposited in your Paypal account (or donated to a charity of your choice). The store selection is great as well, they have everything from Target to J Crew, Madewell to Sephora.

If you click HERE to sign up you'll get a $40 bonus, and I'll get $$ in my account too when you become a qualified member (just spend $40 minimum after using the link prior). That's like a FREE $40 for you!
