I have never hoped to be invited to be a member of a site more than I have for ideeli. The website is an ultra-exclusive site that offers up to 90% discounts on high end designer fashions -- it's like a virtual sample sale. The fashions and accessories on ideeli.com are not worn, they're not the rejected pieces from last season; they are brand new, up-to-the-minute fashions from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Prada, Vivienne Tam

The members-only shopping community has fashions and accessories from this season and last.

"We work directly with the brands and we choose items that we know our members will really love," Mary Cannon told ABC news.

"People can expect to get 40 to 75-percent or more off the original price," said Paul Hurley, ideeli's CEO.

After being invited, the membership is free, or you can opt in to pay $7.99/month to receive VIP text messages to your phone when new items make their way to the store. The first floor membership, as it's called, also entitles members to enter giveaway programs like designer handbags, hats and other goodies.
