The perfect work distraction starts at exactly 9:30am EST: The Outnet's famous extra 40% off sale is kicking into high gear. According to the retailer, over 2,000 items from over 200 designers will be included in the sale-on-a-sale. Rick Owens, Rebecca Minkoff, Proenza Schouler, Opening Ceremony, MM6 Maison Margiela, and plenty of Alexander Wang is all up for grabs as soon as the sale launches. The Outnet will only be running the sale for 48 hours—it closes on Friday, August 28th at 10am EST—so prepare for some glorious impulse buys.
