Scouring through sales takes a lot of time and effort, but nothing pays off like finding the piece you laid eyes on months ago that was too pricey for your pocket. Here, InStyle’s senior market editor/digital correspondent Dana Avidan Cohn does all the hard work for you. Each week, Dana finds the best of the hard-to-resist steals out there.

Why it’s a score: Moda Operandi is one of the most well edited sites around. Everything feels as though it was handpicked by your very own personal shopper who has impeccable taste. It's also heavy on exclusive items and carries color ways that you won't find anywhere else. Moda Operandi is currently having their Fall sale with items up to 75% off. It's not to be missed.
