Love designer clothing but hate paying full price? Me, too.

Searching the Web for sales can be a time-consuming activity, so I've gathered my five favorite discounted items online Wednesday.

In honor of today's unseasonably warm weather here on Long Island, today is dedicated to dresses.

1. What: Alice + Olivia Randi tank dress

Now: $277.20

4. What: Ali Ro silk dress

Was: $350

Why it's a steal: Ever since Michelle Obama turned heads at the State of the Union address in a sapphire blue Barbara Tfank dress in January, American women from coast to coast have been wanting to do the same. This royal blue number should do the trick, and the petal appliques on the bodice add a soft, romantic touch.
